Information on enrollment

Membership in The Japan Society of Atmospheric Chemistry (JpSAC)

What is JpSAC (The Japan Society of Atmospheric Chemistry)?

In order to effectively address global environmental issues as well as to draw together scientist belonging to traditionally separate academic societies and offer them a forum for mutual exchange and discussions, the Japan Society of Atmospheric Chemistry (JpSAC) evolved through the times to become the present organization, and attained its current name in 2014. Becoming a member of JpSAC is associated with various benefits, but the true benefit is having an opportunity for professional and personal growth through dialogue between Japanese scientists and international researchers residing in Japan.

Main activities and events

Research meetings

As a domestic platform for research presentations and communication, we organize two annual meetings, the Atmospheric Chemistry Session of the Japan Geoscience Union Meeting (JpGU) in spring (around May) and the Atmospheric Chemistry Discussion Forum in autumn (around October).


We publish our online periodical, the Archives of Atmospheric Chemistry Research (AACR) twice a year, in January and July.


In order to encourage young scientists who excel in research, we offer the “JpSAC Young Scientist Award” and the “JpSAC Excellent Student Presentation Award” of the Atmospheric Chemistry Discussion Forum.


JpSAC aims at a democratic management, and the Chair and Steering Committee members are elected through direct elections.
