We are happy to learn that the stimulus of the Norwegian School will now be deeply transplanted in this country and Symposium on Urban Air Pollution and Planning continued in freedom from the restrictions of war-torn Europe. The Symposium on Urban Air Pollution and Planning will be Prof. J.

Deadline for American meteorologists through his works and having abstracts (maximum one page) has been extended to 10 resided here since 1939, seems as one of us. It is most fitting September 1990.
