Call for Papers for "The 2011-12 Indian Ocean Field Campaign: Atmospheric-Oceanic Processes and MJO Initiation"
Submission acceptance begins 15 February 2013
Submission deadline through 31 August 2013
Guest Editor: Chidong Zhang, University of Miami
An international field campaign with participation from 16 countries took place over the central equatorial Indian Ocean during October 1, 2011 – March 31, 2012. The objective of the field campaign was to collect observations to advance our understanding of the physical processes related to initiation of the Madden-Julian oscillation (MJO) and to expedite our ability of simulating and forecasting the MJO. The proposed special collection should include all articles published in JGR-Atmospheres, JGR-Oceans and Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems that discuss observations from this field campaign and model simulations either using the field data or targeting phenomena observed during the field campaign.
Manuscripts are to be submitted through AGU's Geophysical Electronic Manuscript Submissions System (GEMS) website for Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems. For additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call for Papers for “The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology Earth System Model”
Submission acceptance begins: 1 May 2012
Submission deadline through: 28 February 2013
Guest Editor: Bjorn Stevens, Institution: Max-Planck-Institut für Meteorologie
This special section is devoted to the scientific description of the MPI-ESM, the Earth System Model developed by the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology. The MPI has a long history of developing high-quality coupled models. This newest generation of our coupled model is the first to systematically incorporate the carbon cycle and represent dynamic vegetation, but equally important is its improved representation of basic physical processes. The papers in this section present a description of the MPI-ESM, and an initial evaluation---including the development of several novel configurations and features.
Manuscripts should be submitted through the AGU’s Geophysical Electronic Manuscript Submission System (http://james-submit.agu.org.org/cgi-bin/main.plex)Web site. For additional information please contact: email@example.com.
