Thanks to all who joined us in Austin. See photo gallery below.
Presentations from the April 2010 conference are now online.
About 50 land/weather/climate modelers and scientists attended this meeting from 35 major institutions and modeling centers worldwide.
The objective of the workshop was to advance LSMs in general and the NCEP Noah LSM in particular by addressing our growing need for multiscale and multidisciplinary modeling in the context of petascale computing architecture, and to bring new perspectives on how to model the land surface for weather, climate, and environmental studies. A result of this workshop will be a 4 to 6 page white paper that provides recommendations for future research directions and priorities.
