Workshop on Modelling Atmospheric-Oceanic Processes for Weather and Climate Extremes (MAPEX 2019) – Call for Papers

Workshop on Modelling Atmospheric-Oceanic Processes for Weather and Climate Extremes (MAPEX 2019)
28-29 March 2019, New Delhi, India

The workshop will bring together both academic and researchers to facilitate improved understanding of the operational needs and focus of research on the immediate challenges of predicting extreme weather events. Leading experts from India and abroad will deliver talks in the workshop. It is expected that a roadmap to improve predictions of such events will be emerged from these deliberations. The Workshop Themes are as follows:-

  1. Challenges in operational forecasts of extreme weather events
  2. Atmospheric – Oceanic Processes: Mechanisms, drivers and feedbacks leading to extremes
  3. Role of environmental factors on extreme weather events
  4. Observations, diagnostic analysis and case studies for extremes
  5. Assessment of projected changes of extremes in warming climate

The workshop will also provide platform for students and early career researchers from Asia to present their work and interact with the international scientists working in this area. Further information including the call for papers and sponsorship application is attached.
