Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere

GEWEX Integrated Product Workshop

Land Surface – Atmosphere interactions from global water and energy perspective

NEW DATES

March 16th-18th, 2021

 

Objective:


The workshop seeks to better understand the uses and limitations of the newly released GEWEX Global, 1 degree, 3-hourly Integrated Water and Energy products for use in understanding land surface – atmosphere interactions.  By examining the relationship between surface properties (including temperature, moisture, and albedo) with estimated surface fluxes, the boundary layer, convection and the movement of energy, the workshop seeks to both assess the overall consistency of the GEWEX integrated product, as well as identify additional parameters that should be included in the product going forward.  Talks are expected to address the consistency both from the global satellite perspective, as well as existing ground based measurement sites such as ARM that can shed additional light on critical processes at a local scale.  Talks that highlight the benefit of adding particular datasets to the Integrated product for new process insight are also welcomed.

Logistics:


Transportation:

The best way to get to Toledo from Madrid is the high-speed train from Atocha rail station (35 min trip; I recommend booking in advance). Bus is also a possibility. It is cheap and convenient.

Renting a car from the airport is not recommended, as Toledo city center is a pedestrian area and parking lots are costly.

Once in Toledo, city buses run from the rail and bus stations to Zocodover square in the city center. Taxis to get to the city center or straight to the hotels are also cheap (about 8 EUR) and convenient. You can even walk: there is a mechanical escalator to get to the top of the city once you cross the Alcantara bridge (Puente de Alcántara).

To get to Atocha rail station from Madrid airport there are many possibilities: underground (“metro”), 24-h bus (5 EUR, Terminus is Atocha station so there is no chance of missing the stop), taxi (30 EUR flat rate), and regional train (also convenient).

Hotels:

Toledo is a touristic city plenty of accommodation, but March can be a busy month. We advice to book well in advance in any hotel in the city center (“the casco”, map attached). The venue is at walking distance from any hotel within the river perimeter to the Avenida de la Cava.
The following hotels are recommended by the locals:

  1. Eugenia de Montijo
  2. Hacienda del Cardenal
  3. San Juan de los Reyes
  4. Alfonso VI
  5. Pintor El Greco

 

Meals:

Coffee breaks will be provided by the organisation. As with hotels, the city center is full of restaurants for lunch and dinner. Please note the peculiar meal schedule in Spain: proper lunches are served not before 13:30 (typically 13:30-15:30) and dinners not before 21:00 (typically 21:00-22:30). Nonetheless, Toledo is a touristic place and you can get food (“tapas”) basically anytime.
