Over 30 experts from across the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and the wider science community gathered in Hamburg last week to discuss the scientific direction of the Programme. The aim of the WCRP High-level Science Questions and Flagship Workshop was to refine the overarching research objectives of WCRP and to think about the activities and/or experiments
The outcomes of the workshop are currently being consolidated and a report will be available in the next couple of weeks. They will feed into a second 'Elements and Structure' workshop that will take place in Washington DC at the end of March. The recommendations from the two workshops will be presented at the 41st Session of the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee (JSC), which will take place in Sydney, Australia, in May.
The workshop was hosted by the Cluster of Excellence “Climate, Climatic Change, and Society” (CLICCS).
