international partners in providing multisensor views of aerosol distributions and aerosol–cloud interactions, NASA plans to launch the ACE mission in 2023, as part of the NASA Earth Science Tier-2 Decadal Survey missions. ACE aims to improve our understanding of aerosol forcing, particularly the highly uncertain aerosol indirect effects, with a multiangle, multispectral polarimeter, a high-spectral-resolution lidar, a dual-frequency (Ka–W bands) Doppler radar, and an ocean ecosystem spectroradiometer. ACE

communities. It was suggested that something analogous to the metrological traceability chain documenting the processing steps taken to produce remote sensing datasets (i.e., by QA4ECV) could be attractive for climate service products, ensuring that no uncertainty information gets lost in the chain while being tailored to the subsequent user needs. Scale group. Depending on the temporal and spatial scale of the study, different sources of uncertainty dominate; for example, random effects might be averaged

have a cooling effect (negative RF) unless they coat soot particles, which exert warming effects. Note that BC particles are normally considered to be the main component of soot particles. Persistent linear contrails produced in the wake of aircraft contribute to net climate warming. Contrail-induced cirrus clouds (AIC) are also expected to affect the solar and terrestrial infrared radiative budget of the atmosphere, but the corresponding radiative forcing estimates remain highly uncertain. The NO

impacts, and applications of AR information to decision-making. Submissions represent work on six continents plus Greenland. The conference was attended by 105 people, which included invited presentations, oral sessions, a poster session, and panels on applications to decision-making, definitions of atmospheric river, and future directions. Breakout sessions discussed AR forecasting, AR Monograph chapters, and ARs in future climates and subseasonal to seasonal prediction. Sessions were organized

senior scientist talks, related to phenomena that drive EA water cycle extremes on time scales from synoptic to climate. Keywords from these 27 talks are presented in a word cloud ( Fig. 1 ). On each day, the workshop had three sections. First, ECRs presented their research, with talks organized by time scale (synoptic, subseasonal-to-seasonal, and climate); second, one or two senior scientists discussed challenges and future opportunities in numerical modeling; finally, there were small

of extreme climate events and a key part of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) program. As Earth's climate changes over the coming years, the likelihood of extreme weather events will change most when natural and anthropogenic effects combine. The International Commission on Dynamical Meteorology (ICDM) of the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS) organized its 2012 international workshop 1 to better

the water-related effects of changes in glacier mass balance and river runoff in western Himalayas. Given the research focus of the GLACINDIA project, the initial focus of the workshop was on glacier-related hydrological information. During stakeholder interactions the resulting discussion covered a much broader range of urgent climate change information needs for the Himalayan region. WORKSHOP FORMAT. In total, 30 stakeholders were invited to participate in the workshop. Among them, the minister

amplitude is a function of the state, which is denoted by the red arrows of different length in Fig. 1g . The noise-induced drift changes the single-well potential of the unforced system ( Fig. 1e ), so that the effective potential including the effects of the multiplicative noise has multiple wells (not shown) and the associated PDF becomes bimodal ( Fig. 1h ). Note that in this example the shift in the mean compared to the unforced PDF ( Fig. 1f ) is caused by the noise, which is referred to as

illustrative examples of how these fields can be valuable for research on atmospheric variability on seasonal to decadal times. Whereas these examples focused on the first-order consistency between seasonal anomalies, the dataset also offers the option to consider higher-order effects (e.g., are there specific seasons when cyclone frequencies are increased in an ocean basin but WCB frequencies are not?). The web interface provides open access to monthly, seasonal, and longer
