CXiao- Asia CliC in 2011-12 and near future


CliC is very active in China, and there have been annual reports from the Chinese National Committee on CliC and IASC. Specifically, China is very involved in the international “Third Pole” project, with several research projects and reports related to the subject. Future cryospheric research for 2013-2017 (and possibly the next two decades) is planned in three major areas: Simulation of cryosphere and climate, mechanisms of cryospheric changes, and impacts of cryospheric changes. The framework for Cryospheric Sciences in China is to look at cryospheric connections to all parts of the earth system (adaptation, disasters, sea level/hydrology, ecosystem, etc). Several meetings and symposia were co-sponsored by WCRP-CliC: In 2011, China hosted two WCRP/CliC sponsored symposia on cryosphere topics, the “Symposium on Science and Monitoring of Glaciers“ and the “International Symposium on Changing Cryosphere, Water Availability and Sustainable Development in Central Asia”. China also hosted the “International Conference on Cryosphere: Changes, Impacts and Adaptation”. In 2012, there was a CNC-CliC annual workshop and an international symposium on changes in glaciers and ice sheets is planned for 28 July-2. August 2013 in Beijing, China.

Presented by Cunde Xiao, Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences, at the 9th CliC Scientific Steering Group meeting in Potsdam, Germany 2013.

The atmosphere-ocean boundary layer in which sea ice resides includes many complex processes that require a more realistic treatment in GCMs, particularly as models move toward full earth system descriptions. The primary purpose of the workshop was to define and discuss such coupled processes...
