Workshop on Spatial Organisation of Convections, Clouds and Precipitation

This workshop aims to provide an interactive platform to present and discuss ongoing work and open questions about organised and self-organised phenomena in cloud fields. We especially invite thought-provoking contributions and new ideas.

The workshop aims to bring together the communities working on climate physics, statistical mechanics and meso-scale meteorology. The workshop will be organised around three core topics, mentioned below and in the scientific programme. 

A number of presentations will be on convection, but we are keen to also involve scientists working on related topics, such as soil-moisture and ocean (e.g. ocean mixed-layer) feedbacks.
