6th WGNE Workshop on Systematic Errors in Weather and Climate Models

The deadline for abstract submission to the 6th WGNE Workshop on Systematic Errors in Weather and Climate Models, ECMWF, Reading, 31 October to 4 November 2022. Has been extended.

Abstracts are due 13 June 2022.

The workshop brings together a wide range of experts on simulating the Earth System including atmosphere, ocean, waves, land-surface, atmospheric composition, cryosphere, and associated disciplines to advance the understanding of systematic simulation errors at all timescales. A particular emphasis is given to identifying errors in complex coupled systems and to understand their root causes. Progress in diagnosing and addressing systematic errors using a wide range of tools ranging from classical methods to advanced technologies such as data assimilation and machine learning / AI will be documented. The workshop will encourage an active discussion on relative merits of active development of physical models and parametrisations to address systematic errors versus bias correction methods. Please see the website for additional details on the topics of interest and format.

Early career researchers from selected countries will be able to enter a competition for best abstracts for oral presentations. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is pleased to offer funding for travel to ECMWF (UK) to the winners of the competition. Please see here for details.

Tipping Element Discussion Series

We are delighted to invite you to the following event in the Tipping Element Discussion Series

Paleoclimate insights on societal collapse 
How did climate influence the collapse of ancient civilizations? 

3 June 2022, 17:30 – 19:00 CEST 

Join AIMES, Earth Commission, Future Earth and the WCRP Safe Landing Climates Lighthouse Activity for the Paleo focused webinar in a series that aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. This event will look at paleo insights on climate change and how it has impacted societies – sometimes leading to their collapse. 

Presentations : 

  • Collapse of complex societies – Joseph Tainter (Utah State University) 
  • How climate change impacted ancient civilizations- Ann Kinzig (Arizona State University) 

Moderated by Timothy Lenton (University of Exeter)

GCOS Climate Observation Conference – Abstract submission deadline coming up!

The 2nd GCOS Climate Observation Conference (17-19 October 2022, Darmstadt Germany) will gather experts of climate science, climate observations, technology innovation, data scientists, climate services, users of data information and funding agencies to discuss and develop pathways towards a fit-for-purpose climate observing system for 2050 and beyond.

The call for abstracts is open until 1 June

Six themes are proposed for the submissions and are the basis for the Conference sessions: 

  • Climate Observing Networks
  • Climate Extremes and Tipping points
  • Climate Observations to support Climate Policies
  • Climate Data Records
  • Data Processing and Management
  • The Global Climate Observing system in the future: GCOS 2050

Travel grants will be available for early career researchers coming from the Global South and presenting abstracts. 

Do not miss the recent updates on the Climate Symposium here and do not forget to submit your abstract before the 1st June!

Call for participation in the next CATCH Open Science Workshop on 9-13 May 2022

CATCH proudly announces the next science workshop to discuss atmospheric chemistry research, with a focus on natural processes specific to cold regions of the Earth.  Please register online here.

The workshop will host invited talks, social interactions, and contributed posters on CATCH related topics with the aim of fostering scientific interactive discussions between researchers on outstanding questions. This workshop addresses researchers at all stages of their careers and will provide ample opportunity for early career scientist to present and discuss their work.

Sessions and topics will include:

  • Linking biogeochemistry to aerosol-cloud interactions in the Southern Ocean and Antarctic
  • Ocean-ice-snow-atmosphere fluxes 
  • Polar halogen chemistry and interlinked processes
  • Cryospheric links to aerosol-cloud interactions 
  • Coupling of ocean-ice-atmosphere processes: from sea-Ice biogeochemistry to aerosols and Clouds

The meeting format will be one topic per day split into 3 events about 2 hours each plus social time and poster sessions. The schedule will cover all time zones. We look forward to your participation.

IAMAS Early Career Scientist Webinar Series #7 March 25, 2022

As part of the monthly IAMAS webinars, we would like to announce that IAMAS will host a ICMA related webinar on Friday 25. March at 10am CET (9am UTC). It will be about sea-ice and the stratospheric polar vortex. The (Early-Career-Scientist) speaker will be Dr. Marlene Kretschmer from University of Reading. See the full announcement here.

The webinar will be on Zoom and you are all welcome to attend: please register to get the link. The webinar will be recorded and uploaded on the IAMAS youtube Channel.

Virtual discussion forum for the expansion of the global network of ODSs, HFCs, and other compounds of interest to the Montreal Protocol

A 3-hour on-line forum will be held to discuss ideas and present information on the development of an improved monitoring network to identify and quantify emissions of Montreal Protocol gases (ODSs and HFCs) from additional regions of the globe. In particular, the workshop is focused on:

  • Understanding sources of emissions: past production and consumption, the evolution of banks, and accuracy of bottom-up emissions.
  • The future evolution of ODSs, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), and other compounds of importance to the Montreal Protocol.
  • Observational systems and techniques including standards and the metrology of these measurement systems.
  • Siting and development of new stations for improving regional coverage of Montreal Protocol gases (ODSs and HFCs).

When: 16 March 2022 – 21-24 UTC

WCRP Sea Level 2022 Conference – Abstract submission open!

The WCRP Sea Level 2022 conference will provide an opportunity to share the present status and future of climate-related sea-level research with a strong focus on the application of sea-level science for adaptation and stakeholder needs. Given the critical need for risk assessment and coastal adaptation, it will include direct participation by a global cross-section of both leading sea level researchers and adaptation practitioners. The conference will feature a robust conversation between these communities to inform efforts to bridge science and society at this critical moment, including consideration of the new structure of WCRP.

The conference will take place in Singapore from 12 to 16 July 2022 and abstract submission is now open until 15 March 2022. Early-bird registrations are open until 1 April 2022.
