Land-Atmosphere Interactions Part I

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."

Town Hall Meeting: #WeatherReady: Weather Warnings at the Heart of the Conversation
Location: Georgia Ballroom 2 (The Georgia World Congress Center )

Everyone talks about the weather, but what does everyone do about it? Hear diverse perspectives from government, the private sector, and international agencies on how they cut through the babble to ensure weather warnings are trusted and acted upon when severe weather threatens. For additional information, please contact Douglas Hilderbrand (douglas.hilderbrand@noaa.gov) or Christopher Vaccaro (christopher.vaccaro@noaa.gov).

Town Hall Meeting: Climate Information Needs for Financial Decision-Making
Location: Room C203 (The Georgia World Congress Center )
Host: Town Hall Meetings

This Town Hall will focus on the Policy Program’s recent study on climate information needs for financial decision-making. The study examined four key topics: 1) the conditions and criteria that influence returns on investment of major financial decisions, 2) the climate sensitivity of financial decisions, particularly in the United States, 3) climate information needs of financial decision-makers, and 4) potential new mechanisms to promote collaboration between scientists and financial decision-makers. Better understanding of these four topics will help improve the capacity in the United States for near-term financial decision-making based on the best available knowledge and information relating to the climate system. As a result, the study will enable leaders in business and government to make well-informed choices that help maximize long-term economic growth and social well-being in the United States. For additional information, please contact Paul Higgins (phiggins@ametsoc.org)

Town Hall Meeting: NOAA’s Weather Modeling Strategy
Location: Room C201 (The Georgia World Congress Center )

In the wake of recent disasters, such as Hurricane Sandy, there is a new community awareness of the operational high-performance computing needs of NOAA. In response, NOAA is investing substantial additional resources to increase its operational computing capacity. The target of a 2 petaflop machine in 2018 represents a 10-fold increase from computing resources in 2013. These resources afford a rapid and radical evolution of the operational NOAA modeling suite over the next five years. However, to make it the best end-to-end system necessitates an unprecedented coordination among the modeling, forecaster, academic, and private sector user-communities. In an effort to foster this coordination, the AMS Board for Operational Government Meteorologists and the AMS Weather Analysis and Forecasting Committee are sponsoring a Town Hall Meeting on NOAA’s strategy for operational numerical weather prediction. In particular, the Town Hall will discuss NOAA’s strategy for applying these high performance computing resources to improve operational weather forecasting. NOAA officials will be present to explain the strategy and discuss current plans for the modeling system evolution. Special emphasis will be placed on plans to implement a global 10 km forecast system and the implementation of a CONUS storm scale ensemble. Representatives from the forecaster, academic, and private sector community will be present to discuss the opportunities and challenges the rapid evolution of the model suite presents.

Town Hall Meeting: Planning for the future: Extreme weather, changing climate, and energy sustainability in large urban areas
Location: Room C114 (The Georgia World Congress Center )
Panelists: Norrie McKenzie, Georgia Power; Marilyn Brown, GA Tech; Andrew Odins, NRG Energy Inc.

In 2012 there were 11 billion dollar weather and climate disasters in the United States according to the NCDC. Several of these disasters directly impacted major cities and urban areas. The high population density and increasing growth of large metropolitan areas makes stability and sustainability of energy of critical importance in the urban environment. An important factor in the stability and sustainability of energy in the urban environment is weather. Temperature extremes magnify energy demands in heavily populated areas, while storms like post-tropical storm Sandy present risks to the distribution grid. Extreme weather in a small geographic region can have large consequences for urban environments in terms of reliability and emergency management response . Cities are a great opportunity to increase weather dependent renewable energy production for reliability and for reduction of greenhouse gases. The climate is changing and weather extremes seem to be occurring more frequently. With this in mind, this town hall aims to discuss where do we go from here? This town hall meeting will be co-sponsored by the AMS Energy Committee and the AMS Board on the Urban Environment. Some of the possible questions for discussion are: What are the meteorological and climate challenges of integrating more renewable energy generation in urban areas? What are the evolving policies related to energy in the urban environment and are the aims of these policies realistic? What research is needed by the meteorological and climate communities in order to promote energy sustainability , resiliency, and security in the urban environment? What should urban areas be doing to adapt and mitigate the effects of extreme weather hazards and climate change? Who should be leading the charge to make such changes – ie: private entities, local, state, federal governments, a collaboration?

