2019 GDAP Meeting
(By Invitation Only)

Jan 22 - 24, 2020 | Tucson, AZ, USA

The 2019 GEWEX Data and Analysis Panel (GDAP) meeting will take place in Tucson, Arizona from Wednesday through Friday, 22–24 January 2020. This meeting is hosted by Ali Behrangi at the University of Arizona.

GDAP was organized to bring together theoretical and experimental insights into the radiative interactions and climate feedbacks associated with cloud processes. The central question that governs the GDAP mission is: “how sensitive is the Earth’s climate to changes in radiative and other forcings?” Answering this question will enable improved prediction of transient natural climate variations, such as El Niño, and provide better understanding of the consequences of natural and human-induced climate changes.

This year’s annual GDAP Meeting will review progress of the ongoing GDAP Assessments and Projects. 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.
