2019 GLASS Panel Meeting by invitation only

Aug 6 - 8, 2019 | Boulder, Co, USA

The Global Land/Atmosphere System Study (GLASS) is a volunteer-based research coordination panel focusing on land surface model development and evaluation in three core areas: benchmarking, land-atmosphere coupling and model-data fusion. GLASS encourages and coordinates community-based activities in these areas, covering climate and weather timescales in both offline and coupled modeling environments, across the coupled water, energy and carbon cycles. Activities coordinated in this way, with participants from a wide range of institutions internationally, reduce the potential for duplication in research and act as a catalyst for international collaborations.

This year’s annual GLASS Panel Meeting will review progress of the GLASS working groups and projects, as well as those with similar related research interests. As one of the four panels of the Global Energy and Water Cycle Exchanges (GEWEX), a core program of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP), the GEWEX Science Questions and the WCRP Grand Challenges will be at the heart of these discussions.


The agenda will be made available in June 2019.
If you are scheduled to give a presentation, please upload your file (JPG, PDF, PNG) as soon as possible.
