WCRP Open Science Conference in Denver from 24-28 October 2011
Climate Research in Service to Society
The WCRP Open Science Conference represents an exclusive opportunity to assemble the international scientific community working to advance understanding and prediction of variability and change of the Earth’s physical climate system on all space and time scales. The Open Science Conference will facilitate cross-fertilization across the diverse research communities within the WCRP, as well as with other international research programmes, including the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), the World Weather Research Programme (WWRP) and the Earth System Science Partnership (ESSP).
The Open Science Conference will appraise the current state of climate science, thereby making a measurable contribution on the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It will identify key opportunities and challenges in observations, modeling, analysis and process research required to understand and predict responses of the Earth as a system.
By entraining as many young scientists and students as possible from across the world, including less-developed and developing countries, the Open Science Conference will facilitate growth of the diverse future workforce needed to meet the increasingly complex scientific challenges of the future.
