In 2018, an external review committee convened to assess US GO-SHIP, an affiliate of international GO-SHIP, which performs global ship-based decadal surveys to collect, document, and store high precision and full depth hydrographic and biogeochemical data from the global ocean. The review committee assessed program planning, progress, and opportunities in collecting, providing, and synthesizing high quality hydrographic data to advance the scientific research goals of US CLIVAR and OCB.
Brady Ferster (Laboratoire de l'Océanographie et du Climat Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace) will present at the next POS Panel webinar series on December 5, 2019. Join us for his presentation entitled "The Role of Teleconnections in Southern Ocean SST Variability"
Registration is now open for the Surface Currents in the Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere System Workshop, February 22-23, 2020 in La Jolla, CA. Poster abstracts submission and ECS travel support requests have been extended to December 24.
The latest news, meetings, jobs, and funding opportunities for the climate science community in our November Newsgram.
NOAA's CVP and MAPP Programs announced five new Climate Process Teams (CPTs) from their 2019 calls. Learn more about the CPTs and how they can improve coupled climate models.
The US CLIVAR Scientific Steering Committee SSC seeks qualified individuals to serve on its three Panels to enhance current strengths while adding expertise in new areas. Qualified nominees are expected to represent the broader interests of the research community, be willing and able to engage in scientific as well as programmatic discussions to advance Panel activities, and work with other members of the US and international CLIVAR communities. The deadline for submission is December 20, 2019
Henry Ruhl (MBARI) will present at the next POS Panel webinar series on November 7, 2019. Join us for his presentation entitled "Global observing needs in the deep ocean"
The Sources and Sinks of Ocean Mesoscale Eddy Energy. A Joint US CLIVAR and CLIVAR Workshop Report is now available, summarizing a March 2019 workshop on advancing our understanding of ocean mesoscale eddies and their energy sources and sinks in the context of climate variability and change. Also included in the report include recommendations and next steps presented by the workshop participants.
The Mesoscale and Frontal-Scale Ocean-Atmosphere Interactions and Influence on Large-Scale Climate Working Group also in September 2019 to establish dynamical and statistical diagnostic frameworks to interpret the coupled air-sea interactions over multiple spatial and temporal scales using satellite data and high-resolution numerical models.
The Working Group on Emerging Data Science Tools for Climate Variability and Predictability was formed in September 2019 with the purpose of helping to foster the understanding, adoption, and further development of modern data science tools for the analysis of large-to-massive climate data sets.
