The 8th Meteorology Day from the ÖGM (Austrian Society for Meteorology) was held at the 7th and 8th of November in Salzburg, Austria, at the Edmundsburg.
Climate change and weather extremes were the focus of this conference. The contributions ranged from poster presentations to talks, both followed by interesting discussions. This time, issues especially regarding the cryosphere were presented. Other topics covered, range from phenology, extreme precipitation, satellite data as well as general climate system/modeling matters and much more. The conference program can be found here (in german): conference program.
We contributed four poster presentations (in german – except the first one – as this was the conference language):
- Alpine Lake Surface Temperatures from 1880 to 2100 Reconstructions and Projections for assessing ecosystem-service availability
- Ein entscheidungstheoretischer Ansatz zur Aufrechterhaltung des Katastrophenschutzes unterdem Klimawandel auf Grundlage von Ensembles zukünftiger Gefahrenentwicklungen
- Detektion and Attribution von anthropogenen Klimaauswirkungen auf phänologische Phasen in Deutschland
- Machine Learning Methoden zur Vorhersage von Hochwasserereignissen
The last one won the 1st place in poster presentations, which was rewarded with a certificate and prize money.
