“Probabalistic prediction of severe weather phenomena”

“Probabalistic prediction of severe weather phenomena”

2017/10/24 - 2017/10/26


The aim of this Workshop is to bring together the participants in the EUMETNET SRNWP EPS Phase II project as well as scientists working in the field to present and discuss the status of the work carried out in the project so far, and enable to define the work during the last year of the project. On one hand, the methods developed in the project for 1) calibration of ensembles and 2) products for probabilistic prediction of thunderstorms and fog will be presented. On the other hand, the first results of the coordinated research tasks on the probabilistic prediction of the same phenomena with respect to soil/surface and PBL perturbations will be shown and discussed.


2017/10/02 - 2017/10/05


The yearly EWGLAM/SRNWP Meeting brings together the developers of European limited area numerical weather prediction (NWP) models and provides an excellent opportunity for the information exchange between the six modelling consortia (ALADIN, COSMO, HIRLAM, LACE, SEECOP, UKMO). The event is organized by the C-SRNWP Programme of EUMETNET and its Expert Teams. During the meeting all aspects of NWP model development (data assimilation, ensemble predication, applications etc..) are tackled in plenary sessions. C-SRNWP Expert Teams are also organizing parallel session where certain topics are discussed in more details.
The meeting will be held at ECWMF headquarters in Reading, UK.

Meteorological Technology World Expo 2017

2017/10/10 - 2017/10/12


Meteorological Technology World Expo is the must-attend event for any company or organisation looking for more accurate and next-generation weather forecasting and climate-change measurement technologies and services. Now in its seventh year, this truly global exhibition attracts around 200 exhibiting companies and 4,000 attendees from over 100 countries.

Meteorological Technology World Expo is a truly international exhibition of the very latest climate, weather and hydrometeorological forecasting, measurement and analysis technologies and service providers for a global community of key decision makers within the aviation industry, shipping companies, marine/port installations, airports, military operations, off-shore exploration companies, wind farm operators, met offices, agriculture operations and research institutes.

7th International Verification Methods Workshop

2017/05/08 - 2017/05/11


Subjects of interest include but are not limited to:

verification of high impact weather and extremes,

properties of verification methods,

use of alternative observations,

observation uncertainty,

verification methods for data sparse areas (e.g. polar regions),

user-oriented verification and estimation of forecast value,

methods for verification of probability and ensemble forecasts,

spatial verification methods, and verification approaches,

software and measures used to evaluate operational predictions, including verification methods used to justify upgrades to operational models.

in keeping with the main theme, papers focused on the adaptation of established methods to different space and time scales, for example subseasonal to seasonal and longer-term forecasts and projections, are particularly welcome.

The science conference will also feature the results of the “Forecast Verification Challenge” for development of a user-oriented verification method, including a keynote presentation by the winning entrant.

2nd European Hail Workshop

2017/04/19 - 2017/04/21


In several regions of Europe, including Switzerland, south-west Germany, and Austria, hail damage has increased substantially in recent years, such that hailstorms have become one of the major atmospheric hazards. The Mobiliar Lab, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), MeteoSwiss, and the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research (OCCR) are jointly organizing a workshop for researchers and professionals to discuss different aspects of hail.
