This year GCOS organizes its annual Steering Committee meeting from 23 to 26 October, 2018 in Helsinki, FINLAND. In conjunction with the GCOS Steering Committee Meeting, there will be a GCOS Science Day on Monday, 22 October 2018, at the premises of the Finnish Meteorological Institute.

The Science Day aims at informing the regional and national community on activities related to systematic climate observations and their relevance to pressing environmental concerns.

In the past years, the Science Day had convened climate scientists and observation experts from South Africa, South America and China, and facilitated valuable exchange of news and views.

In 2018, the Finnish and regional community is invited to present local actions with regard to climate observations, science and adaptation in the Arctic region. The GCOS Science Day will consist of 4 sessions:

  1. GCOS activities in global and regional context
  2. Arctic now and tomorrow
  3. Science-based information for decision makers
  4. Climate change and observing initiatives

More details on the venue, speakers and talks will be published later.
