AMOC Webinar Series

US AMOC and UK RAPID have organized a webinar series to share summaries of the papers published in the AGU special collection with the broad international ocean and climate science community. The webinars are held on the third Thursday of every month @ 11am ET.

Upcoming Webinars: 

Date: May 20, 2021

Presenter: Helen Johnson (University of Oxford)

Talk title: Recent Contributions of Theory to Our Understanding of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation


Data Science Webinar Series

Organized by the Data Science Working Group, the webinar series will feature in experts in Earth science, statistics, and computer science with the specific goal of fostering collaboration across these disciplinary boundaries. The Working Group's general mission is to accelerate the understanding, adoption, and further development of modern data science tools (artificial intelligence, machine learning, and statistics) for the analysis of large-to-massive climate data sets. The webinars will occur bi-weekly @ 3pm ET, with 25-30min talks and 15min for Q&A from the online audience.

Upcoming Webinars: 

Date: April 19, 2021

Presenter: Jakob Runge (German Aerospace Center)

Talk title: Causal inference in Earth system sciences

Abstract: The heart of the scientific enterprise is a rational effort to understand the causes behind the phenomena we observe. In Earth system sciences replicated real experiments as a means to obtain causal knowledge are rarely feasible. However, a rapidly increasing amount of observational and simulated data opens up the use of novel data-driven causal inference methods beyond the commonly adopted correlation techniques. In this talk I will present an overview of causal inference and identify key tasks and major challenges where causal methods have the potential to advance the state-of-the-art in Earth system sciences.

US CLIVAR POS Panel Webinar Series

This series will feature experts, with a focus on early career researchers, who are working on research topics of interest to the US CLIVAR Phenomena, Observations, and Synthesis (POS) Panel. The Panel's mission is to improve understanding of climate variations in the past, present, and future, and to develop syntheses of critical climate parameters while sustaining and improving the global climate observing system. The webinars are held on the first Thursday of the month @ 12pm ET.

Upcoming Webinars:

Date: March 6, 2021

Presenter: Jerome Fiechter (UCSC)

Talk title: Recent advances in marine ecosystem modeling in the California Current


US CLIVAR Process Studies Webinar Series

The Process Studies Webinar Series aims to provide feedback on recent, ongoing, and planned US-funded process studies. This webinar series, hosted by the Process Studies and Model Improvement Panel, will feature two presenters from each process study (one observationalist, one modeler). The webinars are held on the fourth Tuesday of the month @ 2pm ET.

Upcoming Webinars:

Date: April 13, 2021

Process Study: TBD 


US CLIVAR PPAI Panel Webinar Series

This series features experts who are working on research topics of interest to the Predictability, Predictions, and Applications Interface (PPAI) Panel. The Panel's mission is to foster improved practices in the provision, validation and uses of climate information and forecasts through coordinated participation within the US and international climate science and applications communities. The Panel members act as facilitators, assisting in moving climate science forward. The webinars are held on the third Wednesday of the month @ 2pm ET.

Upcoming Webinars:

Date: April 21, 2021

Presenter: Yannick Peings (UC Irvine)

Talk Title: TBD
