5th Baltic Earth Conference

Dates: 13–17 May 2024
Location: Jūrmala, Latvia
Abstract Submission Deadline: 22 January 2024 extended to 5 February 2024

From 13 – 17 May 2024, the 5th Baltic Earth Conference will be held in Jūrmala near Rīga, Latvia. New challenges for Earth system research in the Baltic Sea region will be presented, while some challenges will be modified and continued. An updated Baltic Earth Science Plan for the years ahead will be presented.

Contributions will be arranged into sessions which are based on the following topics:

  1. Biogeochemistry of the Baltic Sea – Linking observations and modelling
  2. Natural hazards and extreme events
  3. Sea level dynamics, sediment dynamics, coastal processes and impacts on coasts
  4. Human impacts and their interactions
  5. Sustainable management options
  6. Analysing and modeling past and future climate changes
  7. Atmospheric teleconnections affecting the Baltic Sea region
  8. Small scale processes not yet resolved and their impact on the large scale dynamics and patterns
  9. Comparing marginal seas worldwide
  10. Philosophical aspects of Baltic Sea Earth system research

4th ISMC Conference

Dates: 7–11 May 2024
Location: Tianjin, China
Abstract Submission Deadline: 16 February 2024

The 4th International Soil Modeling Consortium (ISMC) Conference aims to integrate and advance the observation, data collection and simulation of soil systems, mainly through the following methods: 

  1. Bringing together experts and scholars who simulate soil processes in various major soil disciplines
  2. Solving descriptions: there are significant scientific gaps in key soil processes and their contribution to different functions and ecosystem services
  3. Promoting the integration of soil modeling with other disciplines (such as climate, land surface processes, ecology, hydrology and other models)
  4. Carrying out comparative studies of soil models at different scales (such as regional to global scales)
  5. Integrating soil and other data platforms to build soil models
  6. Integrating social and environmental factors into soil and ecosystem functions

International workshop on Stratosphere-Troposphere Interactions and Prediction of Monsoon weather EXtremes (STIPMEX)

Dates: 2–7 June 2024 2024
Location: Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune, Maharashtra, India
Abstract Submission Deadline: 15 February 2024

An International workshop on Stratosphere-Troposphere Interactions and Prediction of Monsoon weather EXtremes (STIPMEX) will foster all observational/modelling aspects of the stratosphere-troposphere coupling processes and extreme weather events associated with Asian summer monsoon. The workshop will provide a platform for discussions on dynamical, chemical, radiative and convective processes of the atmosphere during the Asian summer monsoon.

Major Themes:

  1. Atmospheric composition, chemistry and dynamics in the monsoon upper troposphere and lower stratosphere (UTLS) and export of monsoon air to the global stratosphere
  2. Observations in monsoon region with a special focus on recent field campaigns, e.g. StatoClim, ACCLIP, PHILEAS, BTAL
  3. Variability of monsoon active/break spells and related tropospheric-stratospheric processes
  4. Interaction and feedback of the Asian summer monsoon with large scale atmospheric patterns such as Brewer-Dobson Circulation, QBO and ENSO
  5. Response of the Asian summer monsoon to volcanic eruptions (e.g. Hunga Tonga), large wild fires, anthropogenic emissions, and potential Stratospheric Aerosol Injection (SAI) scenarios
  6. The Asian Tropopause Aerosol Layer (ATAL) and impact on stratospheric aerosols; modeling and observational studies
  7. Understanding the mechanism and physical processes behind extreme weather events
  8. Understanding the interactions of extreme weather and large scale Atmospheric processes using model/observations
  9. Challenges in Forecasting extreme weather events with longer lead at higher spatio-temporal scale in operational models

5th Workshop on Physics-Dynamics Coupling in Weather and Climate Models

Dates: 18–20 June 2024
Location: University of Exeter, Exeter, United Kingdom
Abstract Submission Deadline: 5 March 2024

The 5th Workshop on Physics-Dynamics Coupling in Weather and Climate Models (PDC24) is a three-day workshop bringing together scientists who have an interest in discussing and improving process coupling in geophysical modelling.

The PDC24 workshop will provide a forum to share experiences and ideas on the following topics:

  • Conceptual issues in model or process formulation, including conservation and consistency.
  • Discretization of individual processes and process interactions.
  • Solution sensitivity to static or dynamic adaptation in spatial and temporal resolutions.
  • Test strategies, results, and intercomparisons.
  • Optimization, algorithmic efficiency and high-performance computing.
  • Coupling physical models to AI/ML emulators – opportunities and challenges.



4th Workshop on convective organization and precipitation extremes

Dates: 9–12 July 2024 2024
Location: International Centre for Teheoretical Physics (ICTP), Kastler Lecture Hall, Trieste, Italy
Abstract Submission Deadline: 8 April 2024

Following on from the 3rd cloud organisation workshop (WCO3), this workshop aims to bring together all these tools to assess our present understanding of convective organization.


  • Convective self-aggregation in idealized experiments
  • Precipitation extremes associated with organized convection
  • Using idealized models to improve our understanding of aggregation
  • How can we better use observations?
  • Impact of aggregation and organization changing on climate sensitivity
  • Aggregation in global cloud resolving model experiments
