Announcement: workshop on the QBO, including its teleconnections and couplings to atmospheric composition, and general developments in wave-mean-flow processes in the atmosphere

27 – 31 March 2023,

Oxford, UK

The workshop will consist of invited and submitted scientific talks and posters, plus open discussion in both plenary and smaller groups. It will also be an opportunity to present and discuss first results from new QBOi experiments on sensitivities to ENSO and QBO biases (QBOi nudging experiments).

The workshop is organised by the QBOi (Quasi-Biennial Oscillation initiative) SPARC activity in conjunction with the CCMI (Chemistry-Climate Model Initiative) and GW (Gravity Wave) SPARC activities.

Registration details will be made available in December. We anticipate some travel support for early-career scientists will be available, and remote participation will also be possible.

This workshop replaces the QBO@60+ workshop originally scheduled for July 2020 at the Met Office in Exeter, UK.
