About the Summit

The 2017 US CLIVAR Summit will bring together the members of the Scientific Steering Committee and its three implementation Panels, agency managers, and invited speakers to review progress, identify opportunities, and develop strategies to advance US CLIVAR goals under the direction of the Science Plan.

Leading up to the Summit, a webinar series will be hosted to feature updates from the US CLIVAR working groups and the AMOC science team. Panel members, SSC, and agency managers are encouraged to attend. 

The meeting will also have two special sessions on August 8. These sessions will be broadcast and anyone can join in the discussion online.
