Today, we are pleased to launch the CLIVAR Atlantic Ocean Blog (AOB) (, a blog about the Atlantic Ocean - variability, predictability and change. 

The 4th Summer School on Theory, Mechanisms and Hierarchical Modeling of Climate Dynamics: Atlantic Variability and Tropical Basin Interactions at Interannual to Multi-Decadal Time Scales will be organized during 31 July - 11 August 2023 at ICTP, Trieste, Italy.

28th Session of the CLIVAR Scientific Steering Group Held Online on two sessions.

Dr. Antonietta Capotondi, member and former co-chair of the CLIVAR Pacific Region Panel (PRP), was elected as a PICES WG-49 ex officio member and co-chair, representing CLIVAR.


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.

A recent study led by Dr. Lijing Cheng, a member of the CLIVAR Global Synthesis and Observations Panel (GSOP), indicated that 2022 was another year of record heat for the oceans. 

A perspective paper discussing how the research community can promote the enhancement of marine ecosystem forecasting using physical ocean conditions predicted by the GCMs has recently been published in Frontiers in Marine Science by scientists from CLIVAR and PICES communities. 

A cloud-based analysis framework proposed by the Pangeo project was used to systematically assess the realism of the kilometer-scale resolution models, aiming to tackle the existed distribution and analysis challenges of the model output.
