OpenIFS user meeting 2017

Workshop theme: Amospheric Variability: Seasonal Predictability and Teleconnections
OpenIFS is an ECMWF activity that provides an portable version of the IFS forecast model for use in research and education. This user meeting brings together new, interested and established users of OpenIFS/IFS from Universities, National Met Services and other organisations to discuss topics on the workshop theme. The workshop is open to all.

21/09/2017 - 23/09/2017, Figueira da Foz, Portugal
4th International Conference on Ecohydrology, Soil and Climate Change (EcoHCC’17)

This 4th edition of the conference has a common theme: ‘We cannot stop natural hazards but we can arm ourselves with knowledge'. The aim is to bring together researchers in the areas of Climate, Meteorology, Extreme events and Natural hazards, Ecohydrology, Hydrology, Environment, Soil, Geo-Statistics for sharing experiences and promoting the integration of these themes as a multidisciplinary framework.

Understanding Clouds

EPM12, Le Bastard

World Meteorological Day - 23 March 2017.
Clouds are of enormous importance for weather, climate and water. Clouds are central to weather observations and forecasts.

Research scientist position on atmospheric variability and predictability – R2

Closing date: 09 April 2017
Barcelona Supercomputing Center - Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS), Barcelona, Spain
Within BSC-ES the climate prediction group aims at developing a climate modelling and prediction capability for time scales ranging from a few weeks to a few decades into the future (sub-seasonal to decadal climate prediction) and from regional to global scales. The group has a particular focus on the benefits of high-resolution global modelling. The group members use the EC-Earth European global climate model for their developments and collaborate closely with all the members of the EC-Earth consortium.

PhD/Postdoc positions on modelling ice-sheet/climate interaction with CESM-CISM

Closing date: not specified
TU Delft, The Netherlands
The Department of Geoscience & Remote Sensing of TU Delft, The Netherlands, invites researchers who are interested in a cryosphere/climate related PhD/post-doc position to submit an application to model the Greenland ice sheet and/or Laurentide ice sheet and/or its climate with the Community Earth System Model coupled to the Community Ice Sheet Model.
