Workshop on the Future of Cumulus Parametrization

Dates: 10-14th July 2017
Location: Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands
Abstract Deadline: 31 March 2017

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss progress, challenges, and future directions of the representation of atmospheric convection in weather and climate models. The 4.5-day meeting will discuss all aspects of our ability to observe, understand, model, and parametrize the key aspects of cumulus convection.

COSPAR 2017 – 3rd Symposium of the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR): Small Satellites for Space Research

Dates: 18-22 September 2017
Location: Jeju Island, South Korea
Abstract Deadline: 31 March 201

COSPAR symposiums aims to promote space research at a regional level in emerging countries and are held every two years in a different area of the world. Topics for this symposium range from new ideas for upper atmosphere research with micro- and nano-satellites to enabling new technologies.


2017 CFMIP Meeting on Clouds, Precipitation, Circulation, and Climate Sensitivity

Dates: 25-28 September 2017
Location: University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan
Abstract Deadline: 30 April 2017

The Meeting on Clouds, Precipitation, Circulation, and Climate Sensitivity will be held 25-28 September 2017 at Itoh HallHongo CampusUniversity of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan. 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.

The four-day meeting will contain oral and poster sessions on:
  • Modeling and observational constraints on cloud feedbacks, adjustments and climate sensitivity, including the role of moist convection in cloud feedbacks
  • Cloud/circulation/precipitation coupling and its variability in present and future climates, including hydrological extremes and ITCZ and storm track changes.
  • Process based evaluation of clouds and cloud controlling factors in climate models using fine scale models and observations, including satellite simulators.
  • How the interactions between clouds, greenhouse gases and aerosols affect temperature and precipitation in a changing climate?
  • How will the organization of cloud systems interact with climate change?
  • Coordination of CFMIP and Grand Challenge activities with CMIP6.
  • Early outputs from analyses to the CMIP6/CFMIP3 experiments.

Special INARCH Issue of Earth System Science Data

Submission Deadline: 30 September 2017

This special issue will be open to all submissions within its scope. There is an international need to improve the understanding and modeling of mountain snow and ice hydrological processes. This has prompted 40 scientists, operating 23 mountain research catchments around the world, to launch a new GEWEX Hydroclimate Panel Cross-cut Project – INARCH, the International Network for Alpine Research Catchment Hydrology.

This mountain hydrology data publication special issue will compile data from mountain catchments around the world in one central repository to the benefit of global alpine hydrological research. The editors will entertain papers on cold regions catchments in comparative studies with mountain catchments.
