2nd Climate Observation Conference – postponed

The organising committee of the Conference announces today that the GCOS/WCRP Climate Observation Conference is postponed.

It has become clear that after more than one year of continual virtual meetings, we are all suffering from “Zoom fatigue”. It has been difficult to develop an online format that allows experts to present their papers and allow the discussions we would like to foster. This was also reflected in the number of submitted abstracts.

In the coming months, we will be working towards a new event format which allows experts from around the world to fully engage and interact, with the prospect of holding the Conference in 2022. This would also give us the opportunity of celebrating the 30th Anniversary of GCOS.

This difficult decision has been taken after careful consideration and consultation with the sponsoring programmes GCOS and WCRP and the supporting organization EUMETSAT.

We sincerely thank those who have put time and effort into their registration and we apologise for this delay. We are contacting those who submitted an abstract: their contributions will be considered for the new conference.

The new date of the Climate Conference will be announced in due time on the same website:

We encourage you to join us then and look forward to seeing you all there, stay tuned!!!
