The 1st preparatory meeting of the ‘WCRP-CLIVAR Workshop on Climate Interactions among the Tropical Basins’ was organized on January 13th, 2021.

The monthly meeting between the International CLIVAR Global Project Office (ICGPO) and the International CLIVAR Monsoon Project Office (ICMPO) was organized on January 10 (ECT)/ January 11 (IST&CST).

The 4th Telecon of the ENSO Conceptual Model Working Group (WG) coordinated under CLIVAR Pacific Region Panel was organised on Jan.6, 2020. 16 members of the WG participated the meeting.

The 'International Workshop for Mid-latitude Air-Sea Interaction: Advancing Predictive Understanding of Regional Climate Variability and Change across Timescales' will take place in June 2021. 

The CLIVAR/CliC/SCAR Southern Ocean Region Panel (SORP) organized a two-session telecon on Dec. 8 and 10, 2020, discussing the task plan in 2021.  

The EGU General Assembly 2021 is going to be held virtually on 19-30 April. In preparation for the meeting. Abstract submission deadline: 13 January 2021 at 13:00 CET.



This second-generation CLIVAR Science Plan builds on the important legacy of CLIVAR emerging since its inception in 1992 and redirects the CLIVAR goals and priorities for the coming decade after consultation with scientists and stakeholders throughout the climate community.

In the tropical Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, easterly trade winds prevail and upwelling occurs in the eastern equatorial basin. In contrast, the Indian Ocean is subject to intense seasonally reversing monsoon wind forcing, and the annual mean prevailing winds in the equatorial basin. This provides unique features of interannual variability of the upwelling in the tropical Indian Ocean.

ENSO in the Pacific Ocean has major worldwide social and economic consequences through its global scale effects on atmospheric and oceanic circulation, marine and terrestrial ecosystems, and other natural systems. Ongoing climate change is projected to significantly alter ENSO’s dynamics and impacts.

The paper uses an unprecedented ensemble of regional climate model (RCM) projections over seven regional CORDEX domains to provide, for the first time, an RCM based global view of monsoon changes at various levels of increased greenhouse gas (GHG) forcing.
