Please keep these photos together with your passport as you might be requested to hand them in when passing security airport control. Thanking you in advance for your kind collaboration. The Organizers
The Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM) and the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP, Trieste, Italy) are jointly organizing an Advanced School on Earth System Modelling (ESM) during (18-27 July), followed by a Workshop on Climate Change & Regional Impacts over South Asia during (28-29 July), at the IITM, Pune, India. The IITM is a Centre of Excellence in basic research pertaining to Tropical Meteorology, Regional and Global Monsoon Systems, Ocean-Atmosphere Coupled Climate System, Physical Meteorology & Oceanography, Atmospheric Chemistry & Science of Climate Change. This Institute is actively involved in modelling, simulation and prediction of global climate and regional monsoons on different time-scales, using fully coupled climate models. Advanced School on Earth System Modelling (18-27 July) The newly developed IITM Earth System Model (IITM ESM) will be the focus of the School and used during the practical sessions. The IITM ESM will contribute climate simulations & projections for the forthcoming Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change Assessment Report 6 (IPCC AR6). The School consists of (a) Forenoon sessions with key lectures delivered by experts on fundamental topics in Climate Science and ESM and (b) Afternoon sessions devoted to Practical training with the IITM ESM. Workshop on Climate Change and Regional Impacts over South Asia (28-29 July 2016) Climate variability and change exert significant influence on society and natural environments, with consequent impacts on agriculture, water-resources, health, terrestrial and marine ecosystems, energy, industry and various sectors. There are major uncertainties in understanding climate change and its impacts at regional levels. The broad objectives of the workshop are to provide an overview of the regional aspects of climate change and impact assessments in the South Asian context, deliberate on gap areas and propose directions for future research work.
