The objective of this annual workshop is to present and discuss results from individual Arctic Cordex models, but also from the multi-model intercomparisons. Also, we will discuss the next steps of further joint analyses and individual simulations. The coupled modeling aspect is one particular highlight. Another topic linked to both scientific aims and user-communities are higher-resolution simulations. We aim for a better linkage to the WCRP Grand Challenges on Climate Extremes and Regional Climate Information. Associated with this we want to include stakeholder/user engagement in the discussion.
Monday, Nov 28, 1-6pm
Welcome and introduction (Muralidhar Adakudlu)
Session 1 Evaluation - individual model results
S. Kohnemann, G. Heinemann, D. Bromwich: Extreme Warming in the Kara Sea and Barents Sea during the winter period 2002 to 2012
Justin Glisan, W. Gutowski: Analysis of WRF Extreme Daily Precipitation over Alaska using Self Organizing Maps
Oumarou Nikiema, et al: Dynamical downscaling with the fifth-generation Canadian Regional Climate Model (CRCM5) over CORDEX Arctic domain using the empirical correction of sea-surface conditions.
Session 2 Coupled modeling
John Cassano, et al.: RASM results
Annette Rinke, et al.: HIRHAM-NAOSIM results
Adrian Gustafson: Coupled regional modelling of Arctic climate and vegetation at Lund University
Discussion at the end of the day:
-Is there any commonality in these activities where collaboration can enhance the individual work?
-Is there any potential to apply your result to multiple models in order to investigate the process throughout or estimate the uncertainty?
-What is the status of the individual group’s model and runs?
Tuesday, Nov 29, 9am-6pm
Session 3 Evaluation - multi-model intercomparisons
Heidrun Matthes, et al.: Analysis of temperature extremes
Oliver Gutjahr, Günther Heinemann: Extreme value analysis of 10 m wind speed in the CORDEX Arctic domain
Mirseid Akperov, et al.: Cyclones in the Arctic from regional climate models
Marzena Osuch: Comparison of simulations with observations in Svalbard area
Muralidhar Adakudlu: Assessment of the precipitation skill scores in the regional climate models in the Arctic CORDEX framework.
Session 4 Stakeholder/user engagement
Igor Shkolnik: Future changes in the peak river flow across northern Eurasia based on RCM ensemble simulation
Martin Olesen, Jens H. Christensen: Climate modeling and decision making hand in hand – the Greenlandic perspective
Session 5 Networking, stakeholder/user engagement
Welcome and overview of Arctic-CORDEX (Annette Rinke)
Oscar Landgren: Downscaling at met.no
Andreas Dobler: Convection resolving climate simulations over Svalbard
Stephanie Mayer: Climate services in Norway 2100
Discussions on possible synergies and future opportunities
Wednesday, Nov 30, 10am-1pm
Session 6 Future activities/plans
Here, we aim to discuss our next activities, ideas of analysis, meetings, etc.
Please prepare for these possible questions:
What are ideas of further model intercomparisons or model-observation comparisons or synthesis? Participation in satellite-based multi-model evaluation proposal (Duane Waliser’s mail)? Are there phenomena or processes of common interest? Is anyone interested in runs with higher horizontal resolution? Is there any common interest for one specific smaller region? What about IPCC-AR6 (plans, simulations, domain, schedule)? Opinion about Cordex CORE (Irene Lake’s mail)? Is there any interest to think about an Arctic Cordex FPS? What about links to other related activities (e.g. SIMIP, FAMOS, MOSAiC, stakeholder-related, etc.)? ……

Bergen is generally dark and wet during November. It could be little cold as well. But one could get lucky as well. You never know!
Regarding the transport from the airport, you have the airport bus that gets you to the city center. Just FYI, there are two routes from the airport to the city. Both take almost the same time (about 35 minutes). The bus stop is right at the exit of the arrival gate at the airport. The stop to get down varies depending on your hotel. For 1 & 2, it will be ‘bystasjon’. For 3, 4 and 5, it is ‘festplassen’ (You need to walk for 10 minutes to get to #3). For 6, it is ‘bryggen’ which is also the last stop. The ticket costs about 110 NOK. If the bus timing doesn’t suite you, there are taxis available. It would cost around 500-600 NOK depending on the day and the time of arrival.
