Event Description: 

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 challenges associated with global warming. Furthermore, these upwelling regions are also of great climatic importance, playing a key role in regulating global climate. The 2016 TAV conference will comprise 3 sessions.

  1. Oceanic and atmospheric processes affecting physical-biogeochemical interaction and climate
  2. Mechanisms and simulation of tropical Atlantic climate variability
  3. Towards realizing socio-economic benefits of climate prediction in the Tropical Atlantic for marine ecosystems, fisheries, and continental climate

Deadline for Abstracts: 1st September 2016
