  • To help facilitate communication between people interested in regional downscaling of climate models in the Arctic and Antarctic, an email list that anyone can join has been created. It is meant to be a a discussion platform to share ideas, progress updates, ask questions, and more (to know more).

  • DSC 3081The International Conference on Regional Climate – CORDEX 2013, held in Brussels, Belgium 4-7 November, was jointly organized by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), the European Commission (EC) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and was attended by over 500 participants from 97 countries.

    The oral and poster presentations are available on the conference website :

Thanks to the conference sponsors, about 90 participants were supported financially to attend the conference. Remote participants via web streaming and Twitter Questions and Answers provided opportunities for the community at large to attend the conference remotely and to interact with the audience.

  • cordex2013 buildingAround 480 participants from 97 countries took part in this week's International Conference on Regional Climate – Cordex 2013 in Brussels, Belgium. The conference, co-sponsored by the European Commission (EC), WCRP and the WMO/UNEP IPCC, opened with a High-Level session followed by a Dialogue with Stakeholders highlighting the policy-makers and end-users needs. The findings of the IPCC AR5 were presented by Thomas Stocker... (read more)

  • The Centre ESCER at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), Canada, offers 12 MSc and 13 PhD scholarships for diverse research topics as part of a 5-year multi-institutional project titled "Canadian Network for Regional Climate and Weather Processes" let by Prof. Laxmi Sushama at UQAM.Students from any country are invited to apply.

    Our university, a French-speaking institution located at the heart of bilingual Montréal, has successfully graduated many international students. The Centre ESCER has been particularly able to attract excellent students from Latin America, Eastern Europe and French-speaking countries, and provide them an education in French while having access to a fully bilingual working milieu.

    We are seeking 6 Graduate Students interested in carrying research in the following topics:

    1. Regional climate model added value in simulating significant weather events: This project may appeal to students with a good base in synoptic meteorology and wishing to explore the abilities of high-resolution climate models to well represent observed weather phenomena.
    2. Objective optimisation of empirical model parameters: This project may appeal to students interested in understanding the complex role that model parameters play in the achievement of an optimal performance with a climate simulation.
    3. Specific statistical tests for nested-model experiments: Applicants to this project will benefit from a strong background in inferential statistics and interest in adapting existing statistical tools within the context of regional modelling with nested models.

    Enquiries about the proposed research projects should be submitted to Prof. René Laprise (laprise.rene@uqam.ca) and to Dr. Ramón de Elía (de_elia.ramon@ouranos.ca)

    Information about the UQAM graduate programmes can be found at the following web sites:

    Prospective foreign students should be aware that they require a study permit (student visa) to study in Canada and that delays are long to obtain the required immigration documents.
