Joint CFMIP-GASS 2023 Meeting

Jul 9 - 13, 2023 | Paris, France

The upcoming joint Cloud Feedback Model Intercomparison Project (CFMIP) and Global Atmospheric System Studies (GASS) Meeting will be held on 9–13 July 2023 at Sorbonne University in Paris, France. This joint CFMIP-GASS meeting will focus on themes relevant to Clouds, Convection, Circulation, and Climate Sensitivity, and will strengthen collaborations between ongoing CFMIP and GASS activities.  

The 4-day conference will focus on the following topics, considering process and climate studies, and models and observations across a range of scales: 

  • Convective organization: What controls the organization of shallow and deep convection, and what role does it play in weather and climate
  • Cloud processes: How do micro- to meso-scale processes control cloud phase, precipitation and cloud-radiative effects
  • Clouds-circulation coupling: How do clouds couple to circulations and what role does this coupling play in weather and climate
  • Climate feedbacks and sensitivity: How do clouds respond to external perturbations and what role does it play in climate change

The conference will highlight the complementarity, for answering those questions, of the suite of available models (LES, CRMs, GCMs, global CRMs, conceptual models) and observations (field campaigns, observatories, satellites). 

The conference will consist of oral presentations, poster sessions and breakout group discussions. In order to submit an abstract, please fill out the form at the following link:
