M08 - Advances in Atmospheric Dynamics

Convenor: Thomas Spengler  

Co-convenors:  Elizabeth Barnes, Nili Harnik, Thando Ndarana, Gwendal Rivière

The symposium focuses on advances in atmospheric dynamics based on theoretical, observational, diagnostic, and modelling studies. Contributions can cover a range of topics including, but not limited to, storm track and jet-stream dynamics, eddy-mean flow interactions, cyclone and anticyclone evolution, stationary waves, stratosphere-troposphere coupling, dynamical connections between low, middle, and high-latitudes, and modes of atmospheric variability. In addition, the symposium is interested in studies that discuss the dynamics of mid-latitude blocking.

Invited speakers: George Craig, Michael Reeder, and Ted Shepherd
