GEWEX, the Global Energy and Water Exchanges project, is holding its 8th GEWEX Science Conference from 6-11 May 2018 in Canmore, Alberta, Canada.
The 2018 GEWEX Science Conference is structured around the topic of challenges confronting our ability to understand and predict changes in climate extremes and the availability of freshwater under the complex factors of natural variability, forced climate change due to human activities, and human management practices such as dams, reservoirs, land cover changes, and agricultural management. The Conference will reflect research activities that advance the main themes of the GEWEX project and of the two WCRP Grand Challenges on “Weather and Climate Extremes” and “Water for the Food Baskets of the World.” The full call for papers can be found here.
The 2018 GEWEX Conference welcomes abstracts that are related to the themes mentioned, particularly on the following topics:
Abstracts for both themes of weather and climate extremes and water availability, as well as the themes of the GEWEX Panels described above, are welcome. Poster submissions are encouraged.
