A SWOT-AdAC and CLIVAR-OMDP initiative, the FilaChange, an international conference on ocean processes linking filaments and finescales (1-100 km) with climate change, a MULTI-SITE WORKSHOP will be held during 29 August – 2 September 2022.

The second GCOS Climate Observation Conference is going to be organized in Darmstadt, Germany on 17-19 October 2022. Abstract submission and registration are now open.

The CLIVAR/CliC Northern Oceans Region Panel organized its teleconference on 21 April, 2022, with the participation of NORP members and the new ex-officio members, Alexandra Jahn and Julienne Stroeve. 

The CLIVAR Climate Dynamics Panel (CDP) held its first telecon in 2022 on 13th April, right after the CLIVAR SSG-27.

The 3rd Summer School on Theory, Mechanisms and Hierarchical Modeling of Climate Dynamics: Tropical Oceans, ENSO and their teleconnections, will be organized at ICTP, Trieste, Italy from 18 - 29 July 2022 in a hybrid format. Register here.

The 18th Session of CLIVAR/IOC GOOS Indian Ocean Region Panel (IORP) held virtually on 23 March 2022, alongside the annual meetings of other Indian Ocean partners.



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.

Aiming to account for the Polar Amplification, this study used global climate simulations from CMIP5 and CMIP6 to investigate the effects of three different global warming thresholds (1.5 °C, 2 °C and 3 °C) and the projected ice free occurrence of both poles.

A recent study led by Dr Luciano Pezzi, member of the CLIVAR/CliC/SCAR Southern Ocean Region Panel, was published in Climate Dynamics. This work brings a new approach to the study and understanding of the oceanic surface cooling that the oceanic South Atlantic Convergence Zone (SACZ) causes, concerning air-sea interaction processes. 

In the recent review paper, "Freshwater in the Arctic Ocean 2010–2019", the CLIVAR/CliC Northern Ocean Region Panel assess how the Arctic freshwater budget has changed since the 2000s using ocean reanalyses, in-situ observations,and satellite measurements
