PREFACE-PIRATA-CLIVAR Tropical Atlantic Variability Conference will be held from 28th November to1st December 2016, UPMC, 75005 Paris, France.

Abstract submission NOW OPEN! Deadline:1st September. 


ICPO attended the workshop on Regional Oceanic Numerical Modeling and Observation organized by the NUIST on 30-31 May in Nanjing and gave a presentation on WCRP and CLIVAR.

June 8 is World Oceans Day, designed to remind everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life and to celebrate together the beauty, wealth and promise of the ocean.  This year’s theme is “Healthy oceans, healthy planet”, with special emphasis on stopping plastic pollution.

Science Highlights

Given the energy accumulation in the climate system under increased greenhouse forcing, why hasn't the Southern Ocean warmed?

A new ocean ‘reanalysis’ shows, although there are uncertainties over what might happen in the short term, the longer-term view is that a weakening of the circulation in the 21st century is still very likely as a result of increasing greenhouse gases.

ENSO's response to greenhouse warming has challenged scientists for decades, despite model agreement on projected mean state changes. Recent studies have provided new insights into the elusive links between ENSO and Pacific climate mean-state changes.
