2022 Cloud Feedback Model Intercomparison Project (CFMIP) Meeting

July 19, 2022 – July 22, 2022 all-day
University of Washington

As in past years, this three and a half day meeting will contain oral and poster sessions on:

  • The assessment of cloud feedbacks, adjustments, and climate sensitivity, with an emphasis on the analyses of CMIP6/CFMIP3 experiments and observations.
  • The role of cloud/radiation/precipitation/circulation coupling in large scale atmosphere/ocean dynamics (e.g. ITCZ, storm tracks, SST patterns) and the planetary energy balance.
  • Process based analyses of cloud structures and cloud controlling processes using GCMs, fine scale models, idealized experiments, and observations.
  • The role of the organization of cloud systems in climate.

This will be an in person meeting on the University of Washington campus. The meeting will NOT include remote-interactive presentations. A registration fee of $250 will be collected in April & May. The registration fee will be partially refunded if the Seattle meeting is canceled. Details will follow in April.

If you would like to attend but are unwilling or unable to attend under current covid related-travel restrictions, you are welcome to submit an abstract but please signify that you will only attend if the meeting is switched to a virtual format or that a colleague (who will attend in person) will present your work.

If the meeting needs to be canceled due to an upsurge in covid or an insufficient number of attendees being able to travel, a fully virtual meeting (likely using Gather Town) will be held at some later date.

If you have any further questions, please contact by email.
