The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has just released the Summary for Policymakers of the report Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability. It issues a dire warning on the urgency of the responses needed to the impacts of a changing climate. For more information, click the heading above.
The “CMIP Community next steps survey” has already received over 200 responses but we want to make sure that a wider range of groups around the world have had time to provide input, and in many cases, in a coordinated way.
Therefore, we are extending the deadline for the completion of the survey to 14th March 2022.
We are in particular very keen to have responses from users of the data, from the academic and policy-making world. This is your chance to...
Building on the success of the Sea Level 2017 Meeting in New York, the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) Grand Challenge on “Regional Sea-Level Change and Coastal Impacts” will hold the Sea Level 2022 meeting on 12-16 July 2022 in Singapore. This is three years after the IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC) report and one year after the publication of the new IPCC WG1 AR6 report. The conference will provide an opportunity to share the present status...
The forum brings together a diverse set of communities who are using or developing scenarios for use in climate change and sustainability analysis to:
- exchange experiences, ideas, and lessons learned;
- identify opportunities for synergies and collaboration;
- reflect on the use of scenarios; and
- identify knowledge gaps for future research.
The Scenarios Forum welcomes abstracts for sessions during the conference. Deadline extended to February 21, 2022
Future Earth, The Earth League, and the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) have begun preparing the 10 New Insights in Climate Science 2022 and are scoping expertise from around the globe for inputs on which key findings should be featured. You are invited to contribute to the 2022 instalment of the 10 New Insights in Climate Science by answering the call for topics form by February 20. This annual series is a major synthesis of essential and recent climate-related research and an important...
Climate models are an important tool for scientists to understand our past climate and provide projections of future change. As such, they are in increasing demand as part of efforts to avert global warming and reduce risks associated with environmental change. To meet this demand, the World Climate Research Programme will open a new international office in the United Kingdom on 1 March 2022 that will coordinate the programme’s Climate Model Intercomparison Project. The new office will be under...
The World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), the World Weather Research Programme (WWRP), and the International Monsoons Project Office (IMPO) cordially invite you to an online event celebrating the launch of the International Monsoons Project Office hosted by the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune, India.
IMPO, a joint effort by WMO and IITM that will coordinate and support global monsoon research activities of WCRP and WWRP, was established at IITM in 2021. To commemorate...
The GEWEX Global Atmospheric System Studies Panel (GASS) will hold its 3rd Pan-GASS Meeting, Understanding and Modeling Atmospheric Processes (UMAP 2022) in Monterey, CA, USA, from 25-29 July 2022. The program will include all aspects and methods of model development from deterministic numerics to stochastic forcing; process modeling to parametrization; observational constraints to diagnostic techniques; and idealized modeling to operational forecasting and climate predictions. The purpose of the...
