The 3rd Summer School on Tropical Oceans, ENSO and their teleconnections took place at the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy, during July 18-29, 2022. The first week of the school focused on El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO), while the second week was devoted to far-field tropical teleconnections. The school was an initiative of the CLIVAR Pacific Region Panel, which was involved in the design of the scientific program of week one, in collaboration with scientists at ICTP. The school was sponsored by WCRP and CLIVAR. Lecturers and students from the U. S. were supported by US CLIVAR through funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The first week of the school covered key aspects of the ENSO phenomenon, including observations (Dr. Mike McPhaden), ENSO-mean state interactions (Dr. Alexey Fedorov), theory (Dr. Fei-Fei Jin), predictability (Dr. Ben Kirtman), diversity (Dr. Antonietta Capotondi), modeling (Dr. Eric Guilyardi), prediction (Dr. Michelle L'Heureux), societal applications (Dr. Andy Robertson), ENSO decadal modulations (Dr. Andrew Wittenberg) and ENSO future projections (Dr. Agus Santoso).
The school was conducted in hybrid format, with over 100 students from countries on all six continents, including about 35 students on site and up to 70 participants on line on any given day.
