Third International Workshop on High-Resolution and Cloud Modeling - Tropical Cyclones and Climate

Instantaneous outgoing long-wave flux from a NICAM simulation with horizontal resolution of 7 km.

The "Third International Workshop on High-Resolution and Cloud Modeling - Tropical Cyclones and Climate" was held at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu, December 2-4, 2008. This followed the successful "First International Workshop on High-Resolution and Cloud Modeling - Fusion of Satellite Observations and High-Resolution Modeling" held in 2006 at Kusatsu, Japan, and the 2007 "Second International Workshop on High-Resolution and Cloud Modeling - Tropical Convection and the Madden-Julian Oscillation" held in Reading, UK. The workshop was hosted by the International Pacific Research Center (IPRC). The workshop assessed the current status of high-resolution atmospheric models, with a focus on the issue of simulation of tropical cyclones and the connection of tropical cyclones to climate variability and change. Key issues considered were the scale interactions related to tropical cyclone genesis, intensification, structure and intensity changes, and both large-scale control and large-scale impact of tropical cyclones, as well as dynamical downscaling of the impact of global warming on tropical cyclones. Papers related to high-resolution modeling and satellite observations of cloud/mesoscale systems and cloud-aerosol interactions were also presented.
