This Summit builds on five previous workshops on the general topic of hurricanes and climate, but departs from them by focusing on the pathway from hazard to impact. The goal of the Summit is to present state-of-the art research, identify specific outstanding research questions, and address what is needed to help bring the fruits of research on hurricanes and climate to bear on quantitative risk assessment.
The ESSL Testbed is an annually returning event with the aim to enhance severe weather forecasting across Europe. It addresses forecasters as well as developers of forecast products.
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.
Participants will be provided with a robust, up-to-date conceptual understanding of the governing processes of severe convective storms and forecasting strategies. Specific topics that will be covered, among others, include synoptic- and mesoscale lift, the spectrum of convective storm organization, severe weather phenomena such as large hail and tornadoes, and ingredients-based forecasting.
The workshop 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 call for abstracts for the 4th International Conference Energy & Meteorology is now open. The Conference theme for ICEM 2017 is: “Challenges in Weather and Climate Services for Energy”.
The conference will gather researchers that have an expertise in one of the two areas (data science, environmental data) and some interest for the other. Its main goal is to explore the fruitful interplay between the two areas, and ultimately to help create new connections and collaborations between the scientific communities involved.
The goal of the school is to provide graduate students and career scientists with advanced knowledge on climate change science and related topics as well as with the Paris Agreement. Participants will discuss with renowned scientists important themes of the three IPCC Assessment Report 5 Working Groups, in a multidisciplinary and multicultural context.
The 'Impact of Science' Conference is organised by the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) and will take place at the Met Office, Exeter. The annual conference provides an excellent opportunity for student and early career scientists, working in fields related to meteorology to present their work in a friendly environment. There will be keynote speakers, poster sessions as well as sessions for oral presentations.
The theme of the conference is Weather and Climate Impacts: From research and services to application and policy. It aims to build upon the thriving research community in the UK, and provide a platform for the interdisciplinary community to come together to share recent research and to forge exciting new collaborations.
