The conference focuses on the CLIVAR program’s successes and future challenges. These include consideration of the broader climate research environment and how best to contribute the knowledge, products, and information brought about by CLIVAR to those who could best use it in decision- and policy-making.
The Conference is comprised of a series of half-day sessions focused on specific themes (program):
• Short-term (seasonal-to-interannual) prediction
• The monsoon systems
• The challenge of decadal prediction
• Understanding long-term climate variations
• The role of the oceans in climate
• Human influence on climate
• CLIVAR science and societal benefits
• Future challenges for CLIVAR
Each session will highlight the accomplishments, breadth, and challenges of its respective theme through the presentation of a stimulating white paper developed by an expert international team, followed by invited presentations on more specific issues.
A major feature of each session will be the viewing of posters, which will provide an opportunity for CLIVAR scientists from all over the world to meet and discuss the latest developments in the field with their colleagues.
To make the best use of available time and because of the anticipated large number of abstract submissions, all contributed papers will be in the form of posters.
