Dear colleagues,

We invite you to submit an abstract to our session on "Stochastic 
Parameterisation in Weather and Climate Models" at next year's EGU 
meeting, 27 April to 2 May, Vienna.

Session description: The representation of subgrid scales by stochastic 
processes in state-of-the-art General Circulation Models (GCMs) has 
reached such a level of maturity that stochastic parameterizations are 
now found in operational NWP models and GCMs. Among candidates for 
stochastic representation are backscatter of vorticity from unresolved 
to resolved dynamical scales, subgrid-scale convection, subgrid-scale 
gravity waves in the ocean and/or atmosphere, and boundary-layer mixing. 
We invite members of the numerical modelling community who are 
investigating the implementation of these and other stochastic 
parameterizations in both global and regional models to share their 
experiences and results in this session.

Abstracts may be submitted via the following website:


The abstract submission deadline is 16 January 2014 (or 29 November 2013 
for financial support applications).

Kind regards,

Paul Williams, Petra Friederichs, and Antje Weisheimer
