Workshop on Energy transfers in Atmosphere and Ocean

The topic of the conference is the energy cycle in atmosphere and ocean. This includes the interaction of different dynamical regimes such as gravity waves, small-scale turbulence and geostrophic flow, new parameterisations, the formulation of consistent models, but extents also to new numerical methods and extreme climates. The workshop aims to bring together meteorology, physical oceanography, applied mathematics and astrophysics and is sponsored by University of Hamburg.

There is no fee required to attend.



1st WCRP Summer School on Climate Model Development

The World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), Max-Planck-Institute für Meteorologie (MPI-M), and Hans Ertel Centre for Weather Research are pleased to announce the 1st  Summer School on Climate Model Development hosted by the MPI-M, Hamburg, Germany, 15-26 June 2015.

Recommendations for physical ocean fields for CMIP6

The document Sampling the Physical Ocean in CMIP6 Simulations, written by Griffies, Adcroft, Balaji, Danabasoglu, Durack, Gleckler, Gregory, Krasting, McDougall, Stouffer, and Taylor presents recommendations for sampling physical ocean fields for the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project #6 (CMIP6), including its suite of satellite MIPs such as the Ocean Model Intercomparison Project (OMIP). Diagnostics are motivated by presenting salient scientific reasons for their rel
