CORDEX Highlights

 Applications are now invited for groups within, and linked to, CORDEX communities across the globe to propose 'Flagship Pilot Studies (FPS)'. The FPS will focus on sub-continental-scale targeted regions, so as to allow a number of capabilities towards addressing key scientific questions and needs of the vulnerability, impact & adaptation community and end users. FPS proposals should be driven by the regional CORDEX communities, although sharing common protocols so as to allow easier exchange of know-how. FPS proposals will be reviewed and endorsed by the CORDEX SAT, together with selected external reviewers, according to the criteria listed in the 'FPS Criteria & Guidelines' document. Further details on the FPS, together with instructions on how to submit your proposal and an application template, can be found here or under the Experiment Guidelines tab of the menu above.

There will be 3 deadlines per year for FPS proposals; 15th February, 15th June and 15th October. The second deadline for applications will be Wednesday 15th June 2016 and the successful proposals from this round will be considered for presentation at ICRC-CORDEX 2016. It is expected that the evaluation process will be completed after summer.

ICRC-CORDEX 2016 Highlights

http://www.icrc-cordex2016.org

Five FPS propsals, out of nine, were selected from the first round of submissions and announced at the last day of the ICRC-CORDEX 2016 conference;

South America: Extreme precipitation events in Southeastern South America: a proposal for a better understanding and modeling

Europe+ Mediterranean; Convective phenomena at high resolution over Europe and the Mediterranean

Europe; Impact of land use changes on climate in Europe across spatial and temporal scales

Mediterranean; Role of the natural and anthropogenic aerosols in the Mediterranean region: past climate variability and future climate sensitivity

Mediterranean; Role of the air-sea coupling and small scale ocean processess on regional climate
