Special Issue on Climate Science for Services Partnership (CSSP) China

——Golden Thread between Science and Service

Call for Papers

Since 2014, the Climate Science for Service Partnership China (CSSP China), as a flagship project of the Newton Fund (channeled through the UK-China Research and Innovation Partnership in China), has built a strong foundation for climate science and climate services to support economic development and social welfare in China and the UK by close collaborative work among research experts and user representatives from the China Meteorological Administration’s National Climate Center (CMA NCC) and the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Met Office, and other key UK and Chinese universities, institutes and companies. This special issue will illustrate the rapidly developing capability to develop and deliver climate services in China through progress in science and technology raised by CSSP China.

CSSP China is organized into five work packages, four of which are rooted in the climate science and the fifth, climate services, as the most crucial one, is the output and application of science. The special issue will set a stage for representing the latest progress in climate service development delivery in CSSP China. Papers for this special issue are solicited for the development or improvement of (prototype) climate services from the following underpinning science areas:

1) Monitoring, attribution, and reanalysis;

2) Global dynamics of climate variability and change;

3) East Asian climate variability and extremes;

4) Development of models and climate projection systems.

In support of the publication of this special issue, publication charges of innovative, well-written papers will be waived, pending on the scores and comments of the handling Editor/reviewers and the Responsible Editors Team of this special issue. Contributions from both Chinese and overseas authors are well encouraged.

He is a member of 16th Session of Commission for Climatology Management Group (CCl-16 MG) and Co-Chair of its working group 1 (OPACE 1). He is also the Chairman committee of the National Standardization Technical Committee of China on climate and climate change, and Director of Climatology and Climate Resource Committee of the Chinese Meteorological Society as well. He is mainly engaged in research and operational work on climate change and climate disaster risk management, and presided over a number of research projects such as the national major scientific research program. He has published more than 50 scientific papers, co-published 5 academic monographs and anthologies.

Cheng QIAN, Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, qianch@tea.ac.cn

Dr. Cheng Qian is a professor in the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is also an adjunct professor in the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. He earned the "Yibing Xie Award for Outstanding Youth in Meteorological Science and Technology" in 2013 and was selected as a member of "Youth Innovation Promotion Association of Chinese Academy of Sciences" in 2016. He was one of the chief authors in Chapter 3 “Detection and attribution of climate change” of the Fourth Assessment Report of China National Climate Change. His research area is detection and attribution, and prediction and projection of regional climate change. He has authored 30 articles, 18 of which are indexed by SCI as the first author. His representative publications include detection and attribution of human influences on seasonal cycle of temperature, multi-decadal variability, and event attribution of the record-breaking cold event in January of 2016 in China.

Tyrone Dunbar , Met Office, United Kingdom, tyrone.dunbar@metoffice.gov.uk

Dr. Tyrone Dunbar is manager of climate services at the UK Met Office. His PhD from the University of Reading focussed on remote sensing of turbulence in the atmospheric boundary-layer and he has published on aspects of boundary-layer modelling and pollution dispersion. Following his PhD, he worked as a technical advisor on climate change in the UK government; contributing to the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment and National Adaptation Programme; as part of the UK delegation on the IPCC’s 5th Assessment Report; and leading on translation of outputs from the Met Office Hadley Centre Climate Programme into advice for policy-makers and stakeholders. He then spent three years working as Private Secretary to the Met Office Chief Scientist, assisting with management of the Met Office’s scientific research programme, which consists of over 500 scientists and engineers.

Chris Hewitt, Met Office, United Kingdom, chris.hewitt@metoffice.gov.uk

Prof Chris Hewitt is Head of International Climate Services at the UK Met Office and Professor of Climate Science at the University of Southern Queensland. He has 10 years of experience developing and delivering climate services with many organisations around the world ensuring pull-through of science to services for societal benefit and guiding science developments to be aligned to societal needs. Following World Climate Conference-3 in 2009, he has taken a lead role establishing and developing the UK Met Office’s climate services worldwide, leads major climate service projects funded by the European Commission and the UK government, has been central to developing the UN’s Global Framework for Climate Services, and leads several international climate service-related Expert Teams for the World Meteorological Organization. He has co-led the climate services work package of the Climate Science for Service Partnership China (CSSP China) since it began in 2014.
