Online Paper-Writing Workshop on
Regional Climate Modeling

November 24-25 & December 8-9, 2020

Objectives of the Workshop:

In face of the need to foster coordination of downscaling initiatives for the South America and Central America and the Caribbean regions (SAM/CAM) and to pursue capacity-building activities in the region, the overall goal of this activity is to promote collaborative activities and networking in the SAM/CAM regions with focus on specific regional climate phenomena. In this context, a virtual workshop on paper-writing is proposed with the aim of enhancing the capacity of PhD students and early career researchers in designing a research topic on regional climate modeling and documenting/writing the scientific results.


  Specifically, the aims of the Workshop are:
  • To coordinate collaborative research based on CORDEX products (statistical and dynamical simulations) with focus on selected regional phenomena.
  • To foster the interaction and discussion between climate modelers and representatives from the user/impact community.
  • To enhance the capacity on documenting scientific research.
Topics:

The workshop builds on specific regional climate phenomena of interest in the CAM/SAM regions, which will be the subject of the coordinated research activities.

The workshop will focus on two main themes, one related to scientific-driven issues and another directed towards the societal relevance of regional modeling to user communities.
 
Tentative topics to be considered:

  • Subtropical westerly jets.
  • Low level jets in the Caribbean and in South America.
  • To enhance the capacity on documenting scientific research.
  • Tropical cyclone activity in Atlantic and East-Pacific Basins
  • Extremes: a comparison of extreme climate indices across the CAM/SAM domains in available CORDEX simulations.
  • Daily precipitation over the Andes for drinking water, irrigation and hydropower: evaluation of simulations and future projections.
  • Applications: Viticulture, health, cities, water resources, and climate change.
Target Audience:
The Workshop is intended for PhD students and early career researchers with a background in regional climate. Participants from SAM/CAM domains actively involved in the regional climate modeling (dynamic or statistical) as well as users from the impact community and stakeholders are encouraged to participate.
Applications:
Considering the characteristics of the workshop, there will be a limited number of participants. In their applications, participants must indicate the particular topic of interest (see list above), provide a motivation statement, a short CV, and a letter of recommendation.
