CLIVAR endorsed the 'Years of the Maritime Continent (YMC) Research Project'

The 'Years of the Maritime Continent (YMC) Reseach Project has recently been endorsed by CLIVAR Scientific Steering Group (SSG).

The “Years of the Maritime Continent (YMC)” is a two-year (July 2017 – July 2019) project. Its overarching goal is to expedite the progress of improving understanding and prediction of local multi-scale variability of the MC weather-climate systems and its global impact through observations and modeling exercises. There are five key science thems for YMC, including: Atmospheric ConvectionUpper-Ocean Processes and Air-Sea InteractionStratosphere-Troposphere InteractionAerosol and Prediction Improvement. The YMC will engage five main activities, including: Data Sharing, Field Campaign, Modeling, Prediction and Application and Outreach and Capacity Building.
