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.

Tipping Points and Understanding Earth Observation Data Needs for a Tipping Element Model Intercomparison Project
October 10-14, 2022
More details
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
More details
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.
