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 EDT.

Upcoming Webinars: 

Date: September 17, 2020

Presenter: Amy Bower (WHOI)

Talk title: Lagrangian Views of the Pathways of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation

Data Science Working Group 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 EDT, with 25-30min talks and 15min for Q&A from the online audience.

Upcoming Webinars:

Presenter: Matthias Katzfuss (Texas A&M University)

Talk title: Scalable Covariance Approximations for Environmental and Climate Data

Abstract: Dense covariance or kernel matrices arise frequently in geospatial analysis, machine learning, and simulation of systems governed by partial differential equations. Many standard algorithms involving such kernel matrices are computationally infeasible for large datasets. We consider a sparse approximation to the Cholesky factor of the inverse kernel matrix. The approximation can be written in closed form and computed in parallel, and it includes many popular existing approximations as special cases. We discuss extensions and applications to spatial modeling and prediction (i.e., kriging), analysis of computer experiments, statistical emulation of climate models, and data assimilation.

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 EDT.

Upcoming Webinars:

Date: August 6, 2020

Presenter: Monique Messié (MBARI)

Talk title: Ecosystem hotspots in the California Current System and their physical drivers

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 observationalists, on modeler). 

Upcoming Webinars:

Returning this fall


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 EDT.
