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."

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.
