YESS-YHS-APECS-AGU-WCRP Joint Early Career Researcher workshop

”Water Cycle in a 1.5°C warmer world: interdisciplinary approaches”

AGU Fall Meeting 2019
December 7, 2019, 12.30-18.00

at Hyatt Regency San Francisco Embarcadero

Co-organised by:
Supported by:

& under the auspices of the WCRP Climate Science Week

The joint early career researchers (ECR) workshop “Water Cycle in a 1.5°C warmer world: interdisciplinary approaches’’ aims to bring together students and early career researchers to discuss 1) a joint perspective on the water cycle and governance under climate change, from the fundamental processes to societal impacts, 2) to identify how the science of the upcoming generation of researchers can be integrated in the current WCRP Grand challenges and the new WCRP Strategy, and 3) to explore how the various early career researchers networks can work in a more integrative manner, benefit from each other, and improve their communications channels.

Special emphasis will be put on proposing an ECR’s roadmap to address future of research on water related research in the context of climate change in an interdisciplinary manner. The workshop will serve to identify research topics in which ECRs could contribute to the current and future climate research while exerting their career paths in Earth system science, promoting inter- and cross-disciplinary approaches.
