eScience, ensemble methods and environmental changes in high latitudes (co-organized)
Convener: Ignacio Pisso  | Co-Conveners: Andreas Stohl , Michael Schulz , Torben R. Christensen , Risto Makkonen , Tuula Aalto , Helmut Neukirchen , Laurent Bertino , Alberto Carrassi 

The multiple environmental feedback processes at high latitudes involve interactions between the land, ocean, cryosphere, biosphere and atmosphere. For trustworthy computational predictions of future climate change, these interactions need to be taken into account by eScience tools. In particular, this requires: 1) Integration of existing measurement data and enhanced information flow between disciplines; 2) Representation of the current process understanding in Earth System Models (ESMs) for which computational limitations require balancing the process simplifications; and 3) Improved process understanding. eScience such as High-Performance Computing (HPC), big data or scientific workflows is central in all of these areas.
Contributions in fields related to the intersection of environmental change (such as, but not restricted to, measurements, inverse modeling, data assimilation, process parametrizations, ESMs) and eScience (such as, but not restricted to, and HPC, scientific workflows, big data, ensemble methods) are welcome.
