16 June 2020 - 19 June 2020 Improvement and Calibration of Clouds in Models

The goal of this workshop is to discuss and share the latest improvements of atmospheric parameterizations for the representation of clouds with a focus on turbulence, convection, cloud, microphysics and radiation. This concerns any type of models: regional or global models with numerical weather prediction or climate applications. Topics will include:

  • Observations and LES for parameterization developments: systematic comparison of SCM to LES on an ensemble of cases; parameterization-oriented diagnostics
  • Recent progresses in cloud, turbulence, convection, microphysics parameterizations
  • Cloud radiative effects: reference computation, cloud overlap and heterogeneity issues, new development in parameterization
  • Strategy of tuning: process-oriented calibration of parameterizations, link with 3D tuning
  • Machine learning for model improvement
  • Future for the representation of clouds in models
22 June 2020 - 26 June 2020 2020 ARM/ASR Joint Meeting
Join your ARM and ASR colleagues at the June 2020 ARM/ASR joint meeting in Rockville, Maryland.

The next Joint Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility/Atmospheric System Research (ASR) Principal Investigators Meeting will take place June 22 to 26, 2020, in Rockville, Maryland, at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville Hotel & Executive Meeting Center. This meeting will bring together more than 300 ARM users, ARM infrastructure members, and ASR researchers to review progress and plan future directions for the ARM user facility and ASR research.

For registration and hotel information, and instructions on submitting poster abstracts and breakout session requests, visit the meeting planning website. Check the website soon for the final agenda.

General meeting sessions will run from the afternoon of Monday, June 22, through mid-afternoon Thursday, June 25. Plenary sessions will include presentations by U.S. Department of Energy program managers, scientific presentations by ARM users and ASR principal investigators on research progress, and invited speakers. Poster sessions will be held both Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons to review research results.

Important deadlines for the ARM/ASR joint meeting:
