2nd Workshop on Parameterization of Lakes in Numerical Weather Prediction and Climate Modelling
The 2nd Workshop on Parameterization of Lakes in
Numerical Weather Prediction and Climate Modelling
will be arranged at SMHI in
The first Workshop on this subject was held in
The aim of the workshop in Norrköping is to create a forum for environmental researchers related to how lakes are described and parameterised in NWP and climate modelling systems and how lakes interact with the atmosphere. The 2nd Workshop will follow up on subjects raised and discussed at the first Workshop.
External parameters – Focuses on parameters important for description of lake characteristics, e.g. lake depth and lake fraction.
LakeMIP – At the first Workshop an initiative were taken to launch a lake model intercomparison project. Results from LakeMIP are intended for this session as well as other sensitivity studies on lake models.
Processes in fresh-water bodies beyond lake physics – Focuses on processes related to e.g. biochemistry and water quality issues.
Researchers and research students working with these topics are welcome to submit a short abstract for a presentation of 20-30 minutes. In addition to the participants' presentations keynote presentations will be given and room for discussions will be made. No parallel sessions are planned; all presentations will be made at plenary sessions.
The deadline for Workshop registration is June 15, 2010.
The venue for the workshop will be the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) in Norrköping. See how to reach Norrköping.
Block reservations for accommodation have been made at two hotels in Norrköping: Hotel Kneippen (http://www.kneippen.se/) and Princess Hotel (http://www.princesshotel.se/). Each participant is responsible for making his/her actual reservation from the block booked by SMHI by sending an email directly to the hotel with a reference to “SMHI block booking”. Our price for a night in single room is 620 SEK (~62 EUR) at Hotel Kneippen and 745 SEK (~75 EUR) at Princess Hotel.
The deadline for hotel reservation is August 16, 2010.
