Stable water isotopes offer unique insight into a wide variety of Earth System processes, including the atmospheric, terrestrial, glacial and oceanic components. While many processes that affect the water isotopes take place on the time scale of weather events and below, their cumulative effect imprints on the climatic record in observations and proxy archives. The principal idea of this workshop is to provide opportunities for the community to develop a common understanding on how water isotope processes work and how they influence the climate signal, through studies involving observations, laboratory work, theory, modelling, and model-data integration.
We invite submission of abstracts to one of the following 3 sessions:
- Water isotope processes on weather time scales
- Water isotopes in the coupled climate system
- Advances in water isotope observation, simulation, and model-data integration
The 3-day event will be organised as a distributed hybrid workshop, centered on currently 5 local hubs, in Bergen, Norway; Zürich, Switzerland; Paris, France; Bremen,Germany, and Tokyo, Japan. Participants can either join one of the local hubs in person, or participate in the workshop online as individuals via zoom.
