Workshop: Spatial Organisation of Convection, Clouds and Precipitation

Today, the modelling of Earth’s atmosphere is performed at such high spatio-temporal resolution, that it sometimes is difficult to distinguish observations from models. However, fundamental understanding of what drives pattern-formation in the cloud fields and its effect on precipitation and the cloud feedback remain to be uncovered. Extreme precipitation events – representing an immediate threat to humans and infrastructure – are still not well understood, but often related to the formation of cloud clusters. The basic mechanism underlying tropical cloud clustering over the ocean, leading to the Madden-Julian Oscillation and hurricanes, is not convincingly narrowed down.

This workshop aims to provide an interactive platform to present and discuss ongoing work and open questions about organised and self-organised phenomena in cloud fields.

The workshop aims to bring together the communities working on climate physics, statistical mechanics and meso-scale meteorology.