Town Hall Meeting: Adapting to the New Normal—Building, Sustaining, and Improving our Weather and Climate Hazard Resilience
Location: Room C111 (The Georgia World Congress Center )

Our operating environment has changed. Globalization, technological development, and the changing roles of individuals in society have reshaped the context within which we operate. At the same time, we are seeing more extreme weather, increases in the costs of natural disasters that are among the highest in the world, and greater disruption in disaster patterns. The growing interconnectedness of our world, technological interdependencies, economic and physical vulnerabilities, and changes in the climate underscore the need for improved and more active management of the risk environment nationally. As a Nation we often lack a full understanding of the true risk exposure over time from our decisions, be they land use, development, or engineering in nature – and more importantly, who bears the cost of that exposure. Is climate changing, and if so, in what ways? Is changing climate driving an increase in severe events? What are the implications of changing climate and severe events to our national security? What are our vulnerabilities? How do we prepare for, or avoid, the impacts of climate change? Please join us as we welcome two pre-eminent speakers: FEMA Administrator W. Craig Fugate and Nobel Laureate Donald Wuebbles. Professor Wuebbles will first present the principal findings of the recent major international IPCC assessment report, of which he is a Coordinating Lead Author. Special guest speaker Administrator Fugate will then present a strategic vision to prepare for the impacts of climate change. Also to be shown is the Ultra-Fine resolution simulation of the evolution of Hurricane Sandy as it approached and made landfall, with catastrophic impacts over the northeastern United States created by a team of researchers from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and Cray Inc. W. Craig Fugate was confirmed by the US Senate and began his service as Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in May 2009. Under Fugate's leadership, emergency management has been promoted as a community and shared responsibility. FEMA has fostered resiliency, a community-oriented approach to emergency management to build sustainable and resilient communities. FEMA has instituted a permanent catastrophic planning effort to build the nation’s capacity to stabilize a catastrophic event within 72 hours. FEMA is implementing a National Preparedness System (PPD-8) to build unity of effort to address the nation's most significant risks. FEMA is supporting state and local governments with efforts to prepare for the impacts of climate change through "adaptation," which is planning for the changes that are occurring and expected to occur. Prior to coming to FEMA, Fugate served as Director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM). Fugate served as the Florida State Coordinating Officer for 11 Presidentially-declared disasters including the management of $4.5 billion in federal disaster assistance. In 2004, Fugate managed the largest federal disaster response in Florida history as four major hurricanes impacted the state in quick succession; Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne. In 2005, Florida was again impacted by major disasters when three more hurricanes made landfall in the state; Dennis, Katrina and Wilma. The impact from Hurricane Katrina was felt more strongly in the gulf coast states to the west but under the Emergency Management Assistance Compact or EMAC, Florida launched the largest mutual aid response in its history in support of those states. Fugate began his emergency management career as a volunteer firefighter, paramedic, and a Lieutenant with the Alachua County Fire Rescue. Eventually, he moved from exclusive fire rescue operations to serving as the Emergency Manager for Alachua County in Gainesville, Florida. He spent a decade in that role until May 1997 when he was appointed Bureau Chief for Preparedness and Response for FDEM. Within FDEM, Fugate's role as Chief of the State Emergency Response Team (SERT) kept him busy in 1998, the SERT team was active for more than 200 days as a result of numerous floods, tornadoes, wildfires, and Hurricane Georges. Fugate and his wife Sheree hail from Gainesville, Florida. http://www.fema.gov/leadership/william-craig-fugate Donald J. Wuebbles is the Harry E. Preble Professor of Atmospheric Science at the University of Illinois. He is a professor in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences as well as an affiliate professor in the Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering and in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He was the first Director of the School of Earth, Society, and Environment at Illinois, was the first Director of the Environmental Council at the University, and was Head of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences for many years. Professor Wuebbles is a Coordinating Lead Author for the next major international IPCC assessment of climate change that will be published in 2013 and is a leader in the next U.S. National Climate Assessment, being a member of the Executive Secretariat and the Federal Advisory Committee. Dr. Wuebbles is an expert in numerical modeling of atmospheric physics and chemistry. He has authored over 400 scientific articles, relating mostly to atmospheric chemistry and climate issues. He has been a lead author on a number of national and international assessments related to concerns about climate change. He has also been a lead author on national and international assessments relating to atmospheric chemistry and the effects of human activities on stratospheric and tropospheric ozone. Dr. Wuebbles and colleagues received the 2005 Stratospheric Ozone Protection Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. He has been honored by being selected a Fellow of three major professional science societies, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Geophysical Union, and the American Meteorological Society. He is the Chair of the Global Environmental Change Focus Group for the American Geophysical Union. He shares in the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his work with the international Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. He was a member of a federal advisory committee that assessed and in 2009 published a report on the potential impacts of climate change on the United States. http://www.atmos.illinois.edu/people/wuebbles.html For additional information, please contact Phil Ardanuy (e-mail: PArdanuy@oceanleadership.org).
