2nd Pan-GASS meeting
From Monday 26 February 2018
To Friday 02 March 2018
Location Lorne, Victoria, Australia

Understanding and Modelling Atmospheric Processes:
2nd Pan-GASS meeting sponsored by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science
26th February 2018 - 2nd March 2018, Lorne, Victoria, Australia

 

Call for abstracts:
The 2nd Pan-GASS meeting focused on ‘Understanding and Modelling Atmospheric Processes’ aims to bring together NWP and climate scientists, observationalists and modellers to discuss the key issues of atmospheric science and to coordinate efforts to improve weather and climate models. The program will include all aspects and methods of model development from deterministic numerics to stochastic forcing; process modelling to parametrization; observational constraints to diagnostic techniques; idealized modelling to operational forecasting and climate predictions.

The meeting will mainly cover the following themes, but can include other topics related to understanding and modelling the atmosphere:

● Surface drag and momentum transport: orographic drag, convective momentum transport
● Processes relevant for polar prediction: stable boundary layers, mixed-phase clouds
● Shallow and deep convection: stochasticity, scale-awareness, organization, grey zone issues
● Clouds and circulation feedbacks: boundary-layer clouds, CFMIP, cirrus
● Microphysics and aerosol-cloud interactions: microphysical observations, parameterization, process studies on aerosol-cloud interactions
● Radiation: circulation coupling; interaction between radiation and clouds
● Land-atmosphere interactions: Role of land processes (snow, soil moisture, soil temperature, and vegetation) in sub-seasonal to seasonal (S2S) prediction
● Physics-dynamics coupling: numerical methods, scale-separation and grey-zone, thermodynamic consistency
● Next generation model development: the challenge of exascale, dynamical core developments, regional refinement, super-parametrization
● High Impact and Extreme Weather: role of convective scale models; ensembles; relevant challenges for model development

 

On the above topics, we invite you to submit abstracts broadly addressing one of the key ingredients for modelling atmospheric processes:

● Process understanding
● Recent model developments and their impact on weather and climate prediction
● Observational and high resolution constraints for improving models
● Emerging and innovative observing and modelling approaches

Abstract submission is open from 1 September and will close on 31 October 2017.
Abstract submission is free.

Registration for the UMAP meeting will open in mid-September 2017. There will be a fee of 150AUD associated with registration to cover costs. The fee will include all sessions, coffee breaks and lunches for all conference days, a conference ice-breaker, and the conference dinner.
