Welcome to the 5th International Workshop on Nonhydrostatic Models. The
nonhydrostatic models and their application in the numerical weather
prediction and climate study have advanced rapidly during the last few
decades. This workshop is relevant to all aspects of nonhydrostatic models
ranging from Large Eddy Simulation models to nonhydrostatic global models,
including dynamical frames, physics schemes, and data assimilation schemes.
The following topics are also welcome: predictability and applications to
mesoscale phenomena, such as tropical cyclones, heavy precipitations, and
shallow clouds. The future of high-performance computing for the meteorological
and climate research is one of our great concerns. The open seminar on
non-hydrostatic models also will be held in the afternoon of last day of
the Workshop to release the information of the most advanced researches in Japan and
operational forecasts of the Japan Meteorological Agency.

The 5th International Workshop Nonhydrostatic Models will be held at
Japan Meteorological Agency, Tokyo. The workshop will run from 9:30 a.m. Nov. 14
to 12:00 a.m. Nov. 16, 2018. From 13:30 p.m. to 16:35 p.m. Nov. 14, the Open
Seminar on Nonhydrostatic Models will be held by the Meteorological Society of Japan
and Japan Meteorological Agency.
