Meetings and Events

NCAS, via its Centres, Institutes and Affiliated Universities, organises and contributes to a wide range of meetings and events concerned with atmospheric science, throughout the UK.

By holding regular meetings and events, NCAS engages on a regular basis with its key stakeholders: the academic community; operational agencies, namely the Met Office and the Environment Agency; Government departments eg the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), the Department for Trade and Industry (DTI); the Research Councils, the general public, the media and commercial organisations.

The Royal Meteorological Society and National Centre for Atmospheric Science are jointly hosting a 3-day conference at the University of Manchester on 6-8 July 2016. The theme of the conference is High Impact Weather and Climate and, through an integrated approach, aims to bring together academics, practitioners and industry to exchange knowledge and ideas in meteorology, climatology and related fields. The conference will focus on strategic issues relating to High Impact Weather and Climate and will include a mixture of thought provoking plenary sessions, workshops, and oral and poster sessions aiming to stimulate and foster new ideas around observing, predicting and responding to high impact weather in a changing climate.

Conference on Complex Networks and Climate Variability

11-12 April 2015

Mercure Hotel Wien City, Vienna, Austria

Abstract submission deadline: 15 February 2015

The theory of complex networks has now found its way as a promising methodology in the climate research field. Over the last few years, many novel results have appeared on a diverse set of topics. These range from predicting the El Nino/Southern Oscillation, seasonal changes in the monsoon regions, early warning indicators of climate transitions and descriptions of ocean circulation coherence. In addition, many new tools and theoretical results have been generated which facilitate the network analysis and the interpretation of the results as applied to climate (model) data.

During this conference, which is the final event organized by the European Union ITN project "Learning about Interacting Network in Climate" (LINC), we will:

- discuss the progress on climate networks over the last decade

- critically evaluate the results obtained for climate research

- discuss future directions of research in the "networks and climate" research field.
