GEWEX Convection-Permitting Climate Modeling Workshop II

MMM Scientist Prein Collaborates with RAL Scientist Rasmussen in Sept 2018 Workshop. Abstract Submission Deadline April 30, 2018
NCAR Mesa Lab | Boulder, Colorado

The 2nd GEWEX Convection-Permitting Climate Modeling Workshop will focus on scientific and technical challenges related to convection-permitting climate modeling (horizontal grid spacing ≤4 km). These challenges include the model setup, observational datasets, evaluation techniques, computational resources, model intercomparisons, and the use of convection-permitting simulations in impact research. The 3-day meeting's aim is to foster collaborations and synergies to work on this challenging topic as a community. There will be oral and poster sessions, several invited talks on key topics, and multiple opportunities for discussions and networking.

Abstract Submission Open through April 30, 2018. Participants will be notified in early June.

Key Topics:

  • Convection-permitting modeling and the water cycle
  • Modeling of tropical phenomena
  • Analysis of convection-permitting climate & weather simulations
  • Model setup in convection-permitting simulations
  • Observational datasets and advanced evaluation techniques
  • Convection-permitting modeling across scales (S2S)
