The Cloud Feedback Model Intercomparison Project (CFMIP) is an international WCRP endorsed research project working to improve assessments of climate change cloud feedbacks through improvements in the evaluation of clouds simulated by climate models and in the understanding of cloud-climate feedback processes. The CFMIP/ICTP international conference will focus on the theme of the WCRP Grand Challenge on Clouds, Circulation and Climate Sensitivity in addition to addressing other ongoing CFMIP activities.
The 4 day conference will contain oral/poster sessions on:
  • Modeling and observational constraints on cloud feedbacks, adjustments and climate sensitivity, including the role of moist convection in cloud feedbacks
  • Cloud/circulation/precipitation coupling and its variability in present and future climates, including hydrological extremes and ITCZ and storm track changes.
  • Process based evaluation of clouds and cloud controlling factors in climate models using fine scale models and observations, including satellite simulators.
  • How will the organization of cloud systems interact with climate change?
  • Coordination of CFMIP and Grand Challenge activities with CMIP6
