In order to contribute to the new CLIVAR research foci on Consistency between Planetary Heat Balance and Ocean Heat Storage, investigating the role of the ocean in energy uptake related to climate change, the European Space Agency (ESA) is planning an Ocean Heat Flux activity within the framework of the Support To Science Element (STSE).

The International CLIVAR Project Office (ICPO) and Scientific Steering Group (SSG) co-chairs have been working in conjunction with a graphics design team over the last few months to redesign the CLIVAR logo. The new CLIVAR logo has now been designed and approved, and will be first utilised in a new CLIVAR brochure. The brochure will be circulated online and at Fall AGU, at the US-CLIVAR townhall meeting in December. The new logo will be officially rolled out online, when the new website goes live in January.


US CLIVAR is hosting a town hall meeting at the Fall AGU meeting in San Francisco (9-13Dec 2013). The session will be held on Monday 9th December at 12.30-13.30.
