The workshop will teach participants the basics of regional climate modelling science using a combination of hands-on practical exercises and theoretical sessions. It is primarily aimed at users with little or no prior experience of running regional climate models.
The goal of the workshop is to discuss and promote all aspects of verification methodology research and practice, as applied to all types of forecasts on all spatial and temporal scales, and weather warnings. Special sessions are planned on verification methods for sub-seasonal and longer range forecasts. Participants are welcome from operational, research and forecast user communities.
The Open Science Meeting (OSM) and the associated Young Scientists Meeting (YSM) are the premier scientific events of Past Global Changes (PAGES), a core project of Future Earth and a scientific partner of the World Climate Research Programme.
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 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 GABY-VASA project is pleased to invite you to this conference and workshop with the regional focus on Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and adjacent islands, the sub-Antarctic islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. There will be ample possibilities to discuss contributions and to elaborate on open scientific issues as well as new project ideas.
Workshop registration deadline: 15 May 2017
