Tropical Pacific Observing Needs Workshop

Save the date for the Tropical Pacific Observing Needs Workshop, May 24-26, 2021. This workshop will gather community input on the types of Tropical Pacific ocean and atmosphere observations needed to advance understanding of poorly observed subgrid-scale processes and how such observations could be leveraged to improve satellite retrievals, data assimilation, and parameterized processes in climate, forecast, and biogeochemical models.

2020 Summer Variations: New research on climate variability and change using initial-condition Large Ensembles

We showcase new applications of large ensembles to the understanding of climate variability and change on regional and decadal scales. These articles, written by early-career researchers at the forefront of their fields, span a range of emerging topics including air quality and health, ocean biogeochemistry, best practices for evaluating models’ internal variability, tools for quantifying forced changes in internal variability, and novel pattern recognition methods for detection and attribution.

Tropical Widening: From Global Variations to Regional Impacts

The Changing Width of the Tropical Belt Working Group was formed in 2016 to further the understanding of new insights that call into question the prevailing view about the nature and causes of changes in the width of the tropics. Read about the impacts and activities of the Working Group and the International Space Science Institute (ISSI) Tropical Width Diagnostics Intercomparison Project on this topic in the recently published BAMS paper, "Tropical Widening: From Global Variations to Regional Impacts."

101st AMS Annual Meeting, CLIVAR sessions of interest

The American Meteorological Society will be hosting its 101st Annual Meeting January 10-14 in New Orleans, Louisiana with considerations of added virtual options. The annual theme for the upcoming AMS Annual Meeting focuses on stengthening engagement with communities through our science and service. Included are a number of sessions relevant to the US CLIVAR community. Abstact submission for most conferences/symposia has been extended to August 31, 2020.

Current and Emerging Developments in Subseasonal to Decadal Prediction

Recently published in BAMS, "Current and Emerging Developments in Subseasonal to Decadal Prediction" outlines commonalities in the prediction of weather and climate across time scales and Earth system components, and through the value cycle from basic research to operational delivery.

CLIVAR-relevant sessions at 2020 AGU Fall Meeting

The 2020 AGU Fall Meeting will be held from December 7-11 virtually (mostly), in San Francisco (possibly), and in other regional hubs (if it is safe). In preparation for the meeting, we have compiled a list of sessions and town halls that are relevant to the community and organized by our Panels, Working Groups, and community members. The list of sessions is not intended to be exhaustive but to help digest the collection of the hundreds of sessions and events. Abstract submissions are due July 29, 2020.
