COST 733 is ended.
The COST733 community on
circulation type classification continues by organizing sessions at
the annual meetings of EGU and EMS. The
the University in Augsburg is maintained and is the portal for
getting updated information about the progress of Circulation Type
Classifications, updates of the cost733class software etc.
Session CL2.4 at EGU Assembly in Vienna 7.-12.April 2013.
Session CL8 at EMS/ECAM in Reading (UK), 9.-13.September 2013.
Deadline for abstracts: 25.April 2013|
COST733 Final workshop
final event of COST733 was an open workshop held in Vienna
22-24.November 2010. The workshop focused on the following topics:
Results and conclusions of COST733
Recent advances in circulation and weather type classification
Applications of circulation type classifications in Environmental
Evaluation and verification of circulation & weather type
Future directions of classifications within atmospheric and
Promotion of application of circulation type classification
Fostering a sustainable scientific network within classification
methods in atmospheric sciences.

A new web-based application
for plotting centroid maps of different circulation types and associated
statitistics (cost733plot) is launched. Check it out
Training school in Augsburg.
The COST Action 733 Training School ”Classifications in
atmospheric sciences and their applications” was successfully held at
the chair for Physical Geography and Quantitative Methods at the
University of Augsburg in Augsburg, Germany 12.-16 April 2010. The
course was attended by 23 trainees from all over Europe – selected
from more than 60 applications for the training course – most of them
advanced PhD-students or young researchers on the Post-doc-level in
different fields of climatology, meteorology and hydrology. Lectures
and exercises given by 9 experts covered a wide range of topics
including introductory and overview lectures on the theory of
classification methods used in atmospheric sciences, lectures and
exercises related to the development and the quantitative evaluation
and comparison of circulation type classifications and finally
lectures and exercises dealing with the use of circulation and
weather-type classifications for different applications (e.g. climate
change, hydrology, natural hazards, human health). A main focus has
been set to the presentation of and the practical work with the
COST733class software for circulation type classification that has
recently been developed within the COST733 action.
In addition to the daily lectures and exercises student
poster presentations taking place on 3 days offered the opportunity
for scientific discussions and exchange among trainees and lecturers.
