Executive Director of ICPO present on the 3rd Open Science Symposium on the Western Pacific Ocean Circulation and Climate organized by NPOCE, May 8-10 2018, Qingdao

The “Northwestern Pacific Ocean Circulation and Climate Experiment (NPOCE)” is an international joint program endorsed by CLIVAR in 2010. The NPOCE program is designed to observe, simulate, and understand the dynamics of the Western Pacific Ocean (WPO) circulation and its role in low-frequency modulations of regional and global climate such as the western Pacific warm pool variability, ENSO, East Asian Monsoon, and the tropical cyclones.

An early career perspective on the future of CLIVAR

The Early Career Scientists Symposium was held alongside the 2016 CLIVAR Open Science Conference in Qingdao, hosted by the First Institute of Oceanography. The Symposium aimed to capture the ideas of early career researchers on pressing science priorities, immediate challenges, and emerging opportunities to help guide the future evolution of CLIVAR. 135 early career scientist (ECS) from 34 countries traveled to Qingdao and discussed their vision for the future of CLIVAR.
