Tipping Elements, Irreversibility and Abrupt Change in the Earth System Discussion Series
AIMES, the Earth Commission Working Group 1 Earth and Human Systems Intercomparison Modelling Project (EHSMIP) under the Global Commons Alliance and the Safe Landing Climates Lighthouse Activity of World Climate Research Program (WCRP) are organizing a discussion series that aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. It supports efforts to increase consistency in treatment of tipping elements in the scientific community, develop a research agenda, and design joint experiments and ideas for a Tipping Element Model Intercomparison Project (TipMip). The primary objective is to create an international science platform for the study of climatic, ecological and social tipping elements and their interactions in the Earth system.
Recent Technical Developments in Land Data Assimilation
June 19-21, 2023, 10:00 – 1:00 EDT, Virtual
The goals of the workshop build on the goals of the AIMES Land DA Working Group to: 1) foster knowledge exchange across all groups working in land data assimilation; and 2) build a community of practice and collaboration in land DA, particularly for addressing the technical challenges we face in implementing land DA systems. This workshop also builds on the outcomes of the 1st Land DA workshop in 2021, which is summarized in this review article and meeting report and the 2nd annual workshop in 2022. Learn more about the Land DA Community.

Eastern Regional Dynamic Global Vegetation Modeling Conference
March 24-26, 2023, Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA
The Eastern Regional Dynamic Global Vegetation Modeling Conference (ER-DGVM-C) brings together vegetation/land modelers primarily in the U.S. Eastern region for an annual regional conference to share science and foster collaborations. 2023 marks the inaugural meeting. This collegial, weekend conference is geared toward scientists, postdocs, and students who work with dynamic global vegetation models (DGVMs), particularly models that couple with surface hydrology and the atmosphere models. Scientists who conduct research on field sites, with satellite data, or other process-based models that inform model physics and parameters and provide boundary conditions are also encouraged to participate. Participants from outside the U.S. Eastern region are welcome.
Tipping Points and Understanding Earth Observation Data Needs for a Tipping Element Model Intercomparison Project
October 10-14, 2022
Building on the successful Forum on “Tipping points in the Earth’s Climate” in January of 2021, this Workshop involves Earth Observation experts in the planning of the experimental protocol and in understanding needs and co-design data-use strategies for modelling of tipping elements and their interactions. Discussions during the Workshop are expected to include the broader data requirements of the community working on climate feedbacks and abrupt climate change.
Land Surface Modeling Summit
September 12-14, 2022
The Land Surface Modeling Summit will take place for four days at the University of Oxford, UK. It is the first international modelling meeting to bring together the international land modelling community to discuss development priorities and challenges and ways in which the community can work together to build the next-generation land models needed to address the pressing scientific and societal questions of the 21st century.
