Register for the discussion series on ‘Tipping Elements, Irreversibility, and Abrupt Changes in the Earth System.’ This first session will provide an overview of tipping elements and extreme events in the climate system with talks by Tim Lenton and Sonia Seneviratne followed by a discussion session.
Over the past two years, the OMF initiative has held a series of strategic planning workshops to inform modeling organizations about the initiative and compile input and suggestions. The last of the planning workshops was held at the beginning of June, 2021. Here we summarize the advances made and discuss next steps for OMF.

The Land Use and Climate Change Research Group and the Global Land Ecosystem Modelling Group of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology are seeking two postdoctoral researchers in land-based, climate change mitigation modelling. Application deadline: Friday 9 July 2021.
The Aspen Global Change Institute (AGCI) is currently accepting applications to participate in its upcoming virtual workshop, “Linking Human and Earth System Models for Global Change Analysis”. Held July 19-21, 2021, this workshop will bring together researchers working on a range of strategies to improve the coupled modeling of human and Earth systems.
The joint AIMES/GLP Working Group on Large-scale Behavioural Models of Land Use Change held its second webinar in April 2021 to discuss exciting new advances in social simulation and computational modelling that can support better representation of human behaviour in the land system…

The AIMES Land Data Assimilation Working Group is organizing a virtual kickoff workshop to bring together land DA scientists to highlight a range of DA methods used within the community, discuss challenges facing different modeling communities, and identify strategies for addressing those challenges. The workshop will be held June 14-16, 2021. Learn more and register here.
Hosted by the International Space Science Institute and convened by ESA Climate Office and the Future Earth AIMES project, a workshop held 26-29 January 2021 brought modelers and the remote-sensing community together to discuss how Earth observations can contribute to our understanding of tipping elements in the climate system and help with early warning of change.
Overview: Food and bioenergy demands of a growing global population and societies’ changing lifestyles are increasing the pressures on land and ecosystems. Further pressures arise from the demands on land resources for other ecosystem services, and the variable (often negative) impacts of climate change on plant productivity. These multiple, often seemingly conflicting demands on land and...
