I think an old friend of mine is working at Meteo-France. If you come across Rosie Fisher say hello - she's another running climate scientist.
The nature of the meeting and of the campus means that I probably won't, but will keep my eyes open.
In the running climate scientists field, there are a couple of very good ones out there who might be some chance of undertaking a personal field study into the impacts of extreme humidity on marathon performance in Tokyo next year; Nick Earl (British, but working at Melbourne Uni) has done 2.13, and there's someone at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Colorado who's done 2.12.
And NCAR is where Rosie used to work.
Rosie's in the news today, having co-authored a paper
about the Australian fires (short outcome: climate models do not yet capture the full extent to which the risk of events like those of 2019-20 has increased).
