WWCRP-JNU Training School on Monsoon Variability in Changing Climate

Applications due 15 November

Monsoons are a global phenomenon, and the breadth of socio-economic areas in different regions is greatly influenced by its progress and consequences at regional and local scales. The Jeju National University (JNU) is launching a collaborative framework with the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) on training and education for ocean and climate science, and organizes its first training school to share and promote contemporary issues in the area of monsoon study, particularly incorporating the interest of users (of information to understand and predict monsoon phenomena) of the Asia-Pacific region.

This school will focus on understanding tropical process and scale interactions therein (sub-daily, intraseasonal to interannual), for the Asia-Pacific region. It also aims to share knowledge and discuss scientific challenges for monsoon prediction particularly in intra-seasonal to seasonal scales. Participants will be requested to participate in open dialogues on the “user needs”, as well as the impacts of monsoon variability in changing climate to coastal zones.

The training school is targeted for young scientists and early-career forecasters in the relevant fields. It will take place from 16-21 January 2017.
