Forecasting ENSO Impacts on Marine Ecosystems of the US West Coast

New workshop report! A joint US CLIVAR and OCB effort, the 2016 Workshop on Forecasting ENSO Impacts on Marine Ecosystems of the US West Coast aimed to develop a strategy for connecting ENSO physical climate forecasts to marine ecosystem forecasts along the US West Coast, in particular the California Current System.

Ocean Mesoscale Eddy Interactions with the Atmosphere

The 2018 Ocean Mesoscale Eddy Interactions with the Atmosphere Workshop addressed three question: How can we better assess, through direct measurements, eddy interactions with the atmosphere? How do such interactions affect ocean dynamics? Can eddies, despite their small sizes, influence weather and climate? Summaries and recommendations from this joint US CLIVAR and CLIVAR workshop are captured in the workshop report.

AMOC Webinar Series

US AMOC and UK RAPID have organized a webinar series to share summaries of the papers published in the AGU special collection with the broad international ocean and climate science community. The webinars will be held the third Thursday of each month at 11am EDT/4pm BST, with the first one scheduled for May 21 by Rong Zhang on "A Review of the Role of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation in Atlantic Multidecadal Variability and Associated Climate Impacts."

New! Ocean Uncertainty Quantification Working Group

The US CLIVAR Working Group on Ocean Uncertainty Quantification was formed in April 2020. The Working Group aims to develop strategies and identify best practices for improving the understanding, derivation, communication, and utilization of the uncertainties of ocean in-situ, remote, and modeled products related to physical variables.
