ECMWF: Scientist / Senior Scientist - to work on the ECMWF model dynamical core development

Closing date: 28 February 2018
ECMWF, Shinfield Park, Reading, UK
The incumbent of this post will work in a team responsible for maintaining and improving the current hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic dynamical core of the IFS model and its coupling with physical parametrizations. He or she will be significantly involved in horizontal/vertical resolution upgrades and collaborating closely with other teams of the Research Department.

ACDC2018 - summer school on the "Hemispheric Asymmetry in Climate"

Advanced Climate Dynamics Courses (ACDC) are yearly summer schools for advanced PhD candidates and early career scientists. The goal is to mix students and lecturers with empirical and dynamical training within climate science and focus on understanding the basic principles and dynamics relating to asymmetries in climate.

ESSL Seminar: Forecasting Severe Convection II

The lectures target meteorologists with prior forecasting experience of synoptic-scale weather and prior exposure to the fundamentals of atmospheric dynamics. The lectures will cover the dynamics and prediction of severe thunderstorms and their attendant hazards.

10/09/2018 - 14/09/2018, Wiener Neustadt, Austria
ESSL Seminar Flash Floods Forecasting

This lecture will address the current state of knowledge about heavy rainfall and flash flooding, along with current research aimed at improving forecasts through increased understanding and sophisticated numerical modeling techniques.

11/06/2018 - 13/07/2018, Wiener Neustadt, Austria
ESSL Testbed 2018

The goal of the Testbed is twofold. First, it caters forecasters who want to learn how to forecast severe convective storms using state-of-the-art forecasting tools. Second, it is a hands-on evaluation of new, sometimes experimental, forecast products.

01/10/2018 - 05/10/2018, Wiener Neustadt, Austria
ESSL Seminar: Forecasting Severe Convection I

During the morning lectures all relevant issues of convection and the basics of severe convection forecasting will be discussed in depth, while the afternoon exercises will involve forecasting convection either in the current situation or using past cases for different parts of Europe.

Activities of the Austrian Society for Meteorology, ÖGM, in 2017

The ÖGM organised several events, among them the 7th Österreichische MeteorologInnentag. The "Golden Hann Medal" was awarded to Inge Auer during the "Austrian Climate Day" and the "Max Margules Prize" for an outstanding paper published in the MetZet was presented to Francesco Isotta.
