Special Sessions: Predictability in Urban Areas and Integrated Environmental Prediction

July 5, 2017 in Meetings

Conference on Predictability and Multi-Scale Prediction of High Impact Weather

Special Sessions on Predictability in Urban Areas and Integrated Environmental Prediction

October 9th – 12th 2017 in Landshut, Germany
Last week for abstract submission!
Deadline 7 July 2017

The meeting is co-sponsored by the HIWeather project of the World Weather Research Program (https://www.wmo.int/pages/prog/arep/wwrp/new/high_impact_weather_project.html) and by Waves to Weather, a Collaborative Research Center funded by the German Research Council (www.wavestoweather.de). With a focused agenda and participation limited to 100-200 people, there will be ample opportunities for discussion and networking.

Keynote talks from:  Ulrich Blahak (DWD – German Meteorological Service, Germany),  George Craig (Ludwig-Maximilians University, Germany),  Jimy Dudhia (UCAR, USA), Tilmann Gneiting (Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, Germany), Brian Golding (MetOffice, UK),  Sue Grimmond (University of Reading, UK), Bruce Macpherson (Met Office, UK)

Abstracts are solicited for oral and poster presentations including, but not limited to, the following areas:
* The role of scale interactions and error growth in limiting the predictability of high impact weather
* Impact of diabatic processes on predictability of high impact weather
* Multi-scale prediction systems, including data assimilation strategies for improved high impact weather prediction
* Probabilistic forecasting, including statistical post-processing methods
* Evaluation and improved modeling of cloud and PBL processes
* Prediction of high impact weather in urban areas
* Integrated environmental prediction
* Extreme weather events such as floods, damaging winds or heat waves
