6th WGNE Workshop on Systematic Errors in Weather and Climate Models

The WCRP Working Group on Numerical Experimentation (WGNE) organises a hybrid workshop on systematic errors in weather and climate models, hosted by the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), in Reading (UK) on 31 October - 4 November 2022. The workshop brings together a wide range of experts on simulating the Earth System including atmosphere, ocean, waves, land-surface, atmospheric composition, cryosphere, and associated disciplines to advance the understanding of systematic simulation errors at all timescales.

Early career researchers from selected countries will be able to enter a competition for best abstracts for oral presentations. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is pleased to offer funding for travel to ECMWF (UK) to the winners of the competition. Please see https://events.ecmwf.int/event/241/page/122-abstract-competition for details.

  • Deadline for abstract submission: 31 May 2022

Tipping Elements, Irreversibility, and Abrupt Change Discussion Series

7 APRIL 16:30 - 18:00 CEST

We invite you to join AIMES, the Earth Commission, Future Earth, and WCRP Safe Landing Climates Lighthouse Activity for an upcoming event in our discussion series aimed at advancing knowledge on tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. To register for the event, please see the event site.

Human and Earth System Interlinkages

A virtual summer school on 'Attribution, causality, and decision-making' in climate variability and change will run from 6-10 June 2022. Topics will include event attribution, trend attribution, philosophical issues in attribution, causality, and decision-making. The summer school is run by the joint Reading-Imperial Ph.D. programme, “Mathematics of Planet Earth,” and is co-sponsored by WCRP, through the My Climate Risk (MCR) Lighthouse Activity, and by the Walker Institute (a planned MCR hub). 

A more detailed syllabus and information on how to apply can be found on the summer school webpage. The deadline for applications is 2 May 2022.

Planet Earth

The WCRP My Climate Risk Lighthouse Activity invites interested researchers to nominate themselves for its Scientific Steering Group (SSG), which is responsible for the overall scientific direction of the activity. To find out more and to apply, please see the open call webpage.
