CLIVAR Climate Dynamics Panel

The International CLIVAR Climate Dynamics Panel (CDP) plans to organize workshops annually. The first CDP annual workshop will target our understanding of internal and externally forced variability in the climate system, their interaction on decadal timescales and longer, and the effects of variability on extreme events. We invite submissions on the topic with the aim of tackling the following overarching questions:

  • How to isolate the relative contributions of external and internal variability

2nd Climate Observation Conference

The second GCOS Climate Observation Conference (17-19 October 2022, Darmstadt, Germany) will focus on activities and solutions that help to achieve a fully implemented, sustainable, and fit for purpose global observing system for climate. The Conference will also provide the occasion to celebrate GCOS 30th Anniversary and take stock of the progress achieved by the global observing community in the last three decades. The Conference will be in person, even though hybrid options will be made


 Model Hierarchies Workshop 35cm

The second Model Hierarchies workshop will be held 29 August - 1 September 2022, as a 3.5-day in-person (covid permitting) workshop at Stanford, CA (USA). As last time, we solicit talks on the design and use of modeling hierarchies in all aspects of Earth system science, covering the major climate system components -- atmosphere, ocean, land, cryosphere, biosphere -- but this time also underline our interest in exploring the ways in which such models are connected to the downstream uses of


IPCC AR6 WGIII SummaryForPolicymakers

We are delighted that the Summary for Policymakers of the IPCC Working Group III report, Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of climate change was approved on April 4 2022. This is a massive undertaking, incolving 195 member governments of the IPCC, through a virtual approval session that started on March 21. It is the third instalment of the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) and it makes clear that there are options in all sectors to halve emissions by 2030 but that this depends on major shifts
