19/06/2017 - 23/06/2017, Montreal, Canada
5th WCRP-JSC/CAS Working Group on Numerical Experimentation (WGNE) Workshop

This worksop is including a special theme on the Year of Tropics-Midlatitude Interactions and Teleconnections organized by the WWRP/WCRP/S2S/Teleconnection sub-project. The goal is to promote and encourage the participation of community in a coordinated framework, YTMIT, focused on understanding the role of tropical-midlatitude teleconnections on intra-seasonal time-scales as a source of predictability and model errors. The main activities of YTMIT include observational and theoretical efforts to develop process-oriented diagnostics to improve our insight into the physical mechanisms; high-resolution modeling efforts designed to explore the impact of diabatic heating on the model fidelity to simulate tropical-midlatitudes teleconnections; efforts to develop metrics of teleconnection model skill and identify processes that vex prediction systems; activities to implement forecast metrics under operational conditions; efforts to establish the role of intra-seasonal teleconnections in the occurrence and frequency of high impact weather events.

The session will include solicited talks, contributed oral presentations and posters. Abstracts are sought for studies on YTMIT activities with an emphasis on recent advancements towards the diagnostics and understanding of systematic errors.
