28 July–2 August 2019 New Science in Air Quality and Climate from Charney to AR6

Ventura, CA, USA

In the 40 years since the Charney Report to the National Academy of Sciences, Atmospheric Chemistry has progressed from isolated and largely disconnected research communities to an interconnected whole. During that time, advances in instrumentation have repeatedly led to revolutionary advances in our understanding. Forty years ago, there were separate disciplines of global atmospheric chemistry (exemplified by the ground-breaking publication of Logan et al 3 years after the Charney Report); local air pollution and air-quality engineering focused on photochemical smog; and climate science. Now we understand the connections between all of these, with the global role of air pollution, especially fine particles, driven by progressive oxidation chemistry associated with global atmospheric chemistry leading directly to the leading climate uncertainties of forcing associated with light scattering by particles and clouds.

3–7 September 2018 EMS Annual Meeting: European Conference for Applied Meteorology and Climatology 2018

Budapest, Hungary

Weather and climate: global change and local hazards

The challenges for meteorology are growing. Citizens, decision-makers, indeed all of society require information on the consequences of our changing climate, and especially on weather and climate hazards that seem to occur more frequently and to have a significant impact on humans, nature, and infrastructure. The essential role of meteorology since the start of operations remains unchanged – the provision to society of reliable forecasts and trustworthy warnings. However, in the 21st century impact predictions and long-term projections of climate change are also needed to support national strategic decisions aimed at saving lives and reducing the costs of natural hazards. All of these challenges place increasing responsibility on scientists and forecasters, as well as on meteorological companies, institutions, and organisations: the whole “weather and climate enterprise”.

Behind these challenges is a need to develop our understanding of the multiple and inter-twined processes of the atmosphere and related environmental components, such as the hydrosphere, the biosphere, the cryosphere, and the anthroposphere. There is a need to innovate tools which facilitate and enable a better service to all sectors of society, from the global through to the national, regional, and local scales. The primary focus of the conference will be to promote and facilitate these essential operational and strategic developments in the European weather and climate enterprise.

The EMS Annual Meeting aims to foster exchange and cross-fertilization of ideas in meteorology and climate science. Among the challenges to be addressed within the EMS2018 theme – Weather and climate: global change and local hazards – are the following.

  • Advancing our understanding of how the earth system works
  • Weather and climate model development
  • Air pollution, weather, and climate; challenges in meteorology, chemistry, and physics
  • Challenges in observation, instrumentation, and monitoring
  • Developing new applications using big data processing
  • Developing new methods for hazard forecasting
  • Implementing impact-based forecasts and warnings at the local level
  • Communicating uncertainty, especially in the case of high-impact weather events
  • Optimising sectoral benefits (e.g. agriculture, energy, transport, urban planning)
  • Preparing for adaption and mitigation of global change impacts on the local scale
  • Learning how best to reach out to, and communicate with, the general public, stakeholders, and the media

Important dates

21–23 February 2018 Pacific Ocean - Pacific Climate Conference

Te Papa National Museum, Wellington

Welcome to Pacific Ocean - Pacific Climate Conference

The second Pacific Climate Change Conference will be held at Te Papa National Museum, Wellington

Climate change is already changing the nature of the weather and the seasonal climate, and raising sea levels across the globe. Left unchecked, climate change presents huge risks for food security, water availability, and habitability. It is the number one problem facing humanity.

How climate change affects the oceans, and the life within the oceans, is central to the future of the planet. Holding the vast majority of the heat in the climate system, and home to a vast array of biodiversity, the global oceans hold the key to the course of climate change for centuries to come.

Nowhere is climate change, and ocean change, a more urgent issue than across the Pacific, home to many low-lying island nations and sensitive to large swings in climate from year to year. The second Pacific Climate Change Conference hosted by  Victoria University of Wellington and SPREP will bring together a broad range of voices on climate change, from the science to the impacts to the policy and public implications. As with the first Conference in 2016, we will include a broad range of sectors, including the arts, science communities, Pacific communities and activists, business sector, faith communities, NGOs, health, and members of the public, to provide a rich exchange of diverse ideas on how to tackle this biggest of problems.

One component of the Conference will be a session devoted to mitigation action under the Paris Agreement on climate change. Representatives of nations across the Pacific will be asked to report on steps being taken at the national level to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to slow the rate of climate change.

7–9 September 2015 The 5th World Sustainability Forum

Centre for Teaching and Research of the University Hospital of Basel

2015 is an important year for all of us. We are taking stock of the accomplishments based on the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were adopted in the year 2000. The results of these efforts are immensely positive. In most countries around the globe, extreme poverty and hunger have been reduced, and infant, child, and maternal mortality have decreased. Girls have better access to primary schooling, progress has been made in slowing the spread of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, access to safe drinking water and sanitation has improved, and more information and knowledge is available to more people via the internet than ever before. However, not all goals have been achieved and some regions have benefitted less, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.

