consider submitting your abstracts to our session "PP017: Global
Monsoons: Improving Predictions for Future Sustainability https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/81360".
AGU will be from 9th to
in San Francisco and the abstract deadline is 31st July
2019. Session details and description are provided at the end of this email for your reference.
Details: Monsoon is a unique feature of Earth’s climate, associated with an annual reversal of surface winds determining the economy and well-being of a significant global population. Seven major monsoonal-systems operate through Eurasia-to-Australia, Africa
and America, relating to heat transport across regions. This session will focus on improving the predictability of the Global monsoon, with a particular focus on Global sustainability. This emerging global monsoon concept in climatology manifests as coupled
interactions, and while the ultimate driver for monsoons is solar forcing, several local factors provide significant feedbacks. The challenge is to understand these complexities and enhance predictability. The paradigm of “thinking Global and looking local”
deserves significant attention for improving predictability on a local scale. The present session will aim to understand how paleo records can allow improvement in the forecast through downscaling. It will also discuss the type and nature of paleo-records
necessary to improve prediction of seasonality, quasi-periodicity, irregularity, and instability.
invited speakers are:
Holbourn (University of Keil, Germany)
Dettman ( University of Arizona, USA)
look forward to seeing you at AGU
