Call for Papers
The theme for the 2014 AMS Annual Meeting is "Extreme Weather—Climate and the Built Environment: New perspectives, opportunities, and tools". This theme will serve as a catalyst for the 2014 AMS annual meeting by combining scientific inquiry, technological advances, societal implications, and public awareness through the lens of past, current, and future extreme weather and climate events. Following this theme, the 26th Conference on Climate Variability and Change is in particular soliciting papers on topics related to the quantification of past changes, understanding the causes of the changes, and projection of future changes in weather and climate extremes in addition to those on general aspects of climate variability and change, such as:
- Observed and projected changes in extremes (drought, floods, heat waves)
- Statistical techniques for the quantification of climate extremes
- Teleconnections and climate modes and their influence on climate extremes
- Dynamics and predictability of weather and climate extreme events
- Detection and attribution of climate change with a focus on extremes
- Impacts of weather and climate extremes on urban environments.
High latitude climate variability and change
The CVC organizing committee encourages community involvements by submitting proposals to organize specific named sessions to the Conference Chair (see below) by early May 2013. These proposals will be reviewed and approved by the organizing committee based on the content and the availability of time slots for oral presentations.
Additionally the Committee on Climate Variability and Change will conduct a student poster competition for students who enter when they submit their abstracts. Students must be the first author of the poster and presenting their own, original work.
For additional information please contact the program chairpersons, Xuebin Zhang (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) and Aiguo Dai (email: email@example.com).
