The goal of ARTMIP
is to understand and quantify uncertainties in atmospheric river (AR) science based on choice of detection/tracking methodology. The climatological characteristics of ARs, such as AR frequency, duration, intensity, and seasonality, are all strongly dependent on the method used to identify ARs. It is, however, the precipitation attributable to ARs that is perhaps most strongly affected, and this has significant implications for our understanding of how ARs contribute to regional hydroclimate now and in the future.
Goals of the 3rd ARTMIP Workshop are:
Presentation of results from recent and ongoing ARTMIP research: Tier 1 and beyond (with a focus on Tier 2)
Working discussion of current and future ARTMIP experiments and papers.
Solicitation of expert identification of atmospheric rivers and other weather phenomena for machine learning.
The main outcome of the workshop will be to
- Produce a workshop report and summary paper describing the impacts that detection-method-uncertainty has on our understanding of atmospheric rivers – particularly with respect to impacts, variability, and trends.
