About

The GEWEX Global Atmospheric System Studies Panel (GASS) will hold its 3rd Pan-GASS Meeting, Understanding and Modeling Atmospheric Processes (UMAP 2022), from 17–21 October 2022 in Monterey, CA, USA.

Hosted by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, UMAP 2022 aims to bring together weather and climate scientists, including both observationalists and modelers, to discuss the key issues of atmospheric science. The program will include all aspects and methods of model development from deterministic numerics to stochastic forcing; process modeling to parametrization; observational constraints to diagnostic techniques; and idealized modeling to operational forecasting and climate predictions. The purpose of the conference is to discuss progress in research supporting atmospheric and related model development, coordinate current GASS initiatives, and plan future projects.


Call for Abstracts

UMAP 2022 is articulated around four main themes, outlined below. For each of these themes, we are calling for studies relying on process-oriented diagnostics, modeling, and new observational data, applied to enhance our understanding and modeling capabilities of atmospheric processes and their coupling with the surface. The four main themes are:

  • Convection, precipitation, and organization
  • Surface-atmosphere interactions and the boundary layer
  • Clouds, radiation, aerosols, and their interactions
  • Towards “Digital Twins” of the Earth

Detailed information about the Call for Abstracts can be found in Themes and Sessions.


ECR Competitions

UMAP 2022 has organized three competitions for Early Career Researchers (ECRs). You are deemed an ECR if you are an undergraduate or postgraduate (Masters/PhD) student or a scientist who has received his or her highest degree (BSc, MSc, or PhD) within the past six years. If parental leave fell in this period, up to one year of parental leave time may be added per child, up to a maximum of four years.


DYAMOND Competition

In collaboration with the center of Excellence in Simulation of Weather and Climate in Europe (ESiWACE), the GEWEX GASS panel has organized a data analysis competition to encourage the use of the data set of the DYnamics of the Atmospheric general circulation Modeled On Non-hydrostatic Domains (DYAMOND). The winner will receive travel support.


DOE-ARM Competition

In collaboration with the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the GEWEX GASS panel has organized a competition for ECRs whose studies have used or will use ARM data. The winners will receive travel support.


GEWEX/WCRP Presentation Competition

In collaboration with the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), the GEWEX GASS panel has organized a competition where competitors will be judged on technical content, technical knowledge of the topic, as well as the oral or poster presentation delivery during the conference.

More information on the different competitions and the awards can be found here.
