EMS Annual Meeting: European Conference for Applied Meteorology and Climatology 2018

Event Type Conference
Start-End 03/09/2018 -  07/09/2018
Objective The challenges for meteorology are growing. Citizens, decision-makers, indeed all of society require information on the consequences of our changing climate, and especially on weather and climate hazards that seem to occur more frequently and to have a significant impact on humans, nature, and infrastructure. The essential role of meteorology since the start of operations remains unchanged – the provision to society of reliable forecasts and trustworthy warnings. However, in the 21st century impact predictions and long-term projections of climate change are also needed to support national strategic decisions aimed at saving lives and reducing the costs of natural hazards. All of these challenges place increasing responsibility on scientists and forecasters, as well as on meteorological companies, institutions, and organisations: the whole “weather and climate enterprise”.
Topics The EMS Annual Meeting aims to foster exchange and cross-fertilization of ideas in meteorology and climate science. Among the challenges to be addressed within the EMS2018 theme (Weather and climate: global change and local hazards) are the following:
  • Advancing our understanding of how the earth system works
  • Weather and climate model development
  • Air pollution, weather, and climate; challenges in meteorology, chemistry, and physics
  • Challenges in observation, instrumentation, and monitoring
  • Developing new applications using big data processing
  • Developing new methods for hazard forecasting
  • Implementing impact-based forecasts and warnings at the local level
  • Communicating uncertainty, especially in the case of high-impact weather events
  • Optimising sectoral benefits (e.g. agriculture, energy, transport, urban planning)
  • Preparing for adaption and mitigation of global change impacts on the local scale
  • Learning how best to reach out to, and communicate with, the general public, stakeholders, and the media
