Hydrology of the Baltic Sea Basin: Observations, Modelling, Forecasting
Dates: 8-9 October 2019
Location: State Hydrological Institute (SHI), St. Petersburg, Russia
Abstract Submission Deadline: 16 August 2019

The workshop aims to bring together scientists to overcome the barriers in hydrological studies, including monitoring, modelling and forecasting. Both water quantity and quality issues will be discussed. We hope that covering the different facets of hydrology will help us to develop a more integrated understanding of the interactions between the water, energy and matter cycles, and the direct and indirect anthropogenic effects.


  • to review recent scientific contributions to assess past, current and future changes of the water cycle,
  • to share the experience of hydrological and hydrochemical monitoring, using different tools and approaches,
  • to review recent developments in hydrological modelling in the Baltic Sea basin and neighboring domains, and
  • to discuss water quality issues and waste water treatment projects in the Balti c Sea basin.

EGU General Assembly 2020

Dates: 3-8 May 2020
Location: Austria Center Vienna (ACV), Vienna, Austria
Call for Session Proposals Deadline: 5 September 2019

The EGU General Assembly 2020 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

3rd ISMC Conference – Advances in Modeling Soil Systems

Dates: 24-27 September 2020
Location: University of Tianjin, Tianjin, China
Call for Session Proposals Deadline: 31 September 2019

The International Soil Modeling Consortium (ISMC) aims to integrate and advance soil systems modeling, data gathering, and observational capabilities, through:

  • bringing together leading experts in modelling soil processes within all major soil disciplines
  • addressing major scientific gaps in describing key processes and their long term impacts with respect to the different functions and ecosystem services provided by soil
  • promoting integration of soil modelling expertise in neighboring disciplines (climate, land surface, eco, hydro, and other models)
  • performing soil model intercomparison studies at local to global scales
  • consolidating soil and other data platforms for modeling purposes
  • integrating societal and environmental considerations into soil and ecosystem functioning

Request for Expressions of Interest on Problems in Climate Modeling

Expression of Interest Deadline: 15 September 2019

The Virtual Earth System Research Institute (VESRI) is a new initiative supported by Schmidt Futures to find and fund transformational research in Earth System Sciences. VESRI is seeking expressions of interest (EOIs) targeting areas of climate research which are primed to take advantage of the current rapid evolution of computational technology, and potentially, observing platforms. VESRI is specifically looking for research that could radically improve climate modeling and uses advances in observations and computational science to target current weaknesses in climate models.

Special Journal of Climate Collection on Earth’s Energy Imbalance and Its Implications

Submit an article to the new Journal of Climate special collection, “The Earth’s energy imbalance and its implications.” Submissions for the special collection should consider observations and modeling of all aspects of Earth’s energy imbalance and the resultant heating of various components of the Earth system (ocean, land, atmosphere and cryosphere). Authors are reminded that the IPCC AR6 has a deadline of 31st December 2019 for papers to be eligible for citation in the Working Group I report, but the collection itself will continue to accept submissions during 2020.
