WCRP Regional Workshop on
Stratosphere-Troposphere Processes and their Role in Climate

April 1 (Mon) - 2 (Tue) in 2013, at Maskawa Hall/North Campus,
April 3 (Wed), at Inamori Hall/Shiran Kaikan,
Kyoto University , Kyoto, Japan

Masato Shiotani and Shigeo Yoden (Kyoto U., Japan)

Sponsored by
WCRP/SPARC and Kyoto University (KAKENHI, GCOE-ARS, GSS)

    SPARC (Stratosphere-troposphere Processes And their Role in Climate) is one of four core projects of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). Founded in 1992, SPARC has coordinated and promoted high-level international research activities in the areas of societal concern such as climate variability and change, ozone, atmospheric chemistry, aerosols, and polar processes.
    This WCRP/SPARC sponsored regional workshop will address the four following subjects:

  1. Global observations and modeling of the stratosphere and troposphere
  2. Tropical and extratropical upper troposphere/lower stratosphere (UTLS) processes
  3. Trends and variability in the stratosphere and troposphere
  4. Climate research in service to society
    The main objective of the workshop is to enrich the exchange of information between communities involved in scientific research of the stratosphere and troposphere interactions and related processes using observations, data analysis, modeling and numerical studies, and theories. The workshop program will consist of three sessions of invited talks and two poster sessions on the first two days, and the special open session ( http://www.ustream. tv/channel/wcrp-sparcwskyoto2013 for Internet broadcasting) for wider research communities and public on the third day. The invited talks and poster sessions will focus on the principal scientific findings and uncertainties in the current knowledge of the indicated subjects, whereas the special session open for public is intended to be a unique opportunity to discuss the roles of climate research in service to society.
    Now we are accepting abstracts for poster presentations. Participation of early career scientists and PhD students is encouraged.
