CLIVAR at the PICES-2020 virtual meeting

Upon invitation by the Executive Secretary of the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES), CLIVAR joined the PICES-2020 Annual Meeting (virtual) as an observer. The theme of the meeting is “How does 30 years of research on changing North Pacific ecosystems inform the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?”.

CLIVAR participated in the Physical Oceanography and Climate (POC) Committee meetings, which was organized on September 28-29, 2020, and exchanged the opinions about future collaboration between PICES and CLIVAR.

Sonya Legg, the co-chair of the CLIVAR Scientific Steering Group (SSG), made a presentation during the meeting. A poster prepared by the International CLIVAR Project Office (ICPO) has been submitted to the organizers and published online, introducing the new science plan and implementation strategy of CLIVAR, and highlighting the existing and potential collaboration opportunities between CLIVAR and PICES under the auspices of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
