Estuaries and global climate models!

15-16 October, 2015 Giddings attended the US CLIVAR (Climate Variability and Predictability Program) meeting entitled: Translating Process Understanding to Improve Climate Models held at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (NOAA GFDL). At this meeting Giddings and several other scientist who study oceanic and atmospheric processes gathered with scientists from National modeling centers to discuss how to improve representation of smaller-scale processes in global models. GFDL is one of those modeling centers which includes scientists from NOAA and Princeton, however other modeling centers were represented including NCAR, NOAA NCEP, NASA GISS, GMAO, DOE ACME, and ONR. It was a very interesting and fruitful meeting with a lot of wonderful scientific discussions.
