"Weather and Climate Extremes"

The 1st Thailand Weather and Climate Symposium 2021


The goal of Weather and Climate Symposium 2021 is to conduct the weather and climate search community to academic institutions and government agencies, uncover weather, and climate research in nation level and build up the atmosphere for young scientists. In term of climate science, it is not only to share innovative techniques for better data analyses and utilization of climate information but also to exchange scientific knowledge on agricultural, water resource, environmental, and disaster risk responses to weather and climate extremes.


The weather and climate extreme events and its impacts under climate change which have endangered lives or had a detrimental social or economic impact. The topics will be drought, severe flooding, heatwaves and strong winds events. it is relevant to large-scale systems such as EL Nino event, monsoon system, tropical cyclones, or smaller convective events.


Occurs every Thursday, Friday effective 12/16/2021 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, (UTC+07:00) Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta

Meeting number: 2557 568 1877 Password: @2021

The two-day conference consists of poster and oral presentation and discuss in the current weather & climate extreme events. The 1st Thailand Weather and Climate Symposium 2021 will be held online on December 16-17th, 2021 cohost by the British Embassy Bangkok, Thai Meteorological Department (TMD), Thailand Science Research and Innovation (TSRI), and Nation Research Council of Thailand (NRCT)

Conference Theme

The impact of weather and climate extreme events past 5 years under climate change. By high impact weather, they should be thinking of events which have endangered lives or had a detrimental social or economic impact. So, this could include drought, severe flooding, heatwaves, strong winds, etc. these might be from large-scale systems such as El Niño event, monsoon system, tropical cyclones, or smaller convective events.

Conference Format

To open a space for profound discourse on the specific weather and climate extreme tracks under climate change identified. The event will consist of two activities: online presentation and poster competition.
Call for presenting on research in the areas of weather and climate extreme events and its impacts will be launched in September 2021. The poster’s winner will be asked to prepare article submitting for ASEAN Specialized Meteorological Centre (ASMC) Bulletin Issue #9 in March 2022.

Two-day conference

Day1 is for online presentation and invited speakers from NOAA NCEP/CPC.
Day2 is for online presentation and invited speakers from UK Met Office (UKMO) who are experts to give a special talk and discuss in the current weather & climate extreme events and innovative techniques. We will be grateful if you can indicate your interest to contribute an article from 30th October 2021 for early bird. Subsequently, we would appreciate if you can submit a full article (extended) by 30th November 2021 to allow for some editorial processing time.


  • To discuss the current weather & climate extreme events under IPCC AR6 in terms of science knowledge basis and physical mechanisms.
  • To give a talk to the climate drivers (monsoon, regional and global-scale circulations) lead to the extreme events.
  • To give a talk, how to predict an extreme event and develop the prediction on the long-range forecast time scale.
  • To give a talk and discuss, how to conduct a climate risk assessment and climate-related impact to sectors.
  • To give a key message, how to build up a robust weather and climate research forum.

Target Group

  • Researcher
  • Young scientist
  • Meteorologist
