QBO Modelling and Reanalyses Workshop

Deadline for abstracts: 12 Dec 2014

16-18 March 2015, Victoria BC, Canada

The objective of the QBO Modelling and Reanalyses Workshop is to better understand the QBO in observations and reanalyses and to improve the fidelity of tropical stratosphere variability in present-day GCMs. The Workshop will (1) evaluate present-day QBO variability in observations and models, and (2) design joint numerical experiments following an active discussion of modelling groups.

The meeting will be tightly focussed, with invited and contributed science presentations and planned experiment discussions. Please register your interest for the Workshop online by following the link below, although numbers are limited. There is no Workshop fee.

The Workshop is an outflow of the QBOi activity and the QBO and Tropical Variability chapter of the SPARC S-RIP Report. The Workshop is kindly sponsored by the UK National Environmental Research Council and SPARC.
