Dear All,


Jeremy Grantham Lecture on Climate Change

Title: "Understanding of Weather and Climate from Global-to-Regional Scales"

Speaker: Prof. V. Ramaswamy, Director, NOAA/Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, and Professor, Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Program,
Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA

Venue: Divecha Centre for Climate Change (DCCC) Auditorium

Date & Time: Tuesday, 07 November 2017;  3:30 PM

Tea/Cofee: 3:15 PM

ALL ARE WELCOME

Abstract:

The forecasting of extreme weather events is important for protecting life and quality of living. The prediction of climate variations on many time scales is equally important for planning adaptation and mitigation.What is our
capability to understand and predict phenomena over the entire weather-to-climate range - hourly-to-seasonal-to-annual-to-decadal-to-centennial? What are the prospects for understanding weather events superposed on the changing
climate under the influence of both natural and human-influenced factors, and being able to predict on spatial scales from global to regional? Can we develop a unified computational modeling system for seamless predictions and
projections?

Dear All,


Divecha Centre for Climate Change (DCCC) Seminar

Title: "Aerosols and the Climate Change Conundrum: How is the Puzzle Evolving? "

Speaker: Prof. V. Ramaswamy, Director, NOAA/Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, and Professor, Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Program,
Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA

Venue: Centre for Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences (CAOS) Seminar Hall

Date & Time: Monday, 06 November 2017;  3:30 PM

Abstract:

Aerosols pose a central uncertainty in the understanding of climate change, both in the 20th and 21st Century contexts. There continue to be gaps in the knowledge on aerosols from the radiative forcing viewpoint, while vast areas of
inadequacy in our efforts to reduce the uncertainties in aerosol-cloud interactions, especially regionally, affect our knowledge on climate response to radiative, particularly anthropogenic, forcings. We will focus on how the recent
knowledge has expanded, reducing gaps in some areas of the field, but introducing new ones and raising challenging science questions concerning the eclectic mix represented by the different kinds of aerosols. Recent considerations
take the issue beyond the effects of the aerosols on solely temperature changes to other important climate variables from the global to regional scales.

Dear All,

Title: "GFDL’s Climate and Earth System Modeling: From CMIP5 to CMIP6"

Speaker: Prof. V. Ramaswamy, Director, NOAA/Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, and Professor, Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Program,
Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA

Venue: Centre for Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences (CAOS) Seminar Hall

Date & Time: Wednesday, 08 November 2017;  3:30 PM

ALL ARE WELCOME

Abstract:

The World Climate Research Program’s Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) has been a robust framework for conducting comparisons of the world’s models on a common reference frame through positing common model experiments for
the world’s climate modeling centers to perform. Analyses of the CMIP simulations have provided key inputs into the IPCC Assessments (e.g., CMIP5 àIPCC AR5 (2013), and CMIP6, currently ongoing, expected to feed into IPCC AR6 (2021)).
Over the past four years, GFDL has been analyzing the biases and deficiencies in our CMIP5-era models,and developing the next-generation Climate and Earth System Models for the CMIP6-era. The research has comprised a number of
advances in the atmospheric, oceanic, biospheric, cryospheric, and ecosystem components, along with the integrative aspects to capture the realism and wholesomeness of the system. Observations and theoretical developments have
enabled improved representations of processes and interactions in the Earth System, with resulting improvements in the simulation of key climate variables and phenomena. These hold the promise of better estimates of climate, and
biogeochemical, feedbacks and sensitivity, and more insights into the central uncertainties.

Dear All,

A lot has been written about 2017 Bengaluru record rainfall. Time series of daily cumulative rainfall measured in the IISc campus since 2003 is attached. In this dataset, 2005 has the highest annual rain and 2017 is heading towards that.
