CLIVAR at the 2019 AGU Fall Meeting: A reflection
- Drivers of tropical Pacific decadal variability
- Sea-level Change, Coastal Impacts and Adaptation
- How Does Sea Ice Affect and Respond to Change in the Arctic and Antarctic Coupled Climate Systems?
- Extratropical and High-latitude Storms, Teleconnections, Extreme Events, and the Rapidly Changing Polar Climate
- Dynamics of decadal to multi-decadal modes and their impact on regional and global climate variability
- Decadal Climate Variability- Mechanisms, Predictability and Prediction
- Earth’s energy imbalance and energy flows through the climate system
Launching of IndOOS-2 Roadmap
In particular, the ‘IndOOS-2: Roadmap to Sustained Observations of the Indian Ocean for 2020-2030’, outcome of the Indian Ocean Observing System (IndOOS) Decadal Review, has been launched at the WCRP Town Hall and Exhibition Booth at the 2019 AGU Fall Meeting.
Of particular relevance for the CLIVAR community, the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Climate Science Week was held as part of the 2019 AGU Fall Meeting, to celebrate its 40 years of international climate science. Several activities have been organised in the WCRP Climate Science Week including the WCRP 40th Anniversary Symposium, 4 Town Halls, 1 Union Session, 72 science Session, a Joint Early Career Researcher Workshop and the WCRP Exhibition Booth. The successes of the WCRP community over the last four decades have been showcased, and some of the challenges and opportunities that climate science faces now and will face in the future have been highlighted during the series of activities in the WCRP Climate Science Week. The recently launched WCRP Strategic Plan (2019-2028) has been advocated through the WCRP Town Halls, Union Session and Symposium, and active feedbacks and suggestions for its future implementation have been received from the audience, with emphasised attention to voice from early career scientists.
