Tipping Elements, Irreversibility and Abrupt Change in the Earth System Discussion Series
Monthly, Virtual
More details

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.

New Directions in Land Data Assimilation
June 13-15 10:00 13:00 EDT
More details

The AIMES Land Data Assimilation Working Group will hold its 2nd annual workshop ‘New Directions in Land Data Assimilation’. The goals of the workshop build on the principles of the working group to foster knowledge exchange across all groups working in land DA and build a community of practice and collaboration in land DA, particularly for addressing the technical challenges we face in implementing DA systems. The themes of this year’s workshop were identified by the land DA community during the 2021 meeting on Tackling Technical Challenges in Land DA and include (1) Machine Learning in Land DA, (2) Observation and Model Uncertainty, (3) Ensemble DA methods, and (4) Crossover in Land DA challenges between Numerical Weather Prediction and Land Surface Modeling communities. The registration call for the workshop will open in April.
