Workshop Clouds, Convection, and Data

By Invitation Only

Date

Time 9:00am - 5:00pm

Location Abu Dhabi

Meteorologists have access to an ever increasing amount of data, such as observations from the many satellites orbiting the Earth, extensive networks of radiosondes used for weather forecasting around the globe, and dedicated measurement campaigns. A critical challenge is how to best use this vast amount of data to gain new insights on the physical world around us. Such an undertaking requires an understanding of the nature and limitations of these observations, the development of new methods to analyze large amounts of data, and the reassessment of our theories and models in light of the newly gained information. This workshop brings together atmospheric scientists with a broad range of expertise in observations, data analysis and modeling to discuss how to improve our understanding of the role of clouds in the Earth's atmosphere.
