Excellent September 1-week workshop on tropical precipitation distribution
and climate change, organized by Michela Biasutti and Aiko Voigt at
Columbia! Check out the list of invited speakers
. Travel support available. Abstract deadline in *one month* (June
19th.) Hope to see you there.

Dear colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the workshop
"Monsoons & ITCZ: the annual cycle in the Holocene and the future." The
workshop is organized within the WCRP Grand Challenge on "Clouds,
Circulation and Climate Sensitvity" and will be a catalyst for concerted
efforts to better understand and project changes in tropical rainfall. To
this end, it will bring together scholars versed in paleo climate, theory
of large-scale climate and atmospheric dynamics, observations and
parameterizations of convective processes, and analysis of climate model

The workshop will be held at Columbia University in New York City from
15-18 September 2015. The deadline for abstract submission is 19 June 2015,
the deadline for registration is 14 August 2015. Because space is limited,
we however reserve the right to close registration ahead of the deadline.

The workshop will include invited talks, contributed talks, poster sessions
and ample time for discussions. For a list of invited speakers as well as
detailed informations about abstract submission, registration and local
logistics, please visit the website

The workshop also includes a model-intercomparison project (MIP) to explore
how radiative forcings and continents control the dynamics of tropical
rainfall, in particular its annual cycle, and to study interactions between
oceanic and continental rainfall. The MIP consists of 5 simulations in
aquaplanet and idealized land configuration; more information is available
If you are interested in participating in the MIP please contact us at
MonsoonsITCZs.NYC2014 at gmail.com as soon as possible.

Thanks to the generosity of the National Science Foundation, a limited
number of travel support grants for PhD students and early career
scientists from US universities is available. Please contact us via
MonsoonsITCZs.NYC2014 at gmail.com if you fit these criteria and you need
support for traveling to New York.

In case of questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at
MonsoonsITCZs.NYC2014 at gmail.com. We are looking forward to seeing you in

Best regards,
For the organizing committee, Michela Biasutti and Aiko Voigt
