At the invitation of the organizing committee of the 2023 annual meeting of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), Professor Jin Liya and Professor Li Maoshan from School of Atmospheric Sciences at CUIT attended the EGU General Assembly 2023 in Vienna, Austria from April 22 to April 28, 2023.
The EGU annual meeting is a grand gathering in the field of earth science research in Europe and even the world, attracting more than ten thousand researchers from nearly 100 countries every year to present their latest research results and exchange academic ideas. This year's meeting was held in a hybrid online and in-person format, with 18,831 participants from 107 countries and regions, including researchers from research institutions closely related to atmospheric science such as the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) in the UK, the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in the United States, and the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as well as researchers from operational departments such as the China Meteorological Administration. The research backgrounds cover multiple fields, including atmospheric science, biogeosciences, hydrology, ocean science, planetary science, solar and terrestrial science, and solid earth science. The meeting offered 938 sessions and 16,357 oral and poster presentations for scientific exchanges, highlighting its scale (https://www.egu23.eu/).
As a member of the European Geosciences Union, Professor Jin Liya gave a live presentation entitled "New insights of the East Asian summer monsoon variability over the past 800 kyr from a transient simulation with CLIMBER-2" in the Session CL1.2 "Palaeoclimate modeling: from time-slices and sensitivity experiments to transient simulations into the future." This research is the latest achievement of the international cooperation between Professor Jin Liya and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany, focusing on simulating the evolution of the East Asian summer monsoon based on the Earth system model CLIMBER-2. Professor Li Maoshan presented an oral report entitled "Study on surface layer turbulent and energy exchange in Eastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau" in the special session "The Third Pole Environment (TPE) under Global Changes."
During the meeting, Professor Jin Liya and Professor Li Maoshan also attended academic presentations from multiple sessions related to their research areas and actively engaged in exchanges with international experts and peers. Bette Otto-Bliesner, a senior researcher from NCAR in the United States, was awarded the Milan Kozuchowsky Medal by EGU in 2023. More than a decade ago, Professor Jin Liya was invited by Bette to visit NCAR to conduct paleoclimate simulation research.
By attending the meeting, the participants not only gained insights into the international cutting-edge research achievements in the evolution of the East Asian monsoon system, short-term climate prediction, land-atmosphere interaction on the Tibetan Plateau, and other fields under the background of global climate change; they also met many outstanding experts and scholars, gained valuable experiences, and paved the way for future international collaborations in atmospheric science for our university.
