2021 GLASS Panel Meeting (by invitation only)

Oct 25 - 28, 2021 | Online

The GEWEX/Global Land/Atmosphere System Study (GLASS) panel is a volunteer-based research coordination panel focusing on land model development and evaluation in three core areas: process-oriented exploration, benchmarking (grid-cell to regional to global scales), and global-scale model experimentation and intercomparison. GLASS encourages and coordinates community-based activities in these areas, covering climate and weather timescales in both offline and coupled modelling environments, across the coupled water, energy and carbon cycles. Activities coordinated in this way, with participants from a wide range of international institutions, 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 and hear updates from non-GLASS projects with related research objectives. 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 new GEWEX Science Plan and the WCRP Lighthouse activities will be at the heart of these discussions.

Meeting objetives

  • Share progress of existing projects;
  • Determine if there are weaknesses in the current portfolio of GLASS projects, exposing scientific questions and areas where we should be promoting active coordinated research projects;
  • Discuss structural changes at the World Climate Research Program and determine how GLASS can best contribute to the Lighthouse Activities.

This year’s GLASS Panel meeting will take place online on 25, 27 and 28 October 2021.
