1993   Workshop in late 1993, at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, USA. A special focus of this workshop was on communication between GEIA inventory developers and atmospheric chemistry modelers. The workshop was scheduled in conjunction with a symposium on "Challenges in Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Change: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow," held by NCAR to honor Paul Crutzen on his 60th birthday.
