4th Preparatory Meeting of the WCRP-CLIVAR Workshop on Climate Interactions among the Tropical Basins

The Planning Team of the ‘WCRP-CLIVAR Workshop on Climate Interactions among the Tropical Basins’ organized its 4th meeting on February 3rd, 2021. The CLIVAR TBI RF co-chairs, staff from the ICPO and the US CLIVAR Project Office, meeting planners and multimedia expert from UCAR attended the meeting.

As the workshop coming soon, the team is finalizing most of the preparatory work and is planning for a dry run. Main outcomes are:

  • The platform for poster presentation has been determined. Guidelines for poster submission will be ready this week.
  • The discussion parts of the workshop will not be recorded to allow participants to exchange ideas more freely.
  • Besides the Webex chat, there will be Slack channels for participants to interact with each other. But the channels will not be actively moderated during the workshop.
  • The Science Organizing Committee is now working on the questions for the breakout sessions.

The next telecon will be held on February 10th, 2021.
