The GEWEX Convection-Permitting Climate Modeling Meeting will focus on scientific and technical challenges related to convection-permitting climate modeling (horizontal grid spacing ≤4 km).
The Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), in collaboration with the Cloud Feedback Model Intercomparison (CFMIP) is organizing two back-to-back events:
a) Summer School on Aerosol-Cloud Interactions (27 June-1 July)
b) CFMIP/WCRP/ITCP Conference on Cloud Processes, Circulation and Climate Sensitivity (4 July- 7 July)
Each winter, sea ice expands to fill nearly the entire Arctic Ocean basin, reaching its maximum extent in March. Each summer, the ice pack shrinks, reaching its smallest extent in September. The ice that survives at least one summer melt season tends to be thicker and more likely to survive future summers. Since the 1980s, the amount of this perennial ice (sometimes called multiyear) has declined.
