Early Career Scientist Event

CORDEX data for climate projections and applications
'Lets focus on the user'

Thursday 17 October - evening (preliminary date)

The CORDEX-ICRC is planning a dedicated early career scientists (ECS) event focussing on climate information and user interaction.

The CORDEX initiative has yielded numerous gains which include datasets that can be used for the understanding and projection of climate change at regional scales. A number of studies have used the datasets, however to respond to the climate change information demands of the increasingly interested users further advancements in studies applying the CORDEX products are desired. Hence, there is a growing need to discuss the suitability of CORDEX products in a wide range of studies and the related prospects and scientific challenges, especially for the future. In addition, it would be important to further consider to enhance ways to effectively interact with users in order to tailor the information to their needs.

The session is expected to be an interactive dialogue where senior experts, as well as ECS share their ideas on the topic. Most probably the event will consist out of an expert presentation on climate information and user interaction, a few short presentations by ECS on the topic highlighting their research and ideas, as well as an interactive Q&A session with the event participants. Afterwards, a networking event is planned with snacks and beverages.

As ECS will play a crucial role in the advancements of the CORDEX community in the upcoming decade, we look forward to sharing knowledge on climate information and user interaction during the ICRC-CORDEX 2019 Early Career Scientists Event.

The Early Career Scientists Event is organised by the CORDEX ICRC-2019 Organising committee in collaboration with the Young Earth System Scientists Community (YESS).
