THEME of IWM-6:
The Global Monsoon System: Research and Forecast of
Severe Monsoon Weather and Climate Impacts
The International Workshop on Monsoons (IWM) series is a part of the WMO major quadrennial symposia and workshops series under the World Weather Research Programme (WWRP).
IWM-VI was organized by the Monsoon Panel of the WWRP Working Group on Tropical Meteorology Research (WGTMR), in cooperation with the CLIVAR/GEWEX Monsoon Panel, the MJO Task Force, the S2S Steering Group, the YMC Scientific Steering Committee, Meteorological Service Singapore, and Chinese University of Hong Kong.
The workshop provided a forum for researchers and forecasters to discuss recent advances and current issues covering all time scales (meso-, synoptic, extended range, intraseasonal, climate) that are relevant to the forecasts of high-impact weather in the monsoon regions around the world. It was also an effective means to transfer new science and technology to National Meteorological and Hydrological Services in these regions. As in previous IWMs, a monsoon training workshop was included in the programme to offer short courses to developing country NMHS forecasters sponsored by WMO.
An important part of the program was the invited reviews which will be finalized by the authors after the workshop and peer reviewed, and published in a WMO-sponsored book: The Global Monsoon System: Research and Forecast, IV.
An overview of the previous (3rd) edition can be found at:
In addition to the invited reviews, IWM-6 will also include invited and contributed oral and poster papers.
