Just a few more days to get your abstracts in to the Model Hierarchies Workshop, to be held at Princeton University, New Jersey, USA. The goal of the workshop is to bring together expertise to build more effective hierarchies of models. This is necessary to readily isolate the observed behaviour of a complex model in a simpler one, and to represent findings from idealized models in more comprehensive general circulation models. For more information see the Model Hierarchies Workshop website.
The 37th Session of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Joint Scientific Committee (JSC) took place from 25 to 27 April 2016 in Geneva, Switzerland. As part of this meeting the JSC approved two new 'Grand Challenges'. These focus on climate-carbon interactions and on climate prediction on time scales from years to decades, both very important to our understanding of how Earth’s climate will change in the coming years. WCRP intends to promote these projects through community-organized workshops, conferences and strategic planning meetings as well as to advocate further for international partnership and coordination. For more see the WMO Pree Release 'The WCRP approves new Grand Challenges' and the JSC-37 Meeting Overview.

A workshop held at the Center for Earth System Research and Sustainability (Universität Hamburg, Germany) reviewed recent progress on salinity and freshwater research and included discussions of problems that must be solved to improve our understanding of future changes in the water cycle. Read the report.
Web streaming will occur for all sessions of the GCOS Science conference and the participants will have the opportunity to view a live web broadcast via the following link: http://www.gcos-science.org/livestream/.
In this Commentary, published today in Nature Climate Change, Paul Durack and co-leaders in the ocean observation community report the hard-won successes of Argo and GO-SHIP, extremely relevant for understanding and monitoring global energy and global water budgets. Chapeau to the ocean observations community! But they also report fragile prospects for future funding of these systems. Recent events in Australia prove their point - loss of support from any key nation will threaten the entire system.
