SCAR WMO joint fellowship scheme announcement
The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (www.scar.org) is excited to be collaborating with the World Meteorological Organisation on a new fellowship opportunity for researchers in countries with developing economies.
It will enable researchers to undertake research at major international laboratories, field facilities, and/or institutes in or operated by SCAR’s member countries, with the goal of exposing them to recent advances in research and to develop long-term scientific links and partnerships.
To find out more visit https://www.scar.org/awards/fellowships/overview/. The deadline is 17th July 2019.
To be eligible for this fellowship you need to be:
- enrolled in a PhD or within 5 years of finishing PhD;
- a citizen of a WMO Member Country;
- a citizen of a developing economy;
- Visiting an Antarctic research facility in or run by a SCAR member country, which is different from applicant’s (a) country of origin and (b) current country of residence;
- Proposing a topic in a weather, climate, or operational hydrology related discipline which links to the objectives of one or more of SCAR’s science groups, including the Humanities and Social Sciences group, and/or the Scientific Research Programmes.
There are two Symposia of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) coming up in 2020:
Contributions to both symposia have to be submitted by 1 August 2019
Susan Solomon Symposium
Ozone, Climate, and Policy: Susan’s Contributions Then and Now
This symposium aims to honor Prof. Solomon’s past achievements in and ongoing contributions to atmospheric science. Sessions will highlight the history and future of environmental policy and assessments, breakthroughs in middle atmospheric and ozone science, and provide perspectives on our changing climate—one of the greatest challenges of our time. Each of these three topics will be communicated through invited talks and solicited posters.
Call for Papers
- Wisdom of Solomon: History & Successes in Environmental Policy
- Ozone & the Middle Atmosphere: Past, Present and Future
- Climate Change: The Challenge of the 21st Century
Daniel Gilford (*protected email*) & A.R. Ravishankara (*protected email*)
Middle Atmosphere One-Day Symposium
Call for Papers
- Middle Atmosphere – Posters Only

The TRI-MIP-ATHLON-2 Workshop is taking place from 11 June – 14 June in Princeton, New Jersey, USA.
There is a possibility to remotely join the TRI-MIP-ATHLON-2 Workshop for those, who are not able to attend in person.
Please find the agenda here.
To remotely join the workshop, please register for TRI-MIP-ATHLON-2 Workshop at:
The joint workshop will focus on new results from the multi-model experiments to quantify changes in composition, the resulting effective radiative forcing and the consequent climate responses.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
7-8 December 2019 University of California – Berkeley, USA

CATCH is a jointly sponsored IGAC and SOLAS Activity. The CATCH mission is to facilitate atmospheric chemistry research within the international community, with a focus on natural processes specific to cold regions of the Earth. Cold regions include areas which are seasonally or permanently covered by snow and ice, from the high mountains to the polar ice sheets and sea ice zones as well as regions where ice clouds that undergo chemistry are found.
Dear members of the WCRP Community,
We are delighted to report that the final draft of the WCRP Strategic Plan 2019-2028 is now available:
Note that while the Plan still requires the official approval of the WCRP Co-sponsors, it is not envisioned that any further changes will be made. We will notify you again once all three Co-sponsors have given their final approval.
We should all congratulate ourselves on completing this first step in the process of delivering a WCRP that will be fit for purpose and fit for the future. Particular thanks go to Guy Brasseur and Amanda Lynch for their outstanding leadership and for all their hard work over the two years that it took to develop this Plan; to the JSC Officers of 2018, Anny Cazenave, Mauricio M. Mata, and Martin Visbeck, for all the time that they invested in the process; and to Detlef Stammer and Helen Cleugh for addressing the Co-sponsor comments and pulling together the final document.
We now look forward to implementing this Plan and to build on the enthusiasm and momentum that was apparent at the Implementation and Planning Meeting and JSC Session just a few weeks ago. We will be in touch soon with further details on the next steps of this process.
