28 October 2024 - 30 October 2024 US CLIVAR Micro2Macro Workshop: Origins of Climate Change Uncertainty

The US CLIVAR Micro2Macro workshop will develop the foundation of a new framework to confront and evaluate climate models using observations to improve our process-based understanding and strategically reduce climate projection uncertainty. Workshop themes will include:

  • Identifying key structural model differences that cause cascading uncertainties from microphysical processes to macrophysical cloud properties and climate change
  • Evaluating the scale mismatch between in-situ observations, remotely sensed microphysical properties, and macrophysical climate properties
  • Quantifying and constraining the effects of microphysical process uncertainty on climate projection uncertainty
  • Investigating connections between modeling and observations of aerosol, clouds and precipitation across the globe

The workshop will be held in Laramie, Wyoming from October 28 to 30 and will include a virtual attendance option to allow for broader participation.

Registration and important deadline information to be announced.
