WCRP's Grand Challenge on Clouds, Circulation and Climate Sensitivity is calling for abstracts for its "2nd Meeting on Monsoons and Tropical Rain Belts", to be held from 2-5 July 2018 at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy.

The workshop will bring together expertise on large-scale atmospheric and oceanic dynamics, small scale cloud and precipitation processes, as well as hierarchical climate modeling and observation. It aims to identify opportunities for progress given existing and emerging modelling tools and theoretical frameworks.

The meeting is organized and co-sponsored jointly by the GC-Clouds, ICTP, CLIVAR, EGU and IUGG and preceded by an ICTP Summer School on Climate Dynamics. Application deadline for both is 1 March 2018. For details see the ICTP homepages.
