Water In a Changing Climate: The Science
Jointly hosted by the JPL Center for Climate Sciences and the Global Change and Energy Group
June 26-28, 2012
Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, Room 180-101
About the Workshop
The climate is changing and world population is growing. These are increasing demands on the Earth’s water resources and uncertainty on water availability. Advances in water cycle science and the quantification of water cycle components can lead to improved adaptation and mitigation strategies to help address these challenges.
With this in mind, JPL’s Center for Climate Sciences, in collaboration with the lab’s Global Change and Energy Program, is organizing an internal workshop series on the topic of “Water in a Changing Climate”. This workshop is the first in that series, focusing on the topic of Water Cycle Science, and follows on from a colloquium series that has been running from February to May 2012 at JPL. A separate workshop on Water Resource Management and Applications will follow.
The goal of this Water Cycle Science workshop is to:
identify the outstanding questions and challenges in water cycle science;
identify new and integrated measurement and modeling techniques that can help address the most critical water cyclescience questions;
integrate water cycle science across JPL with the broader scientific community, and formulate short- and long-term strategies for developing the needed expertise, technology and resources.
Day 1: June 26 – Introduction and Plenary, and Discussion Sessions on:
Day 2: June 27 – Plenary and Discussion Sessions on:
Integrated Measurement and Modeling Techniques
Day 3: June 28, half day – Discussion: The Way Forward; Craft recommendations
The workshop will be held at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Tuesday through Thursday, June 26-28, 2012. The workshop will be held in Building 180, room 101.
