EGU2020: coupled models polar regions

Konstanze Haubner

Dear Colleagues,

 

We would like to draw your attention to a new EGU2020 session (taking place at the EGU General Assembly 2020, 3-8 May, Vienna, Austria):

 

Developing coupled models in the polar regions - Understanding the feedbacks between land ice-ocean-atmosphere

 

We welcome abstract submission addressing the topics like:

- Coupled systems in the Arctic or Antarctic of at least two of the following: atmosphere, land ice, ocean

- Inclusion of additional components to the coupling scheme, like sub-glacial hydrology, biochemistry, firn, calving and ice bergs

- Feedbacks of coupled models

- Interface development, maintenance and workflows

- Comparisons of online- and offline-coupled models

- ...

 

You find the abstract below and can submit your abstract here: https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2020/session/34958

 

This session is a PICO session (more information: https://egu2020.eu/guidelines/pico_presenter_guidelines.html).

 

We hope to see you at our session,

Konstanze Haubner, Rupert Gladstone, Stefanie Mack, Shuting Yang and Yoshihiro Nakayama

 

  

Abstract:

In recent decades, the climate in the polar regions has undergone dramatic changes. Quantifying the individual contributions of atmosphere, ice and ocean to the observed changes is challenging, since not all processes in each component are fully understood or not yet captured by models. In addition, there are strong feedback mechanism between ice, ocean and atmosphere which limits any attempt to understand the system by studying individual components separately. This session focuses on coupled models to better understand the key processes that control the ice-ocean-atmosphere system and thereby improve future projections of climate change.

The main objective of this session is to address the challenges of including land ice dynamics into Earth System Models. The submitted abstracts should work on coupled models of at least two of the following: atmosphere, land ice, ocean. Studies can also deal with inclusion of additional components to the coupling scheme, like sub-glacial hydrology, biochemistry, firn, calving and ice bergs. We encourage studies addressing any aspect – no matter physical or technical - of coupling. Among others, topics of submitted abstracts could be interface development and maintenance, coupling workflows, aspects of variable exchange (like mass and energy conservation, interpolation), coupled simulation results in the Arctic or Antarctic and comparisons of online- and offline-coupled models.

This session is submitted as a PICO session giving each scientist the opportunity to verbally present their main results briefly followed by more detailed explanations and discussions using interactive screens.
