THEMES

Extreme Weather and Climate -- with emphasis on linkages across the weather-climate interface.

Simulation of Mesoscale Phenomena -- with emphasis on contemporary models (e.g., leading Chinese model and WRF) and data assimilation and ensemble forecasting systems.

Severe Weather Processes and Predictability -- with emphasis on high impact convective and mesoscale systems

Climate Predictability at Seasonal-to-Interannual Timescales -- with emphasis on dynamical and statistical downscaling.

Long-Term (Decadal and Beyond) Climate Simulation and Projection -- with emphasis on regional and continental scales.

The Symposium is the second in a series. The First Symposium was held at The University of Oklahoma in February 2007.
