Riportiamo il testo integrale con il tema della sessione:

"This session is multi-purpose and aims at connecting various experts of the international scientific community that works on atmospheric and oceanographic phenomena as well as air-sea interactions, occurring at different temporal and spatial scales in coastal and open-ocean areas.

This session will welcome contributions using analysis, observations, numerical and machine learning tools, applied to specific case studies, operational applications and related services (such as risk assessment, coastal management, renewable energy spatial planning, coastal erosion and deposition, the resilience of coastal citizens and activity in the context of climate change, etc). The objectives are to foster the connections between atmospheric and oceanographic scientific communities and to promote an integrated and multidisciplinary approach for the analysis observations and the modeling of the Earth system.

In detail, this session will welcome:
I) Numerical studies spanning from uncoupled and coupled numerical models to the Digital-Twins, that analyze dynamics of the ocean, atmosphere, and waves (with particular attention to air-sea interactions), in coastal and open ocean areas.
II) Observational studies using oceanographic (ARGO floats, Gliders and AUV, buoys, Stereo 3D imaging, operational campaigns, and survey, etc) and atmospheric (automatic weather stations, sonic anemometers, disdrometers, etc.) in-situ measurements, ground-based (Coastal High-Frequency Radar (HFR), S, C and X-band weather radar, etc), and space-borne remote sensing techniques (scatterometer, SAR, etc).
III) Application of Machine Learning and Deep Learning Weather and Ocean Prediction techniques both in the ocean and atmospheric environment in support of a wide range of applications, such as: data assimilation systems, ensemble approach and processing, nowcasting numerical schemes, early warning systems, decision support services, physical ocean and atmospheric processes analysis, seasonal and climate projection applications and other experimental study techniques.

We invite contributions including, but not limited to, the following topics:
• Intense cyclones, Medicanes, Air-sea interactions and impacts in coastal areas
• Severe wind storms, Wave storms, Extreme Waves and Storm surges
• Coastal floods and Heavy Precipitation Events (HPEs)
• Sea level oscillations and sea level future projections
• Cold Air Outbreak, Cold and Dry Spells, and feedback with the atmosphere and ocean
• Marine and Atmospheric Heat Waves
• Ocean Heat Content modification and its impact on the atmosphere  on short, seasonal and long time scales
• Dense Water Formation processes
• Coastal circulation and Sediment transport"

Ciclo di incontri “Cambiamento climatico e sostenibilità: la sfida dell’adattamento”

La Scuola Universitaria Superiore IUSS di Pavia ci porta all’attenzione l’avvio di un ciclo di incontri il cui tema principale è: “Cambiamento climatico e sostenibilità: la sfida dell’adattamento”. Il primo incontro che si terrà il prossimo 15 marzo 2023, dalle ore 16:30 alle ore 17:30, in presenza presso nell’Aula Magna della Sala del Camino, Palazzo Broletto in Piazza della Vittoria, 15 (Pavia) e online sulla piattaforma Zoom, ha come titolo: Med-GOLD: Un sistema agro-climatico innovativo per l’adattamento al cambiamento climatico nell’area Mediterranea.

L’evento è organizzato nell’ambito delle attività di Public Engagement, verrà introdotto dal Prof. Marco GAETANI ed interverrà il Dott. Massimiliano PASQUI dell’Istituto di Bioeconomia del CNR di Roma. Vi lasciamo un abstract dell’evento, l’indirizzo mail dove inviare l’iscrizione all’evento, il link per la richiesta di partecipazione online e le locandine, sia dell’evento del 15 Marzo, sia dei prossimi incontri organizzati dalla Scuola IUSS.

Il Mediterraneo è oramai riconosciuto come una delle aree maggiormente
interessate dagli effetti del cambiamento climatico e tale impatto sta
influenzando sempre più il modo in cui la produzione agricola viene
ottenuta. Queste preoccupanti tendenze climatiche sono previste
accelerare ulteriormente nei prossimi de-cenni delineando una continua
sfida che la società è chiamata ad attraversare. Alcune tra le
coltivazioni tipiche di questa area non sono più pienamente
sostenibili, come accade già ora per il grano duro in Medio Oriente,
dove questa coltura ha avuto la sua origine. Il progetto MED-GOLD, del
programma di finanziamento Europeo Horizon 2020, ha realizzato, anche
raccogliendo le preoccupazioni e l'esperienza di agricoltori e degli
agronomi sui rischi legati al cambiamento climatico, un prototipo di
servizio climatico specifico ed efficiente per favorire l'adattamento ai
cambiamenti climatici da parte di un ampio spettro di stakeholders,
identificando anche nuove opportunità che potrebbero essere offerte dal
nuovo clima.

We are looking to fill 2 PhD positions, University of Modena and Reggio
Emilia (Italy), for two projects: 
1.     New terrain analysis methods
for physically meaningful terrain partitioning in distributed hydrologic
modeling

2.     High-performance computing of 2D surface flow propagation in
complex drainage systems by using new mesh-independent numerical methods

Italy
Advisor: Prof. Stefano Orlandini
Co-advisor: Prof. Giovanni Moretti
Title: New terrain analysis methods for physically meaningful terrain
partitioning in distributed hydrologic modeling

Our mission: The Hydrologic Research Lab (www.idrologia.unimore.it [1])
led by Prof. Stefano Orlandini at UNIMORE (University of Modena and
Reggio Emilia, Modena, Italy) is committed to discovery science and
solution science in the areas of flood risk management and sustainable
use of water resources. The UNIMORE Hydrologic Research Lab Is currently
looking for a PhD student to investigate surface-subsurface flow
interactions by developing new terrain analysis methods for physically
meaningful terrain partitioning. The new methods will be used to
understand and predict complex topographic structures and
surface-subsurface flow propagation in natural and man-altered drainage
systems. Surface-subsurface flow models based on physically meaningful
unstructured terrain partition are significantly more accurate and
computationally efficient than existing model based on regular grids.
These models will therefore make it possible the investigation of
surface flow processes at spatial and temporal scales that are still
poorly explored. As a PhD student you will have the opportunity to
further current understanding in this field through a combination of
data analysis, fieldwork, and modeling. Specifically, high-resolution (1
m or less) topographic data based on lidar surveys, FORTRAN programming,
and high-performance computing will be used in the proposed PhD project.


Main duties and responsibilities include:

·      Perform original research in the area of hydrology and high
performance computing.

·      To lead and contribute to publications for high-impact journals.

·      Contribute to broad Lab activities (including co-supervision of
MSc students).

 Your profile:

·      A MSc in Civil/Environmental Engineering, Physics, Math

·      Strong interest in catchment hydrology and geomorphology.

·      Experience with mathematical/numerical modeling and analysis of
large datasets.

·      Creative, enthusiastic, and willing to learn.

·      Self-motivated and have a sense for scientific novelty.

·      Written and oral communication skills in English.

·      Experience with scientific writing is valued.

We offer:

·      A stimulating working environment at the UNIMORE Department of
Engineering Enzo Ferrari.

·      Competitive salary and excellent educational conditions.

·      Opportunity to perform state-of-the-art research in a dynamic
scientific institution.

·      Opportunity to undertake a 6-month visit in some non-Italian
university or research center.

Application deadline: 17 November 2022, 13:00 CET.

Start date: 1 January 2023.

Work rate: 100%

Duration: 3-year fixed-term contract.

Contact: Interested applicants may want to send the following documents
(preferably in a single pdf) to stefano.orlandini@unimore.it, by 12
November 2022.

·      A brief CV and contact details of 2–3 references

·      A brief letter of motivation/interest in the project
