Rossby Centre at CORDEX 2013 in Brussels

A number of the Rossby Centre group recently took part in the CORDEX 2013: International Conference on Regional Climate 4th-7th November at the Charlemagne Building in the EU quarter of Brussels. The conference started with a High Level Session day featuring speakers such as Connie Hedegaard, the Commissioner for Climate Change, and Thomas Stocker of the IPCC. There then followed three science days with numerous plenary, parallel and poster sessions.

In light of the strong contribution of the Rossby Centre to the CORDEX initiative seven members of the group were joined by SMHI Head of Research, Pontus Matstoms, and colleagues from the Hydrology group at the conference. Grigory Nikulin, now a member of the CORDEX Scientific Advisory Team, gave two oral presentations as did Torben Königk. In the lively poster sessions a number of Rossby Centre posters were also presented by the team.
