3rd International Workshop on Cloud Turbulence

3rd International Workshop on
Cloud Turbulence

March 3 to 5, 2020

Nagoya Institute of Technology, Nagoya, Japan


Important notice on COVID-19

Workshop is cancelled.

The World Health Organization characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic on March 11. The workshop organizing committee had concerned with the health of attendees, staff and students at NITech, and cancelled the 3rd International Workshop on Cloud Turbulence. We sincerely appreciate the efforts done by all members and apologize again for your inconvenience.  The committee has decided that the lectures of all presenters were regarded as given at the workshop by the submission of the abstracts, and that the workshop was established. (2020/3/12)   


Clouds and turbulence are most uncertain factors in weather forecasting and climate prediction. Inside clouds, turbulent air flow transfers and mixes heat, vapor, aerosols, ices, and droplets. At the same time, droplets and ices modify the turbulent flow over a wide range of space and time scales through thermodynamic and mechanical processes, resulting in the highly non-linear, non-equilibrium complex system, cloud turbulence. The purpose of the 3rd workshop is to present new results obtained in state of the art research on clouds and turbulence, and to share and discuss them to inspire new ideas and developments for future research. A central idea of the present workshop is to tie together knowledge from the various viewpoints of microscales (aerosols and droplets), mesoscales (clouds), and macroscales (typhoons). Through discussion and dialogue between these communities, the participants will develop wider perspectives on cloud turbulence and expand the horizons of this research area.
