3RD PAN-GASS Meeting Understanding and Modelling Atmospheric Processes – July 25 – 29, 2022, Monterey, USA

The GEWEX Global Atmospheric System Studies Panel (GASS) will hold its 3rd Pan-GASS Meeting, Understanding and Modeling Atmospheric Processes (UMAP 2022) at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Monterey, CA, USA, from 25-29 July 2022.

UMAP 2022 aims to bring together weather and climate scientists, including both observationalists and modelers, to discuss the key issues of atmospheric science. The program will include all aspects and methods of model development from deterministic numerics to stochastic forcing; process modeling to parametrization; observational constraints to diagnostic techniques; and idealized modeling to operational forecasting and climate predictions. The purpose of the conference is to discuss progress in understanding atmospheric processes and representing them in models, to coordinate current initiatives and make plans for the future.

UMAP 2022 is an in-person meeting. If an in-person meeting is not recommended due to circumstances, UMAP2022 will be postponed to a later date.

Call for Abstracts

UMAP 2022 is articulated around four main themes, outlined below. For each of these themes, we are calling for studies relying on process-oriented diagnostics, modeling, and new observational data, applied to enhance our understanding and modeling capabilities of atmospheric processes and their coupling with the surface. The four main themes are:

  • Organization of shallow and deep convection
  • Surface-atmosphere interactions and the boundary layer
  • Cloud systems and associated processes (microphysics, physics, dynamics, radiation)
  • Towards global km-scale modeling and Digital Twins of the Earth System

Proposals for potential new community projects are particularly welcomed, including proposing a topic and possible approaches OR proposing specific activities in greater detail.
