Connecting Models and Observations of the Antarctic Climate System Across Timescales
28-30 September 2022
British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, United Kingdom
This workshop will provide an opportunity to share and discuss advances in the combined use of climate models, observations, and reconstructions across timescales from short-term extreme events to longer-term climatological means. In addition to the physical atmosphere-ocean-ice components of the Antarctic climate system, the scope will extend to considering climate interactions with biological systems.
Specific topics for discussion will include:
- Challenges in evaluating model representation of extreme events.
- Improving process understanding by linking observations and models.
- Best practices for comparing point measurements with gridded datasets.
- Strengths and limitations of reanalysis datasets as tools for model evaluation.
- Applicants are welcome to suggest other topics for discussion.
The aim is for this to be a primarily in-person meeting, but with a hybrid element. There will be support for ECR travel costs and requests for this can be made during registration.
- 27 June 2022 (17:00 UTC) for those wishing to apply for ECR travel grants
- 4 September 2022 (17:00 UTC) for all other applicants
