From 27th till 28th June 2017, CzechGlobe in cooperation with the University College Cork from Ireland, organized a workshop on the subject of "Modulation of plant UV-responses by environmental factors". The workshop was held under the auspices of the international company UV4Plants. The company was founded on the basis of the action COST "UV4Growth" and it associates plant ecophysiologists dealing with the effect of UV radiation on plants in combination with other factors.
Glacial lake outburst floods (GLOF) occur due to the failure or overtopping of the dam of a glacial lake. These floods are characterised by low frequency of occurrence but high magnitude. Peak discharge of GLOF may overcome peak discharge of „classical“ hydrometeorologically-induced flood by several times, thus GLOFs represent significant hazardous process, especially in high mountain areas where glacier retreat leads to the formation and evolution of glacial lakes. Understanding to the spatiotemporal patterns of GLOFs occurrence is essential for more advanced GLOF risk management.
CzechGlobe participated at consultation workshop of SEACRIFOG project on EU-African cooperation in Zambia
As part of the H2020 SEACRIFOG Euro-African cooperation project (Supporting EU-African Cooperation on Research Infrastructures for FOod security and Greenhouse gas observations, https://www.seacrifog.eu/), we co-organized a consultation stakeholder workshop focusing on three main topics: (i) land use change implications for food security, (ii) greenhouse gas observations and climate change mitigation, (iii) capacity development.
On May 2nd and 3rd 2018, the Global Change Research Institute CAS - CzechGlobe hosted the second "General Assembly of the project C3Surf".
The C3Surf project is a project resolved within Copernicus Climate Services (http://surfobs.climate.copernicus.eu/). CzechGlobe is part of a wider consortium of meteorological institutes from the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, Austria and Hungary, which are united by the EUMETNET European Meteorological Services Network and the University of East Anglia (UEA). CzechGlobe is represented in this project by the Department of Climate Modelling.
The assembly in CzechGlobe concentrated Europe's leading climatologists including prof. Phil Jones of UEA, who is the main creator of the CRU global temperature range. The event was also attended by the administrators of ECA & D database of climatological observations and creators of the E-OBS grid dataset, experts from Norway, Hungary, Switzerland, Austria, who, among other things, also create national datasets (grid products).
