Registration for Empirical Statistical Downscaling Workshop now open!

Registration for the 3rd CORDEX empirical statistical downscaling (ESD) workshop is now open for interested participants.  CORDEX ESD activities are described here.  The goals of the workshop are to advance ESD activities within CORDEX, develop means of distilling climate information from multiple sources and engage users of climate information.

The workshop will take place from 1st-3rd June 2015 at the University of Cape Town.  The registration form can be found here.

A block of hotel rooms for this workshop has been reserved until 30 April at the Doubletree Upper Eastside Hotel.  Current price is $95 per person per night, breakfast included - hotel website is found here.

2015 Arctic CORDEX Meeting: 26th-28th October

The next Arctic CORDEX meeting will take place at the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, in Potsdam, Germany from 26th-28th October 2015.

This workshop will discuss first results from Arctic CORDEX ensemble simulations. One focus is the presentation and discussion of results from hindcast simulations driven by Era-Interim data. Presentations from both individual models and ensemble results are welcome. Contributions will include results from coupled models as well as scenario simulations. The aim is to discuss planned individual and joint analyses, and the contribution to the Adaptation Actions for a Changing Arctic (AACA) report.

For more information see the meeting website.
