 Arctic Terrestrial Modelling Workshop

 Dates: 14-15 September 2017 (Thu/Fri)

 Venue: St Anne's College - University of Oxford

 Sponsors: Canadian Network for Regional Climate and Weather Processes
 (CNRCWP) – Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada
 (NSERC) and Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments-Arctic

 Objectives: This workshop will bring together senior and early career
 scientists to gain insight into the rapidly changing pan-Arctic land
 surface and boundary layer. The workshop will review current
 representation of Arctic ecosystem, carbon, water and energy balance
 processes in the land model component of Earth System Models,
 including land-atmosphere interactions, and the next steps to address
 knowledge gaps. The workshop will also focus on developing a
 pan-Arctic land model assessment that includes a broader range of
 models, and engage the data community to provide new validation
 products for the Arctic and sub-Arctic.

 Core focus:
 *Representation of Arctic terrestrial ecosystems in models
 *Role of observations: calibration, validation, assimilation
 *Water, nitrogen, carbon, and energy dynamics
 *Land-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks across spatial and temporal scales
 *Pan-Arctic land model assessment
 *Arctic boundary layer processes
 *Extreme/disturbance events
 *Knowledge gaps

 Deadline for abstract submission and registration: 17 February 2017

 Scientific Organizing Committee:
 Laxmi Sushama (UQAM), Stan Wullschleger (ORNL), Cathy Wilson (LANL),
 Eleanor Blyth (NERC), Benjamin Smith (Lund University), David Lawrence
 (NCAR), Gerhard Krinner (CNRS), Patrick Samuelsson (SMHI), Paul Miller
 (Lund University), Joe Melton (ECCC), Charles Miller (JPL)
