EGU2018: The atmospheric water cycle: processes, dynamics and characteristics

Irina Gorodetskaya-2

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to a new session at EGU 2018, which has a cryospheric component:

AS4.3/CL2.05 The atmospheric water cycle: processes, dynamics and characteristics:

The deadline for abstract submission is 10 January 2018, 13CET.

We particularly encourage contributions to link across neighbouring disciplines, such as atmospheric science, climate, paleoclimate, cryosphere, and hydrology, and invite studies focusing on:

* extensive transient features of the atmospheric water cycle, such as Atmospheric Rivers, Cold-Air Outbreaks, warm conveyor belts, tropical moisture exports, precipitation extremes, and the monsoon systems.

* investigating the large-scale drivers of the water cycle features’ variability and change by looking at observations, reanalyses or global/regional climate simulations, in order to improve their predictability

* involving and connecting results from field campaigns (YOPP, MOZAIC, NAWDEX), reanalysis data, indicators of past hydroclimate from climate proxies such as ice cores and stalagmites, and model predictions of the future evolution of the atmospheric water cycle,

* applying methods such as stable isotopes as physical tracers in the water cycle, tagged water tracers, and Lagrangian moisture source diagnostics to identify source-sink relationships and to evaluate model simulations of the water cycle,

* describing the global and regional state of the atmospheric cycle with characteristics such as the recycling ratio, life time of water vapour, and moisture transport distance

With best New Year wishes,

on behalf of the conveners
