Figure: A schematic illustration of pantropical feedbacks affecting ENSO. The black loop represents internal Pacific fast positive feedbacks (short arrows) and delayed negative feedbacks (long arrows). Interbasin feedbacks include Pacific feedbacks onto the Atlantic and Indian Oceans (blue arrows), delayed negative feedbacks of the Atlantic and Indian...

World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) recently announced that the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee (JSC) had elected Professor Detlef Stammer as its Chair and Dr Helen Cleugh as its Vice-chair for two years.

Detlef Stammer is a Professor at the Institute of Oceanography and the Director of the Center for Earth System Sciences and Sustainability (CEN), both at the University of Hamburg...

Driven by increases in computing power, the treatment of small-scale physical processes in atmospheric models is at an exciting juncture.  Some recent approaches (e.g., higher-order closure) are being implemented operationally, and others (e.g., machine learning) are being explored in earnest.  To discuss these alternatives and future possibilities, the National Science...
