The 2020 AGU Fall Meeting is going to be held on 7-11 December in San Francisco, USA. In preparation for the meeting, we have compiled a list of sessions that are relevant to the community and convened by CLIVAR Panels, Research Foci and community members.

The CLIVAR/IOC-GOOS Indian Ocean Region Panel (IORP) had its quarterly telecon on 18 June 2020.

The project entitled “Enhancing the Chilean Climate Ocean Observing System (ECCOOS)”, which is led by CEAZA (Center of Advanced Studies in Arid Zones) with the collaboration of other world-class Chilean institutions, has recently been endorsed by the CLIVAR SSG.

The ENSO Conceptual Models Working Group of PRP kicked off by its first telecon organised in two sessions on June 29 and 30.

The WCRP International Project Offices (IPOs) and Joint Planning Staff (JPS) had the monthly telecon on 29 June, 2020. 

The newly established CLIVAR Research Focus on "Tropical Basin Interaction" is now inviting abstracts on "Tropical inter-basin interaction: processes, pathways and predictability" for its session at this year's AGU fall meeting. 



This second-generation CLIVAR Science Plan builds on the important legacy of CLIVAR emerging since its inception in 1992 and redirects the CLIVAR goals and priorities for the coming decade after consultation with scientists and stakeholders throughout the climate community.

Science Highlights

The writing team of the decadal Indian Ocean Observing System review has recently published a research article on the BAMS titled A roadmap to IndOOS-2: Better observations of the rapidly-warming Indian ocean, by presenting the core findings from the IndOOS review. 

A new framework for global ocean-sea-ice model simulations based on phase 2 of the Ocean Model Intercomparison Project (OMIP-2), was presented recently by CLIVAR Ocean Model Development Panel (OMDP) and other ocean model communities.

An assessment of the Indian Ocean mean state and seasonal cycle in a suite of interannual CORE-II global ocean–sea-ice model simulations is presented.
