For the final event of H2020 project Blue-Action the consortium has joined forces with a number of partner initiatives and planned a workshop on Multi-annual to Decadal Climate Predictability in the North Atlantic-Arctic Sector, that will take place from 20-22 September 2021. The theme fits with the former edition of this workshop, held in Bergen in 2018, this is why we would like to promote this event as linked to the EU Climate Modelling Cluster.
The organisers are the following projects: EU H2020 Blue-Action, TMS Bjerknes Climate Prediction Unit, JPI Climate-Oceans ROADMAP, and the CLIVAR Atlantic Region Panel, CLIVAR/CliC Northern Oceans Region Panel and CLIVAR Climate Dynamics Panel.
The workshop will be held virtually but we are also aiming for a hybrid format, with physical location in either Bergen (Norway) or Copenhagen (Denmark). A decision on this will be taken in June.
The workshop aims to foster scientific exchanges and collaborations on multi-annual to decadal climate predictability, including research on:
climate predictability from interannual to multi-decadal timescales and our understanding of the associated physical processes and their representation by models,
improvement of dynamical prediction systems, and
increasing need for actionable information dependent on skillful climate predictions.
More detailed information about the workshop can be found in the official flyer and here.
Scientists are encouraged to submit abstracts into one of the sessions listed in the flyer and on the web page. The abstract deadline is on 21 May 2021.
