Sparse Days Meeting 2015 in Saint-Girons III, France

Sparse Days Meeting 2015 in Saint-Girons III, France
June 28th-July 2nd, 2015

 

The annual CERFACS Sparse Days in 2015 was much enhanced by scheduling it within the CIMI semester (http://cimi-semester-hpc.fr) working in collaboration with our colleagues in the CERFACS-IRIT common lab. There were over 100 attendees, half of whom were from outside France and a quarter from the United States. The meeting was held in St Girons, Ariege entitled « Sparse Days in St Girons III » in recognition of two previous conferences that we organized in St Girons in 1994 and 2003.

The meeting was held from Sunday 28th June until Thursday 2nd July and was memorable both for the excellence of the 40 talks and 2 posters as well as the fantastic hospitality of our hosts in St Girons and Ariege. Such was the success of the meeting that we do not feel inclined to wait as long as ten years to repeat the event and venue so watch this space around 2020 for St Girons IV!

Copies of the presentations at the meeting are available from the website.

A fiery wakeup call for climate science

superadmin |  26 February 2020

The extent of the recent wildfires in Australia significantly exceeded the projections of any member of the multi-model CMIP archive.  This highlights how current multi-model ensembles may be under-representing the risks of natural disasters under climate change.  Limited coupled system process representation in most models coupled with a lack of parameter uncertainty exploration means that some risks are not explored by the existing international multi-model framework.  This calls for a reassessment of how to focus climate model development on providing robust risk quantification for those impacts which most directly affect society.
