UCP2019 - Abstract Submission open

We are happy to announce the UCP2019 - Understanding Clouds and Precipitation conference!

Conference Scope
Clouds, through their influence on radiative transfer, help determine Earth's energy budget and its susceptibility to perturbations. Clouds and their associated precipitation influence the dynamics of circulation systems, especially in the tropics. Increasingly cloud radiative effects are recognized as an additional mechanism for organizing circulation systems. UCP2019, as part of the Grand Science Challenge on Clouds, Circulation and Climate Sensitivity and the German National Project High-Resolution Clouds and Precipitation for Climate Prediction (HD(CP)²) will bring together leading scientists from the observational and modeling communities working on these topics to present their latest findings, and coordinate future activities to advance understanding of the role of clouds and precipitation in the climate system.

The conference is centered around five focus topics:
1. Looking toward global storm-resolving climate simulations
2. Insights from clouds and precipitation from recent and planned field studies
3. Methodological and technical advances for simulating, computing and observing clouds and precipitation
4. Coupling of aerosols, clouds and precipitation to the large-scale environment and/or circulation systems
5. Progress in understanding and representing unresolved processes in storm-resolving simulations

The abstract submission is open now!
