COST 733 is ended.

The COST733 community on circulation type classification continues by organizing sessions at the annual meetings of EGU and EMS. The COST733 wiki at 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.

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.
