This workshop is intended to facilitate the more rapid advance of development of coupled data assimilation methodologies to improve weather and climate predictions and reanalyses. The workshop will cover methods for coupling of data assimilation methodologies between the atmosphere, ocean, land-surface, sea-ice, aerosols, atmospheric chemistry, and more, including weak and strong coupling. The deadline for abstracts is 11 September 2016. For more see the workshop website.

This School provides an overview of state of the art techniques and methods for detecting and monitoring the volcanic and convective clouds. It teaches students about the different instruments and platforms that are best at detecting such clouds and discusses new missions planned for solving the main issues in this research field. The registration deadline is the 31 August 2016. For more details see the training school website.
28 November - 1 December, 2016
The 2016 TAV Conference will include sessions on: 1) Oceanic and atmospheric processes affecting physical-biogeochemical interaction and climate; 2) Mechanisms and simulation of tropical Atlantic climate variability; and 3) Towards realizing socio-economic benefits of climate prediction in the Tropical Atlantic for marine ecosystems, fisheries, and continental climate. Abstract submission closes 1 September 2016. For more details see the conference website.

Find out all about CORDEX!
CORDEX builds on a foundation of previous downscaling intercomparison projects to provide a common framework for downscaling activities around the world. Discussion paper now available in Geoscientific Model Developement Discussions (OPEN ACCESS).
The seventh SPARC science report on 'The Mystery of Carbon Tetrachloride' is now available! Find the full report here.
The report helps answer policy-relevant questions related to the global budget of carbon tetrachloride, an important ozone-depleting substance; closing the gap between emissions reported to UNEP's ozone secretariat and those estimated from atmospheric observations.
