10th PMIP WINGS seminar

Online meeting
Working groups

The Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project (PMIP) has launched PMIP WINGS (PMIP Web-based INteractive Global Seminars), an online seminar series which the group hopes everyone will want to be part of. 

The idea is to hold seminars approximately once a month- typically on the last Thursday of the month. 
The format can develop but the plan is to start with two 20 minutes presentations plus discussion, finished within an hour, on Zoom. 


Date: Wednesday 21 February. Please note that this time around, the seminar will not be held on a Thursday, but on a Wednesday instead.
Location: Online
Time: 9:00 am JST - Japanese Standard Time (please note the unusual time zone) (UTC+9)
11:00 am Australian Eastern Standard Time 
0:00 am UTC (Wed 21 Feb)
01:00 am CET (Wed 21 Feb)
Join Zoom meeting: Please email (kira[dot]rehfeld[at]uni-tuebingen[dot]de) for connection details

Send a mail to (pmip4web[at]lsce[dot]ipsl[dot]fr) if you are not a member of the list yet, and you want to receive PMIP related information.


PMIP is happy to announce the next PMIP WINGS seminar in February. Please notice that it will NOT be held on Thursday.
Both Dr. Gabriel Pontes and Dr. Yasuto Watanabe will present a 20 min. talk followed by a 10 min. Q&A for each (one hour in total).
It will be chaired by Masakazu Yoshimori.


Dr. Gabriel Pontes, research scientist at the Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) and the Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Sciences (ACEAS) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW)
Title: “ENSO sensitivity to background states: lessons from a multi-climate analysis” (20 min.)

Dr. Yasuto Watanabe, research associate at the Meteorological Research Institute of Japan Meteorological Agency
Title: "Drivers of the 41-kyr glacial cycles during the early Pleistocene" (20 min.)

Future seminars

The group is always looking to fill up the rest of the seminar series, and looking for volunteers. You can present anything PMIPish. It can be science results, plans, work in progress, proposals for things that PMIP could do, or really any other things that may be of interest to the members of PMIP. Please email (pmip-wings[at]lsce[dot]ipsl[dot]fr), if you would like to volunteer yourself or to nominate an early-career researcher whose work you feel deserves a broader audience. The group would also like one more organiser in the Americas, who can host a big Zoom meeting and handle the recording and upload.
