  Information - AS1.21 GIS in Meteorology and Climatology

Event Information
Sharing and integrating geospatial information is essential for advancing Earth-system research. The aim of this session is explore GIS applications in meteorology and climatology in addition to integration of GIS (both science and a tool) with atmospheric and related geo- and social sciences. Contributions regarding the following topics are solicited:

Use of GIS in analysis of observational meteorological and climatological data
Application of GIS methods and techniques for integration of weather forecast and climate prediction model outputs with relevant geo- and social sciences information.
Issues related to spatial accuracy, usability and accessibility of weather and climate models with regard to GIS environment
Use of GIS in atmospheric modeling, including examples from atmospheric chemistry, land surface atmosphere interactions, and climate modeling
Representation of model uncertainty in a GIS
Web-based methods and techniques for spatial data discovery, access, and visualization, in particular with regard to real-time weather data and model output
Interoperability and data standards with regard to spatial atmospheric data
Representation of dynamic multidimensional atmospheric phenomena in a GIS
