Call for self-nominations to the committees for the next ICRC-CORDEX conference

Make a difference!

Be part of the scientific or the organizing committee for the next ICRCC-CORDEX conference!

The preparation of the next ICRC-CORDEX conference has just started and to ensure an effective process we need to set up a scientific committee and an overall organizing committee.

The conference will take place during 2023, tentatively late spring/early summer, and will probably be in a hybrid format, possibly featuring regional hubs, with both in-person and remote/on-line participation.

CORDEX aims to develop and provide detailed, regional climate information necessary for vulnerability, impact and adaptation studies at local and regional levels. CORDEX is working to meet the increasing need for reliable regional climate information communicated in a manner enabling effective impact and adaptation planning.

Some of the topics that will be highlighted at the next International Conference on Regional Climate (ICRC)- CORDEX will be extracted from the CORDEX White Papers and Science Plan, including further development of regional climate as well as impacts and applications.

The conference will also provide a platform for scientists and users from all parts of the globe to meet and advance capacity development, training and knowledge exchange as well as to build new and enhance existing co-operations.

The scientific committee will be tasked with proposing the main theme as well as details of the conference program; sessions, important partners/speakers, side events and more – all in close cooperation with the organizing committee.

The organizing committee will be in charge of the administration such as settling venue(s), handling website and registrations, contact with participants and speakers and close cooperation with the scientific committee.

Hope you want to contribute! Please don’t hesitate to contact the International Project Office for CORDEX (IPOC) at ipoc@cordex.org and volunteer for the scientific committee and/or the organizing committee.

Send your self-nomination to ipoc@cordex.org before 31 December 2021.

We invite you to comment on the CORDEX-CMIP6 Variable List!

What’s your opinion on CORDEX-CMIP6 output for atmospheric RCMs? The CORDEX SAT has developed a draft of the CORDEX-CMIP6 Variable list for dynamical downscaling of CMIP6.

Link to the Google form which also include links to the Variable List and an explanation of the Variable List.

Link to the Variable List (Google excel) and Variable List as pdf.

The deadline for comments of the draft is 14 October. If you can’t acces the Google form, please send your comments to ipoc@cordex.org

Podcast on CORDEX Africa

The Climate System Analysis Group (CSAG) at the University of Cape Town a while ago started a podcast called Climate Frontiers.

The third episode, guided by Dr Chris Lennard (former CORDEX SAT-member) and published in July 2021, focused on CORDEX Africa and how it has developed during the last decade.

Many African CORDEX community members, a former CORDEX co-chair, the IPOC director, and others contribute to the podcast with some of their views on building the capacity of African scientists working with climate related issues as well as the benefits for society.
