Core Science

In the Science Plan, US CLIVAR established a set of goals to address our mission:

  • Understand the role of the oceans in observed climate variability on different timescales.
  • Understand the processes that contribute to climate variability and change in the past, present, and future.
  • Better quantify uncertainty in the observations, simulations, predictions, and projections of climate variability and change.
  • Improve the development and evaluation of climate simulations and predictions.
  • Collaborate with research and operational communities that develop and use climate information. 

The following activities are part of the core science to address the above goals. 

Observations

Data Analysis/Reanalysis

Process Studies

Model Development/Evaluation

Prediction

Applications/Communication
