Presentations given during the 29th session of our Scientific Steering Group can be viewed at http://www.gewexevents.org/events/ssg-29/agenda/. Updates on the last year’s activities from our Panels, plus talks on new and planned Chinese satellite missions measuring everything from carbon dioxide to water cycle observations, are linked to on the agenda.
Dates: 15-18 May 2017
Location: Institut d’Études Scientifiques de Cargèse, Corsica
Abstract Deadline: 15 March 2017
This workshop aims to come to a mechanistic understanding of the processes affecting exchange of mass and energy across the air-sea interface from nano-to-global scales. The abstract submission deadline is 15 March 2017, and topics include developments in air-sea flux observations, translating upper ocean turbulence observations into parameterisations and models, and more.

This CFMIP international meeting will focus on the theme of the WCRP Grand Challenge on Clouds, Circulation and Climate Sensitivity, in addition to addressing other ongoing CFMIP activities. Topics for oral and poster sessions include:
A symposium to celebrate William B. Rossow’s science contributions and retirement
Dates: June 6-8, 2017
Location: Columbia University, New York, New York
NASA/GISS, CCNY/CREST, and Columbia University are organizing a scientific symposium with the overall theme of “Clouds, their Properties, and their Climate Feedbacks.” The motivation for the symposium is the recent retirement of William B. Rossow, after 40 years of exceptional contributions in a wide range of planetary and atmospheric science fields. The objective of the symposium is to stimulate discussion on the progress made over the past decades in understanding cloud properties, processes, and feedbacks, and to explore strategies to tackle the issues that remain unresolved.
