Dear colleagues,

Please pass this message on to other potentially interested colleagues.

We would like to invite you to submit abstracts to the session entitled: “Sub-grid parameterizations for the atmosphere and ocean”, at the World Weather Open Science Conference (WWOSC) to be held August 16-21, 2014, in Montreal, Canada. 

Interactions between processes acting on large and small scales are fundamental to both weather and climate. As a consequence, weather and climate models must include realistic representations of these interactions, often through parameterizations. Many of the shortcomings in weather and climate models, ranging from the poor representation of rainfall to the inability to simulate key modes of weather and climate variability, are ascribed to erroneous features in parameterizations. This session aims to review recent progress and to highlight prospects for future developments in parameterizations. Join our keynote speakers on global, regional and ocean modelling, Anton Beljaars (ECMWF), Axel Seifert (DWD) and Bill Large (NCAR) and contribute your science! The session is open to contributions  in any area of parametrisation, including but not limited to, development, stochastic methods, evaluation, and implementation in NWP and climate models.

The deadline for abstracts (maximum 250 word) is 24 February. 

More information on the submission process can be found on:

See you in Montreal.
