3rd International Symposium on Environmental Hydraulics with a Special Theme in Urban Fluid Dynamics

Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona (December 5 - 8, 2001)

Dear Colleague,

I would like to bring to your attention the following announcement for the 
3rd International Symposium on Environmental Hydraulics with a Special 
Theme in Urban Fluid Dynamics to be held in Tempe, Arizona in December 2001.

I also would like to encourage you to submit an abstract in 
Atmospheric Dispersion or one of the other Special Urban Topics; also please 
pass this information on to your colleagues. We look forward to an interesting 
and stimulating Symposium in Tempe and hope to see you there. Please let me 
know if you plan to or do submit an abstract. Thank you.

Please note that the abstract deadline is January 31, 2001.


Jeff Weil 
Convenor, Atmospheric Dispersion Session


with a Special Theme in URBAN FLUID DYNAMICS

Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona

December 5 - 8, 2001


"Atmospheric Dispersion" 
"Chemical and Biological Effects" 
"Microscale and Mesoscale Atmospheric Flows" 
"Thermally-Driven Environmental Flows" 
"Remote Sensing of the Urban Environment and Water Quality"

The 3rd International Symposium on Environmental Hydraulics will be 
held between 5 - 8 December 2001 in Tempe, Arizona within the greater 
Phoenix metropolitan area, known as the "Valley of the Sun." As with 
the previous two highly-successful meetings in this series (held at 
the University of Hong Kong in 1991 and 1998), the overall theme of 
the Symposium is the application of fluid dynamics research to issues 
that currently face policy makers in the management of air and water 
resources. Full details of the meeting scope, topics, and registration 
procedures are given at the Symposium website 

As you can see, the Symposium has a special theme of Urban Fluid Dynamics. 
Within the regular Hydraulics Symposium, sessions will be held on 
1) turbulence and diffusion, 2) jets, plumes, and wakes, 3) stratified and 
rotating flows, topographic effects, and outfalls, 4) environmental 
impact and risk assessment, 5) remote sensing of the urban environment 
and water quality, and a number of other topics. In the Urban Fluid 
Dynamics portion of the Symposium, sessions will be held on the 
Special Topics listed at the top, "Atmospheric Dispersion" etc. Please 
visit the website noted above to learn more about the details and 
location of the Symposium, including the fascinating geography and 
sightseeing in the area.

I am writing to ask you to consider attending the Symposium and 
submitting an abstract for the "Atmospheric Dispersion" session or one 
of the others in the Urban Fluid Dynamics Theme. We welcome contributions 
from laboratory and/or theoretical studies, numerical investigations, 
or field-based studies. I would appreciate your passing this message on 
to colleagues working in these fields. Please also note that the 
Symposium organizers are encouraging participation from researchers 
from emerging nations (with the potential of financial support); your 
help in disseminating this information to your colleagues in these 
regions is very much appreciated.

If you wish to present a paper in any of the sessions, please submit a 
one-page abstract to Robert Rankin, the Symposium Secretary, by 
January 31, 2001. Electronic submission is preferred using the website, 
www.eas.asu.edu/iseh2001/abstracts and pre-registration using the 
Symposium website is strongly encouraged.
