International Commission on Clouds and Precipitation (ICCP)

The International Commission on Clouds and Precipitation (ICCP) is a Commission of the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS)
The IAMAS is one of the associations of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG)

The ICCP holds a conference every 4 years.   The last conference was at Manchester University in 2016, The next is due in 2020.

Typical subjects in calls for papers are theoretical, observational and numerical modelling studies of cloud and precipitation physics, cloud chemistry and cloud dynamics.  

For instance the following subjects are commonly covered at the conferences

  • Basic cloud and precipitation physics
  • Warm boundary layer clouds
  • Convective clouds (including cloud electrification)
  • Mixed phase clouds (including Arctic/Antarctic stratus, mid-level clouds)
  • Cirrus clouds
  • Orographic clouds
  • Fog and fog layers
  • Mesoscale cloud systems (including severe storms)
  • Tropical clouds
  • Southern Ocean clouds
  • Polar stratospheric clouds and noctilucent clouds
  • Aerosol-cloud-precipitation-interactions and processing
  • Clouds and climate (including radiative properties of clouds)
  • Ice nuclei and cloud condensation nuclei
  • Cloud and precipitation chemistry
  • Measurement techniques (of cloud and precipitation properties) and uncertainties
  • Applications of cloud and precipitation physics
