Sufficient abstracts have been received to begin planning a range of sessions for AntClim21's upcoming June workshop.
The workshop on CMIP6* 21st century projections and predictions for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean will take place at the British Antarctic Survey on 26-28 June 2019. The aim is to help ensure that the Antarctic and Southern Ocean climate science communities make a significant contribution to the IPCC 6th Assessment Report (AR6).
The planned workshop sessions are summarised below, along with a broad outline of the main events of the workshop. Please do consider applying, if you have not already done so, via the Workshop Registration website. Just a few days to go until the 15 March deadline!
Workshop start: mid morning Wednesday 26th June
Workshop dinner (venue TBC): evening Wednesday 26th June
Punting on the river Cam: evening Thursday 27th June
Workshop end: early afternoon Friday 28th June
Below are the sessions planned so far. Additional sessions will be considered if necessary to represent the range of topics in submitted abstracts, so don't worry if your area doesn't clearly match any of the below. The schedule will be confirmed soon after the submission deadline.
- How will the Antarctic and Southern Ocean environment change over the 21st century, from the coming years/decades to the end of the century?
- What will be Antarctica’s future contribution to sea level change?
- How well do the CMIP6 climate models reproduce observed Antarctic and Southern Ocean climate?
- How can we use long-term and paleoclimate climate reconstructions and modelling to inform estimates of future Antarctic climate change?
- Antarctic science and policy
- CMIP6 data access, management and sharing
