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.
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."
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.

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.
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). See our compiled list of sessions and town halls that are relevant to the community and organized by our Panels, Working Groups, and community members.
Save the new dates for the US AMOC Science Team Meeting, scheduled for April 12-15, 2021 in Woods Hole, MA. Now in its final year, the Science Team invites colleagues from the US and international community to review progress over the past decade and to identify remaining priorities to guide future international collaborations in the decade ahead.
Join us Wednesday May 20 at 2pm ET for the PPAI Panel Webinar Series. This webinar will continue the theme of marine heatwaves and feature Mike Jacox (NOAA SWFSC/ESRL), "Thermal displacement - a new metric for characterizing marine heatwaves and their potential impacts".
