Land-Atmosphere Interactions Part I
Location: Room C210 (The Georgia World Congress Center )
Hosts: (Joint between the 28th Conference on Hydrology; and the 26th Conference on Climate Variability and Change )
Chair: Randal D. Koster, NASA/GSFC
CoChair: Yongkang Xue, University of California

"Land-climate interactions play a key role in the climate system. The land’s role in the climate system – its impact on atmospheric means and variability across a broad range of timescales, ranging from hours to centuries, for past, present, and future climates – has been the subject of much recent exploratory research. The meteorological, hydrological, biophysical, biogeochemical, ecosystem processes and the boundary-layer processes that underlie the connections between climate and soil moisture, soil temperature, vegetation, snow, and frozen soil, however, are not yet fully understood. The scarcity of relevant observations, the complexity of the underlying processes and feedbacks, and the wide range of scales involved make the necessary investigations challenging. This session focuses on (1) interfaces between climate, ecosystems, and the land branches of the energy, water, and carbon cycles and the impact of land processes on climate variability and change as well as on extreme events (such as droughts and flooding); (2) dynamic, physical, and biogeochemical mechanisms by which the land surface (e.g., soil moisture and temperature, albedo, snow, frozen soil, vegetation) influences atmospheric processes and climate; (3) predictability associated with land-surface/atmosphere/ocean interaction and land initialization; (4) impacts of land-cover and land use change on climate; (5) land-climate interactions in the context of climate variability and change, and (6) application and analyses of large scale field data and observational networks (such as FLUXNET) for land/atmosphere studies. We welcome papers addressing any of these topics. Please submit your abstract by August 1, 2013 to the AMS 94th Annual Meeting."

"This session will focus on operational and other routinely-run systems for land-hydrology analysis, forecasting and related purposes, and the procedures necessary for their execution. For example, the North American Land Data Assimilation System (NLDAS) consists of land models run in an uncoupled mode using atmospheric forcing to yield surface fluxes and evolving land states, and along with a corresponding 30-year model climatology, provides input for drought monitoring and seasonal hydrological prediction in the US. Please consider submitting topics related to NLDAS and other land data assimilation system efforts."

Cochairs: Ruby Leung, PNNL; Christopher L. Castro, University of Arizona

While climate variability and change are largely governed by global phenomena adaptation to climate phenomena is primarily a regional and local problem. Regional climate models (RCMs) play an important role in downscaling global climate model information to the regional and local scale - at which local stakeholders and decision makers operate. In this session, we solicit talks related to the development and application of RCMs. We welcome talks focusing on diagnosis and evaluation of RCMs with in situ and remote sensing observations, improved physical parameterizations, and the relationship between large-scale climate variability and change with local phenomena. Application of RCMs to hydrological, ecological, agricultural and water resources management problems, including the prediction of hydrologic extremes, are also welcome.

Joint Session 10
Integrated Metrics and Benchmarking For Next Generation Hydro/Land Surface Modeling of the Water Cycle
Location: Room C210 (The Georgia World Congress Center )
Hosts: (Joint between the 28th Conference on Hydrology; and the 22nd Conference on Probability and Statistics in the Atmospheric Sciences )
Chair: Sujay V. Kumar, SAIC at NASA/GSFC
Cochairs: Barbara G. Brown, NCAR; Scott Sellars, Univ. of California

The 28th Conference on Hydrology and the 22nd Conference on Probability and Statistics in the Atmospheric Sciences is proposing a joint session on next generation, integrated metrics for water cycle modeling from a hydrological and land surface modeling perspective. The advancements in theoretical and computational capabilities provide tremendous opportunities but offer the scientific community challenges in the verification of each of the complex components and their interactions. Hydrology can be considered the "system response" to many of the coupled systems being modeled, so a particular interest of this session will be to explore the verification challenges in many hydrologic variables, such as, precipitation, evaportransporation, streamflow, groundwater and soil moisture. In addition, the development of a common, systematic set of measures will improve the "observability" of various model outputs from these systems. This session will focus on highlighting integrated diagnostic, verification and benchmarking techniques and metrics that promote systematic error and uncertainty quantification across complex modeling components, with the end user in mind. The 'Integrated' metrics refer to measures that examine the hydrological models as a "system" rather than a single variable and/or component (e.g. evaluating the water balance components simultaneously) and are needed to verify the new advancement in earth system modeling, such as the coupling of atmosphere, hydrologic, land surface, ocean and cryosphere earth systems. We invite contributions that lead towards the definition and refinement of such standardized measures of model performance for the land surface and hydrologic community.

We are pleased to announce that the American Meteorological Society's annual meeting, held 2-6 February, 2014 in Atlanta, GA, USA, will include a session on Drought Prediction and Applications as part of the 28th Conference on Hydrology and the 26th Conference on Climate Variability and Change. Drought is a multi-faceted phenomenon that challenges our current prediction capabilities. Taking drought prediction and hydrological applications to the next level requires advances in understanding, monitoring, communications and water resources management. Specific topics addressed by presenters might include: • Current prediction science and skill at various lead times; • Innovative management uses of that science; • Case studies illustrating advances in understanding, monitoring and prediction

Host: 28th Conference on Hydrology
Chair: Chris Hain, NOAA-NESDIS Center for Satellite Applications and Research
Cochairs: Jennifer Adam, Washington State University; Michael Hobbins, National Integrated Drought Information System

"Advances in Estimating Evaporation, Evaporative Demand, and Associated Applications Advances in the estimation of evapotranspiration (ET) and atmospheric evaporative demand (Eo) are made across a broad range of scales and techniques, from in-situ observations to remote sensing and modeling. Specific topics for this session might include: • estimating ET from various perspectives: remote sensing platforms, ground-based point observations and parameterizations, plant-based experimentation, and water budgets; • operational ET estimation; • land surface-atmosphere feedbacks; • future remote sensing missions and needs for ET; • Eo as an input to operational LSMs to derive ET, schedule crop irrigation, and as a metric of hydroclimatic trends and variability."
