The journey of the Atmospheric Science Symposium (ATMOS), which is organized by the Istanbul Technical University (ITU), Department of Meteorology, began in 1981. This year, we marked our calendars for the 9th ATMOS. Considering the 38 years
since the beginning of this journey, nine meetings may sound too few for such an event. However, during this period, the ITU/Department of eteorology organized many other scientific meetings, which individually focused on several topics
such as water resources, air pollution, hydrometeorology, meteorological disasters, renewable energy and so on. ATMOS, among these, is unique in the sense that it includes all these research topics and provides a platform to communicate
ideas and findings across disciplines. Hence, ATMOS became biennial since 2008 with the need to adapt to the increasing importance of atmospheric sciences in the modern world.
