New! Child care: We are trying to organise child care. In case of just demand we aim to provide child care at the conference site on all days. Please get in contact with Wiebke at the coordination office to signal your needs (or interest) as early as possible.
Clouds, through their influence on radiative transfer, help fix Earth's energy budget and its susceptibility to perturbations. Clouds are also harbingers of precipitation, which influences the dynamics of circulation systems, especially in the tropics. Increasingly cloud radiative effects are recognized as an additional mechanism for organizing circulation systems. UCP2019, as part of the Grand Science Challenge on Clouds, Circulation and Climate Sensitivity will bring together leading scientists from the observational and modeling communities working on these topics to present their latest findings, and coordinate future activities to advance understanding of the role of clouds and precipitation in the climate system.
This conference is a follow-up event of UCP2016.
