1st LIAISE Conference and Determining Evapotranspiration CrossCut Workshop

Dates: 27–29 March 2023
Location: Lleida, Spain
Abstract Submission Deadline: 13 January 2023

The overall goal of the 1st LIAISE Conference and Determining Evapotranspiration (ET) CrossCut Workshop is to bring together researchers specializing in estimating ET experimentally using in-situ observations, via remote sensing data and/or models, from the leaf to the regional scale. The emphasis will be on semi-arid bread-basket regions, notably those with anthropogenically-enhanced surface heterogeneity due to irrigation, crop variability and other activities. A particular focus will be on the domain studied by an international team of researchers during the LIAISE field campaign, which took place in July 2021 in the Ebro basin of the northwestern part of the Iberian Peninsula.

This conference invites contributions covering topics that include:

  • modeling studies aimed at including anthropogenic processes (land surface, meteorological or hydrological) within or including the LIAISE area addressing the main project objectives, studies using observational data from the LIAISE field campaign
  • applications using remote sensing data (from planes, drones or satellites) to estimate irrigation requirements or evapotranspiration over the region
  • contributions from the GEWEX determining EvapoTranspiration (dET) Crosscutting Project.

Special Issue on “Extreme Precipitation and Drought: Mechanisms associated with Atmospheric Moisture Transport”

Guest editors:
Luis Gimeno (University of Vigo), Bin Guan (UCLA/JIFRESSE), Ana María Durán-Quesada (University of Costa Rica), Sergio Vicente-Serrano (CSIC. IPE)

Deadline: 30 September 2022

Extreme precipitation and drought are among the most disruptive natural events that disproportionally impact the livelihood of poor communities and threaten vulnerable ecosystems. Most importantly, the frequency and intensity of these extreme events have projected to increase with unknown regional effects as the planet warms. Therefore, understanding mechanisms driving these extremes and their impacts can provide a more solid ground for the interpretation of their variability and trends, from global to regional scales, enhancing societal capability of adapting to future climate change.

This special issue seeks to publish papers on understanding mechanisms driving extreme precipitation and drought in order to provide a more solid ground for the interpretation of their variability and trends, from global to regional scales, enhancing societal capability of adapting to future climate change. We would be very pleased if you agreed to contribute a Research paper or a Review article on all aspects related to this theme.


Special Issue “Atmospheric Rivers from Modeling and Remote Sensing”

Editor(s):
Dr. Sante Laviola, Dr. Francesco Chiaravalloti, Dr. Annalina Lombardi, Dr. Barbara Tomassetti

Submission deadline: 31 March 2023

This Special Issue aims to improve the knowledge of Atmospheric Rivers (ARs) through the publication of groundbreaking papers that focus on innovative and original approaches to research; an example is an evaluation of the effects of AR-forced rainfall on small–medium-sized hydrological basins. The improvement of detection techniques through satellite and numerical models can better quantify the spatio-temporal distribution of rainfall in drainage networks by evaluating the response of hydrographic basins to local effects due to the severity of an events. 

Submitted articles may address, but are not limited to, the following scientific topics:

  • Impact of ARs on heavy rainfall, heavy snowfall and associated floods over the midlatitude areas.
  • Changes in the hydrological response of complex terrain due to Ars.
  • A special focus on the Mediterranean basin: the features, occurrence, seasonality, and effects of ARs in this complex domain.
  • AR-related storms in the contest of climate change.
  • ARs as a key operational product for nowcasting applications and flood risk management.
