Arctic Terrestrial Modelling Workshop - deadline extended

Bernardo Stephan Teufel
Arctic Terrestrial Modelling Workshop

Deadline for abstract submission and registration extended until 31 March 2017

Dates: 14-15 September 2017 (Thu/Fri)

Venue: St Anne's College - University of Oxford

Sponsors: Canadian Network for Regional Climate and Weather Processes
(CNRCWP) – Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada
(NSERC) and Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments-Arctic

Objectives: This workshop will bring together senior and early career
scientists to gain insight into the rapidly changing pan-Arctic land
surface and boundary layer. The workshop will review current
representation of Arctic ecosystem, carbon, water and energy balance
processes in the land model component of Earth System Models,
including land-atmosphere interactions, and the next steps to address
knowledge gaps. The workshop will also focus on developing a
pan-Arctic land model assessment that includes a broader range of
models, and engage the data community to provide new validation
products for the Arctic and sub-Arctic.

Core focus:
*Representation of Arctic terrestrial ecosystems in models
*Role of observations: calibration, validation, assimilation
*Water, nitrogen, carbon, and energy dynamics
*Land-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks across spatial and temporal scales
*Pan-Arctic land model assessment
*Arctic boundary layer processes
*Extreme/disturbance events
*Knowledge gaps

Registration: Fill the online form available at