The period marked by the MDGs will end in December 2015. As part of the post-2015 development agenda, the international community is working intensely on a new set of goals, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to be adopted at the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly in the second half of September 2015. The new set of goals, despite their similarity in some aspects, go beyond the MDGs in that (a) the formulation and focus of the goals are more encompassing, explicitly requiring active participation from wealthy and poor nations alike, and that (b) the overall focus is shifting away from ameliorating the situation of poor and underdeveloped regions and societies toward improving the sustainability of global economic and social development while concurrently protecting the environment.

In a knowledge society, research questions, processes and results cannot be disconnected from everyday practices. Politicians, funding bodies and society at large increasingly demand of researchers to propose efficient ways of how to use abstract findings in concrete situations and as a common good. From the very start, implementation strategies should therefore include processes of embedding the research in its social and scientific contexts, recursiveness and negotiation with non-academic actors, and testing the expected impact through ‘real-world’ experiments. How exactly to bring research results to fruition, integrate theory and practice and build truly participative collaborations are key issues of inter- and transdisciplinarity. Keynotes includes experts in the fields of public health, new media, urban planning, sustainability, action research. Please visit our website for further information. Deadline for paper/poster/workshop submissions: 3 May 2010.

12–16 September 2010 15th International Union of Air Pollution Prevention and Environmental Protection Associations' (IUAPPA) World Clean Air Congress

Vancouver, Canada

The 2010 IUAPPA Congress theme of "Achieving Environmental Sustainability in a Resource Hungry World" recognizes the need for holistic management approaches to effectively mitigate potential water, food, energy, and environmental challenges. This Congress will bring together specialists from academia, industry, consulting, environmental advocacy groups, and government to present innovative ways to improve air quality, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and minimize environmental impacts. The program will examine international, national and local-scale issues facing both emerging and developed economies.

Surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty, Vancouver is recognized as one of the world's most livable cities, renowned for its innovative programs and leadership in sustainability, accessibility and inclusivity. Visitors will enjoy multi-cultural dining and entertainment, outdoor adventure, world class shopping, spectacular sights and attractions. We also encourage delegates to take pre- or post- conference day trips to the picturesque Resort Municipality of Whistler or a late season cruise to Alaska.

29 August–3 September 2010 9h International National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR) Climate Summer School: Adaptation and Mitigation, Responses to Climate Change

Grindelwald, Switzerland

The NCCR Climate, Switzerland's centre of excellence in climate and climate impact research, invites young scientists to join leading climate researchers in a scenic southern Swiss Alpine setting for keynote lectures, workshops and poster sessions on the occasion of the 9th NCCR Climate Summer School 2010.

The topics covered at the NCCR Climate Summer School 2010 will include:
- Emission scenarios and the future of the global climate
- Economics of climate change: an overview
- Assessing costs and benefits of climate change
- Adaptation and Mitigation: instruments, strategic aspects and implementation
- Climate policy and international negotiations

The summer school invites young researchers from all fields of climate research. The courses cover a broad spectrum of climate and climate impact research issues and foster cross-disciplinary links. Each topic includes keynote plenary lectures and workshops with in-depth discussion in smaller groups. All summer school participants present a poster of their research and there will be ample opportunity for discussion.

The summer school is open to young researchers (PhD students and Post-Docs) worldwide. Participation is highly competitive and will be limited to a maximum of 70. The registration fee (1'200 CHF) includes half board accommodation, excursion and teaching material. ThinkSwiss offers five grants (covering the registration fee and a part of the travels) for US citizens or for students in the USA. Additionally, a small number of grants will be available for students from developing countries.

11 August–22 September 2010 Mathematical and Statistical Approaches to Climate Modelling and Prediction

Cambridge, United Kingdom

Our best estimates of future climate are based on the use of complex computer models that do not explicitly resolve the wide variety of spatio-temporal scales making up Earth's climate system. The non-linearity of the governing physical processes allows energy transfer between different scales, and many aspects of this complex behaviour can be represented by stochastic models. However, the theoretical basis for so doing is far from complete. Many uncertainties remain in predictions derived from climate models, yet governments are increasingly reliant on model predictions to inform mitigation and adaptation strategies. An overarching aim of climate scientists is to reduce the uncertainty in climate predictions and produce credible assessments of model accuracy. Several workshops will take place during this program.

21–23 June 2010 Air Pollution 2010
