CLIVAR is celebrating 20 years of progress since publication of its first SciencePlan in August 1995. To mark the occasion, past SSG co-chairs have contributed articles on an aspect of the CLIVAR project that they felt made particular strides during their tenure. Their reflections take us from the roots of CLIVAR in the late 1970s and 80s (the days of FGGE, TOGA and WOCE),  ...

Tropical Atlantic climate recently experienced pronounced shifts of great socio-economic importance. The oceanic changes were largest in the eastern boundary upwelling systems. African countries bordering the Atlantic strongly depend upon their ocean - societal development, fisheries, and tourism. They were strongly affected by these climatic changes and will face important adaptation...

The spatial pattern of temperature changes over the last several decades shows a pronounced contrast between the high latitudes of the two hemispheres; the Arctic warmed more than any other region on the planet, whereas the Southern Ocean adjacent to...


Observations of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) have revealed a substantial weakening of the circulation since the start of the observations in 2004 (http://www.rapid.ac.uk/rapidmoc/). Global Climate Models (GCMs) project a weakening of the AMOC over the 21st century in response to increasing greenhouse...
