I am currently at the opening workshop on climate at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute. We are forming working groups on a variety of issues relevant to the atmospheric sciences. The working groups are composed of applied mathematicians, statisticians, and atmospheric scientists and are open to any grad students or postdocs who are interested. There will be weekly online meetings for each group that will last over the course of the year. We would like to have more atmospheric and climate scientists participate in the groups. 
This SAMSI program will study the interrelations among climate data, climate models and impacts with a view towards projecting future climate change and its impact on earth systems and the human population. A tentative list of Working Groups for this program include:

Remote Sensing: Amy Braverman (JPL) and Jessica Matthews (NCEI/CICS) → REGISTER
Parameter Estimation: Peter Challenor (Exeter) → REGISTER
Data Assimilation: Chris Jones (UNC) and Erik Van Vleck (Kansas) → REGISTER
Data Analytics: Doug Nychka (NCAR) and/or Vipin Kumar (Minnesota) → REGISTER
Climate Prediction: Leonard Smith (London School of Economics) → REGISTER
Extremes: Dan Cooley (Colorado State) and Richard Smith (UNC) → REGISTER
Stochastic Parameterizations: Adam Monahan (Victoria) → REGISTER
Climate and Health: Brian Reich (NCSU) → REGISTER
Food Systems: Hans Kaper (Georgetown) and Mary Lou Zeeman (Bowdoin) → REGISTER
Ice Dynamics: Chris Jones (UNC) , Alberto Carrassi (NERSC), Murali Haran (Penn State) → REGISTER
Detection and Attribution: Dorit Hammerling (NCAR) and Matthias Katzfuss (Texas A&M) → REGISTER
Risk and Coastal Hazards: Brian Blanton (RENCI), Slava Lyubchich (Maryland), Richard Smith (UNC) → REGISTER
Statistical Oceanography: Michael Stein (University of Chicago) and Mikael Kuusela (SAMSI) → REGISTER
Please click on the links to find out more about each group and register. Please email me if you have any questions.

Thank you,
David John Gagne
