At the initiative of the WCRP Modeling Advisory Council, the WCRP and WWRP have established an International Prize for Model Development, awarded annually for an outstanding contribution to weather and climate model development by an early- to mid-career researcher.

More details on eligibility, required nomination material and selection process can be found at...

Arctic and Antarctic weather and climate prediction and predictability issues are high up on the polar (research) communities' agenda. A vast amount of information is available in different media. To help connect sending and receiving parties, a dedicated electronic mailing list tailored to people interested in Arctic and Antarctic prediction and predictability is being set up.  We will strive...

The Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) program is a six-year initiative funded by the National Science Foundation’s Division of Polar Programs and headquartered at Princeton University. 

The project was launched in September 2014 with an initial commitment of $3.5 million per year over 6 years...

The Nansen Tutu Center Summer School on Ocean, Climate and Marine Ecosystem will focus on the Agulhas Current, the Benguela upwelling system and the Tropical Atlantic and will deal with field observations, remote sensing and modelling

Participants of the pan-CLIVAR and pan-GEWEX meeting

Over 130 members of CLIVAR panels and guests gathered in The Hague this week (14-19 July) for the first-ever Pan-CLIVAR meeting.  The overall aims of the pan-CLIVAR meeting were to

  • Facilitate internal coordination between CLIVAR activities.
  • Develop ideas and input for new CLIVAR science and implementation plans.
  • Interact with GEWEX and help coordinate...

Professor Tim Palmer, a former member of both TOGA and CLIVAR SSGs, has been awarded the Institute of Physics 2014 Dirac Gold Medal for theoretical physics, for his work on probabilistic weather and climate prediction.

This is a quite a prestigious prize in the field of theoretical physics....

Ocean Modelling solicits manuscripts that document aspects of the CORE-II simulations. Manuscripts should compare simulations across a suite of models, as well as to observational analyses where available. The journal is particularly interested in manuscripts that thoroughly and pedagogically document the state-of-the-science in a particular aspect of global ocean-sea ice modelling available...

The document describes the datasets and protocol for running global ocean-ice climate models according to the CLIVAR Working Group on Ocean Model Development (WGOMD) Coordinated Ocean-ice Reference Experiments (COREs).
