Save the date: 17-19 november 2015, Conference on Water and Energy cycles in the tropics, Paris

The aim of the conference is to provide a forum to review and discuss the latest research on the topic of the water and energy cycles with emphasis on tropical regions. The tropical energy cycles are central to the climate, its variability and its future evolution as reflected in the WCRP Grand Challenges being led by both the GEWEX program and the WGCM. The dynamical nature of the tropical water cycle and the control on the energy balance on both the tropical atmospheric dynamics and water cycle is one of the main incentives of the conference. Sessions covering the various aspects of this complex coupled problem are anticipated, including topics on the large scale Hadley/Walker circulation, the ITCZ, ENSO, monsoons, MJO, tropical convection, extreme rain events and droughts, and water and energy budget studies associated with these phenomena. The conference will bring together theoretical, observing (in-situ and from satellites) and modeling perspectives as well as address the evolution of the tropical phenomena under climate change.

 The conference is to be organized by CNES, CNRS, with the support of IPSL, with the sponsorship of GEWEX and will be held from 17 to 19 November 2015 in the Institut d'Océanographie, in the heart of Paris, France.

13-17 oct 2014: The Climate Symposium
Dr Roca was invited to give a talk on "Tropical Rain Bearing Systems and the changing water cycle" at the Climate Symposium that took place last week in Darmstadt, Germany. Dr Roca presentation's was based on the recently published paper in Journal of Climate dealing with the importance of the Mesoscale Convective Systems in the tropical rainfall budget (Roca et al., 2014 ). At the symposium, an updated investigation was shown where for the first time the rainfall data from the Megha-Tropiques team were used. The TAPEER v1.0 data indeed included all the GPM constellation member active during the period of study (summer 2012) including the MADRAS data. These data available available in the coming weeks through the ICARE data center , stay tuned !
Presentations of the Joint CERES-GERB and SCARAB Earth Radiation Budget Workshop
The MT team hosted a joint workshop on Earth Radiation Budget (ERB), with the CERES, GERB and ScaRaB science teams, on 7-10 october 2014 in Toulouse, France. The purpose of this workshop was to bring the CERES, GERB and ScaRaB communities together in order to maximize the exchange of information and ideas on how to make optimal synergistic use of the data from all 3 missions.
You can find the presentations of the workshop on the CERES web site .
