Our workshops are focused research meetings that last from a day to a week. They bring together climate researchers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and invited external collaborators from around the world, and focus on an important research topic within the climate field, such as sea level rise, climate communication, the water cycle or the physics of climate models. If you have a suggestion for a workshop topic, please email us at
