- Dr. Kunio Yoneyama | JAMSTEC
- Dr. Erwin | BMKG
This topic will examine the interactions between ocean-atmosphere on hourly to seasonal time scales with a focus on the influence of near-coastal ocean variability to extreme weather / climate with the following scopes:
- What parameters of the ocean are used as the main benchmark for triggering extreme weather
- Which model is best suited to apply to get the best accuracy especially in the continent maritime region.
- Dr. Matthew C Wheeler | BoM
- Dr. Tri Wahyu H | ITB
This session aims to include all aspects of tropical systems, such as the Hadley and Walker circulations, monsoons, tropical cyclones, the Madden-Julian oscillation, easterly waves, and El Niño-Southern Oscillation. Studies on the linkage between tropical systems and climate processes (including both natural and anthropogenic origins) are welcomed too. Timescales of interest range from nowcasting through to forecasting, seasonal and climate change, and include probabilistic prediction. We welcome papers on theoretical matters, idealized simulation, observational analyses, field programs and other data sets, data analysis, and actual or potential operational forecast systems. While we especially seek papers that focus on the Maritime Continent Region, those with a more general tropical region focus are also welcome. We hope that the session will provide a fruitful opportunity for the exchange of ideas, and assist in the development of understanding in the tropical systems in the Maritime Continent and worldwide.
Atmospheric Sciences (Atmospheric Physics and Dynamics, Meteorology and Climatology, Atmosphere-Space Interaction)
- Dr. Shuichi Mori | JAMSTEC
- Prof. Eddy Hermawan | LAPAN
This topic mainly concerned to discuss the recent study of the Earth's atmosphere, its processes, the effects of other systems have on the atmosphere, and the effects of the atmosphere on these other systems. Meteorology includes atmospheric chemistry and atmospheric physics with a major focus on weather forecasting. Climatology is the study of atmospheric changes (both long and short-term) that define average climates and their change over time, due to both natural and anthropogenic climate variability. We are also interested in open discussion about study of the upper layers of the atmosphere, where dissociation and ionization are important. Atmospheric science has been extended to the field of planetary science and the study of the atmospheres of the planets of the solar system. On the other hand, we accept discussion about atmospheric dynamics, atmospheric physics, meteorology, interaction of atmospheric and space, climatology and atmospheres on other celestial bodies, especially at around Maritime Continent (MC).
Atmospheric Environment and Chemistry
- Prof. Puji Lestari | ITB
- Dr. Ninong Komala | LAPAN
This topic seeks oral and poster presentations on atmospheric environment, chemistry and relevant fields on gas and aerosols. Observation studies on trace constituents in the atmospheric gas and particles as well as modeling studies on atmospheric pollution and chemistry are welcome. Conveners also invite the presentations on biomass burning, urban emissions, emissions from forest/vegetations, long-range transport and photochemical processing. Interactions between the atmosphere, land and oceans are also important issue of this session.
Atmospheric Simulation and Modelling
- Prof. Fredolin Tangang | UKM
- Prof. Edvin Aldrian | BPPT
The session invites papers from the modeling community, both global and regional who can present their work on latest results on weather and climate modeling (present day and future climates). These topics include but not limited to simulation, prediction, techniques, and theoretical modeling to investigate the dynamical and physical processes involved in weather and climate systems over tropical region, particularly the Maritime Continent. Uncertainties in modeling, data, observations and interpretation of model results can be discussed. Papers from around the globe are welcome, not limited only to Asia.
Technology and Instrumentation of Atmospheric Observations, Database, Data Assimilation System
- Prof. Mamoru Yamamoto | RISH-Kyoto Univ
- Ir. Halimurrahman, M.T. | LAPAN
Application of technology in atmospheric science has been proven to give significant contribution to its progress. Technology is also a tool by which the benefit of atmospheric science can be conveyed to users. This topic covers the application of technology in atmospheric science, including development, utilization and assessment of atmospheric observation instruments (satellites, radar, airborne, and ground-based instruments), data assimilation system develompment and performance, atmospheric data management and information system, machine learning and artificial inteligent in atmopsheric data processing, decision support system, High Performance Computing and Big Data in atmospheric science, etc.
Application of Atmospheric Science and Technology in Disaster, Maritime, and Climate Change
- Dr. Didi Satiadi | LAPAN
- Dr. Takahiro Osawa | Japan*
Weather and climate continum significantly affects life and human activities on earth and vice versa. Through meteorology and climatology, atmospheric science has found a wide range of applications which also contribute to its advancement. This topic shares experience in the applications of atmospheric science for societal benefits including but not limited applications in disaster management, environment and health, maritime, agriculuture and forestry, renewble energy, transportation, climate change, regional planning, education, etc.
