Abstract submission form now open
Submit your abstract for a poster presentation at the 2022 Workshop on Future US Earth System Reanalysis. Deadline for submissions is February 4, 2022.
Spring 2022 call for US CLIVAR-supported workshops
Requests are now being accepted for US CLIVAR-sponsored workshops. Submissions are encouraged from the US climate science community and collaborators. All documents must be submitted by April 29. The next call for workshops will be in fall 2022.
Variations: Improving the value of climate data and models for assessing climate impacts and policies
The latest edition of Variations features five articles on improving the value of climate data and models for assessing climate impacts and informing decisions. The invited authors present opportunities for climate scientists to understand the diverse ways in which climate model output is conceptualized and put to use by those in other fields. Join them on January 20 at 1pm ET for presentations and discussion of their articles.
Reopening of poster abstracts for the 2022 Multi-Year Workshop
Submit your abstract for a poster presentation at the 2022 US CLIVAR Workshop on Societally-Relevant Multi-Year Climate Predictions. Deadline for submissions is extended to January 23, 2022.
Ecological Forecasting Workshop blog
Leading up to the workshop, the Scientific Organizing Committee is publishing blog posts about ecological forecasting science, stakeholders and applications, research activities, results, and challenges. Read the first post by Victoria Coles, which summarizes Charlie Stock's plenary talk at the 2021 OCB Summer Workshop.
Now hiring: Program Specialist to support the Air-Sea Transition Zone Study Group
The US CLIVAR Project Office is hiring a Program Specialist II to support the 1-year study group on the air-sea transition zone.

The Pattern Effect: Coupling of SST Patterns, Radiative Feedbacks, and Climate Sensitivity Workshop
The workshop's goal is to advance our understanding of the coupling between surface temperatures and radiative feedbacks and the origin and timescales of surface temperature pattern evolution. Abstract submission will open in January 2022.
2021 Fall Variations
The 2021 fall edition of Variations is themed "New Frontiers for Ocean Surface Currents," with guest editors Kyla Drushka (University of Washington) and Mark Bourassa (Florida State University).
This edition of Variations highlights the state of knowledge of vertical velocity structure and its implications and measurement challenges, wind-wave-current interactions, and the role of surface currents in biological dispersion. In addition, the expected impact of technological and modeling advances on scientific understanding of ocean forecasting is discussed.
2022 Call for new US CLIVAR Panel members
