6th WGNE Workshop on Systematic Errors in Weather and Climate Models, ECMWF, 31 OCT – 4 NOV 2022

We are pleased to announce the call for abstracts for the 6th WGNE Workshop on Systematic Errors in Weather and Climate Models, ECMWF, Reading, 31 October to 4 November 2022. 

For more information see here.

Abstracts are due 31 May 2022.

The workshop brings together a wide range of experts on simulating the Earth System including atmosphere, ocean, waves, land-surface, atmospheric composition, cryosphere, and associated disciplines to advance the understanding of systematic simulation errors at all timescales. A particular emphasis is given to identifying errors in complex coupled systems and to understand their root causes. Progress in diagnosing and addressing systematic errors using a wide range of tools ranging from classical methods to advanced technologies such as data assimilation and machine learning / AI will be documented. The workshop will encourage an active discussion on relative merits of active development of physical models and parametrisations to address systematic errors versus bias correction methods. Please see the website for additional details on the topics of interest and format.

Early career researchers from selected countries will be able to enter a competition for best abstracts for oral presentations. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is pleased to offer funding for travel to ECMWF (UK) to the winners of the competition.
