We would like to invite your contribution to a session proposed for the
Fall Meeting of AGU, 3-7 December, 2012 in San Francisco. The session is
GC008 “Climate 2.0: Usable Science for Society”. The paragraph below
describes the focus of the session:
Climate 2.0: Usable Science for Society
Climate change science is rapidly transitioning from Climate 1.0, classic climate modeling showing that anthropogenic warming is occurring, to Climate 2.0 where the primary question is "How do we adapt to this change and its impact on the coupled human & natural system?" This session explores the models, scenarios, data systems and research that will allow a much larger and more diverse community to tackle societally relevant questions. Topics include: Process and phenomena-based metrics of performance at the global, regional and local scales, theoretical & empirical evaluation of the performance of downscaling methods under non-stationary conditions, and confidence in ensembles of climate projections and probabilistic projections at regional scales.
You can also find the information about the session at this link: <http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2012/session-search/single/climate-2-0-usable-science-for-society/>
The abstracts are due for submission by 8 August, 2012.
