GCOS are inviting the broader community to review the new GCOS Implementation Plan. Comments to be submitted by 5 September 2016.

The latest CLIVAR Exchanges, a special issue the Kuroshio Current and Extension System, has just been published!

In order to better publicise papers produced by the WCRP community, papers that use WCRP data or that acknowledge WCRP in any way WCRP has created an email alias:wcrp_papers@wcrp-climate.org. All authors, panel and RF members are invited to send details of relevant articles to this address.  

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.
