SCAR Open Science Conference Session 4

SCAR Open Science Conference August 3-7, 2020, Hobart, Tasmania

Please consider submitting an abstract to the following session that is of interest to the Antarctic weather and climate community.

Session 4 Polar meteorology: short term climate variability

Conveners: David Bromwich, Steve Colwell, and Adriana Gulisano.


Studies of Antarctic and Southern Ocean atmospheric processes using observations and/or numerical models are encouraged, including dynamics, physics, and chemistry aspects, and extending from the surface to the stratosphere. Timescales are from diurnal to several years. Coupling of the atmosphere with the ocean, sea ice, and ice sheet is also of interest. The impact of large-scale modes of variability such as the Southern Annular Mode and the El NiƱo-Southern Oscillation are welcome topics. Examples of envisaged investigations include katabatic and barrier winds, cyclones and fronts, numerical weather prediction, drifting snow occurrence and impacts, etc. Presentations based on tools (observational, statistical, numerical, etc.) are welcome if they are applied to investigate particular atmospheric phenomena.

Abstracts are DUE Friday, March 6, 2020. 5pm AEST.

In the U.S. submission should be completed before the end of Thursday March 5, 2020, EST. Coming up next week.
