Last August 8-12, 2011, the Manila Observatory and the Department of Physics of Ateneo de Manila University participated in the 8th Annual Meeting and World Community Geosciences Exhibition in Taipei International Convention Center. The meeting was organized by the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS). The faculty members present were Dr. Nofel Lagrosas and Dr. Gemma Narisma. With Dr. Lagrosas are two of his undergraduate thesis students Joseph Angan and Cornelius Csar Jude Salinas. With Dr. Narisma are two of her graduate assistants at the Manila Observatory who are taking their MS Atmospheric Science: Julie Mae Dado and Carlo Jamandre. Dr. Lagrosas is the chair of the Department of Physics and a scientist in the Urban Air Quality/Instrumentation Technology and Development program of Manila Observatory. Dr. Narisma is an Assistant Professor of the Department of Physics and head of the Regional Climate Systems program of Manila Observatory.

Below is the list of oral and poster presentations:
