The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has launched the Climate Data Guide Website. The NSF-funded Climate Data Guide, produced by NCAR's Climate Analysis Section, enables researchers, students and stakeholders worldwide to search for data sets used in climate analysis and model evaluation, learn about data sets' strengths and limitations from expert-users and share expertise and advice on data sets.
The five new U.S. CLIVAR Working Groups (WG) include the Eastern Tropical Ocean Synthesis WG, the ENSO Diversity WG, the Extremes WG, as well as two working groups co-sponsored with the Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry (OCB) Program: the Ocean Carbon Uptake WG, and the Southern Ocean WG.
The 2012 U.S. CLIVAR Summit was held in Newport Beach, CA July 17-20. This annual meeting is for the U.S. CLIVAR Scientific Steering Committee and three Panels to review progress and accomplishments of the program over the past year and develop input for the program’s Science Plan for the next 15 years. Presentations from the event are available to download on the 2012 Summit webpage.
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 October 24, 2022. The next call for workshops will be in spring 2023.
