Analysis Platforms for CMIP6 and CORDEX

Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Apply for a virtual workspace where you can directly access computational facilities to analyze CMIP and CORDEX data.

Data near processing capabilities at the CNRS-IPSL, CMCC, DKRZ, and UKRI STFC-JASMIN centers will be made accessible to a broader user community starting 16 September 2020 through the new Trans-national Access (TNA) service.

These processing capabilities support multi-model server-side data analyses through direct access to large data pools. Results from user groups enabled through the virtual workspace access will be disseminated under the project.

Joint Early Career Researcher Workshop

AGU Fall Meeting 2019 | 7 December 2019

Extended Application Deadline: 21 September 2019

Under the auspices of the WCRP Climate Science Week, this workshop will bring together students and early career researchers (ECRs) to:

  1. Discuss a joint perspective on the water cycle and governance under climate change, from the fundamental processes to societal impacts
  2. Identify how the science of the upcoming generation of researchers can be integrated into the current WCRP Grand Challenges and the new WCRP Strategy; and
  3. Explore how the various early career researcher networks can work in a more integrative manner, benefit from each other, and improve their communication channels.

Special emphasis will be placed on proposing an ECR roadmap to address the future of water-related research in the context of climate change in an interdisciplinary manner. The workshop will serve to identify research topics where ECRs can make valuable contributions while furthering their career paths in Earth system science and promoting inter- and cross-disciplinary approaches.

For more information and to apply, please see the workshop web page.

Nominations Open for 2019 Data and Modeling Prizes

  • WCRP/WWRP International Prize for Model Development
  • WCRP/GCOS International Data Prize

WCRP, together with its respective partners WWRP and GCOS, awards two annual prizes for notable achievements in model and data development. For the 2019 edition of both prizes, nominations are now open with a deadline of 30 September 2019. Read the full calls on the WCRP web pages.

Submit to Journal of Climate Special 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.

Paper Published on Early Career Researchers’ Take on Regional Information for Extreme Events

The Young Earth System Scientists (YESS), together with the Young Hydrologic Society (YHS), published a perspective paper on major challenges and opportunities that arise in the study, the understanding of, and the provision of regional information for Climate, Weather and Hydrological (CWH) extreme events (Langendijk et al., 2019; 

This perspective paper emerged from the discussions during the three-day YESS-YHS workshop, held alongside the Global Energy and Water Exchanges (GEWEX) Open Science Conference in Canmore, Canada. The roughly 40 Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from 26 countries discussed three possible ways forward in the field: a stronger interaction between users and scientists, a collaborative modeling approach between the different modeling communities, and possible inclusion of unconventional data sources in scientific studies.

New GEWEX-WGNE Model Comparison Study on Orographic Processes

Read about the new model comparison activity on orographic processes, operating under the framework of GEWEX’s Global Atmospheric System Studies (GASS) Panel and the Working Group on Numerical Experimentation (WGNE), at…/complex-mountains-and-their-effects…. COORDE is based on a study by Annelize van Niekerk, Irina Sandu, and Simon Vesper, and will look at the differences in orographic drag parametrizations across models. If you’d like to participate, contact Annelize van Niekerk or Irina Sandu.

The International Soil Modeling Consortium (ISMC) CROSS panel is searching for participants from the GEWEX community. The CROSS scientific panel develops and evaluates interdisciplinary concepts where healthy soil function plays a crucial role through collaboration with several scientific disciplines, bridging environmental science and socio-cultural approaches. CROSS aims to impact both science and society by innovation through its focus on soil science and its applicability to other fields. CROSS aims to realize this by: 1) acting as an exchange platform with other international panels like AGMIP and GEWEX-SoilWat; 2) defining a common vocabulary between scientific (sub)disciplines in order to develop exchange protocols; 3) establishing the conceptual bases needed to promote exchanges with other disciplines (climate research, hydrology, biology, and geology and the socio-economic sciences); 4) publishing papers in journals relevant to stress the importance of soil modeling for tackling key issues; 5) setting up multi-disciplinary working teams in grant proposals, such as H2020; and 6) advertising the existence of this panel at international meetings. If the CROSS panel and its aims appeal to you and you would like to participate, please email and/or
