From May 22nd to 24th 2019, ICCP hosted the “East Asian workshop on Climate Dynamics”. As part of the workshop, Masahiro Watanabe (University of Tokyo), Yen-Ting Hwang (National Taiwan University), Sarah Kang (UNIST), Masakazu Yoshimori (University of Tokyo), and Fei-Fei Jin (University of Hawaiʻi) gave lectures on a wide range of climate topics. About 80 people attended the open lecture series. These included, for instance, a study on future extreme events in a warmer climate, research on tropical climate and polar climate respectively, as well as their inter-connections.
The remainder of the workshop consisted of scientific talks and discussions led by the participating students and postdocs from ICCP, UNIST, NTU, and the University of Tokyo. A major goal of the workshop was to facilitate future collaborations between the visiting research groups and provide a science training opportunity for the visiting students.
