Ny-Ålesund Atmosphere Flagship open workshop

The Ny-Ålesund Atmosphere Flagship will arrange a workshop during the week 15-19 October 2018 at AWI in Potsdam. The idea is to have a full week devoted to updates from flagship working groups, thematic sessions, sessions on specific themes and sufficient time for individual discussions.

Overview of the Work Groups activities and development since last workshop in

Kjeller 2016. Highlights of the research and data analysis, Identification of important themes for discussion during the workshop and for collaboration across individual WGs

WG1: Clouds, humidity, precipitation (Y. Tobo, HC Hansson)

WG2: Long-term observations and trends in temperature, precipitation, clouds and radiation ()

WG3: Boundary layer meteorology (, A. Viola)

WG4: Interaction of snow, atmosphere, and aerosols (, J.-C. Gallet)

WG5: Atmospheric aerosol ()

WG6: Variability in surface UV irradiance and ozone column ()

WG7: Atmospheric composition ()

WG8: Upper Atmosphere (, )

 

Thematic sessions

On Tuesday and Wednesday morning, we plan to have science talks (10 – 15 min + questions). Talks involving collaborations among different groups are especially welcome.

Preliminary list of themes

  • Aerosol & Clouds
  • Long-term trends
  • Boundary layer meteorology & Atmospheric transport
  • Remote sensing and in-situ observations
  • Atmospheric composition
  • Radiation
  • Upper atmosphere
  • Sources & sinks of gases and aerosols
  • Atmosphere – cryosphere interactions
  • Metrology & Calibration

 

MOSAiC & Ny Ålesund:

On Wednesday afternoon we will focus on contribution and planning of activities at Ny Ålesund during MOSAiC experiment 2019-2020. This section will start with two overview talks from AWI scientists presenting MOSAiC and then Atmospheric part of the MOSAiC.

 

Individual meetings:

On Thursday and Friday there is time allocated for individual meetings based on the interest from individual scientists and groups. These can cover data analysis, paper writing, planning of future activities and campaigns. Current list of meetings is based on input we have received so far and will be modified accordingly if there will be further interest.

Registration

Please sign up at the workshop registration page, and indicate which day you will attend, and also suggestions for Thursday and Friday sessions. It is possible to attend single days or the whole week.

The registration deadline is 15. September 2018

Support

The meeting is free of charge and include coffee breaks, lunches and the workshop common dinner. We have also limited funds available for travel support. If you require travel support please email Christina at and indicate the approximate costs of your travel as soon as possible, and latest 10 August. We will not be able to cover hotel costs. Please also indicate what part of the workshop you would like to attend and your contribution. The flagship steering committee will in the best manner distribute the available funds between the participation in need of this.

Venue

The venue will be at the Albert Einstein Science Park in Potsdam. To get to Potsdam you fly into Berlin. Berlin, Potsdam and Brandenburg established a cooperation of their public transportation system called the Verkehrsverbund Berlin Brandenburg (VBB): www.vbb.de/en/index.html The webpage provides details on the connection from/to the airports Berlin-Tegel (TXL) and Berlin-Schönefeld (SXF), as well as Berlin Central Station. Public transport from the airports to Potsdam requires an ‘ABC-Ticket‘ for 3.40 €. The workshop will take place in the central facilities (Building H) of the Albert Einstein Science Park on the hill Telegrafenberg in Potsdam.

Hotel

The participants need to reserve rooms themselves.
