motivation for workshop
Motivation for workshop
  • Blocking is an important (and long-established) problem for both weather and climate
  • The impacts of blocking for human activities can be far-reaching
  • The dissipation of blocks has been notoriously difficult for NWP models to forecast–but is this still true?
  • Climate models tend to have too little blocking – why? Is this a problem with blocking or another problem showing up as no-blocking – i.e. symptom or cause?

Is it time to re-examine the dynamics of blocking? Can we advance the subject?
