The International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy is organizing the
ICTP Summer School on Theory, Mechanisms and Hierarchical Modelling of Climate Dynamics: Multiple Equilibria in the Climate System
from June 25 to June 30, 2018.
The school will be based on lectures on theoretical aspects of atmosphere, ocean and climate dynamics, with a focus on the present state of established knowledge and relevant mechanisms. The topic of the school, Multiple Equilibra in the Climate System, will be the subject of afternoon lectures, giving an overview of the most recent progress and hypotheses suggesting the existence of multiple equilibrium states, and consequences for past and future climates. Afternoons will also be devoted to practical sessions, involving the use of simplified climate models and analysis of relevant data sets.
Confirmed Speakers include:
- Simona Bordoni, CalTech, USA
- Susanna Corti, ISAC CNR, Italy
- David Ferreira, Reading U., UK
- In-Sik Kang, SNU, Republic of Korea
- John Marshall, MIT, USA
- Franco Molteni, ECMWF, UK
- Brian Rose, U. Albany, USA
- Adrian M. Tompkins, ICTP, Italy
- Geoff K. Vallis, U. Exeter, UK
- Shang-Ping Xie, SCRIPPS, USA

The school will be followed by the Workshop
2nd WCRP Grand Challenge Meeting on Monsoons and Tropical Rain Belts
from July 2 to July 5, 2018.
The workshop, building on the knowledge and practical skills acquired during the school, aims to bring together expertise on large-scale atmospheric and oceanic dynamics, small scale cloud and precipitation processes, hierarchical climate modeling and observation. The aim is to both review recent progress on tropical rainfall dynamics and to identify areas where progress is most amenable in the future given the existing and emerging modelling tools and theoretical frameworks.

Partial travel support is available for a limited number of early career scientists from the developing world and Europe. We are in the process of seeking additional funding for US early career scientists.
