The Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program will host a webinar series on decadal variability and predictability, beginning September 2015. This series is based on recently funded projects in this area. These projects were selected to explore "the role and inherent predictability of coupled ocean-atmosphere interactions in the global climate system over sub-decadal and longer timescales with an emphasis on climatic impacts over North America" to improve NOAA's ability to predict climate at the decadal timescale and to inform the most recent IPCC Assessment Report as well as other assessments such as the National Climate Assessment.

You must register for each webinar session you would like to attend separately, by using the links in the table below. If you would like to be added to the e-mail list for updates on CVP webinars, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page. These webinars will be recorded and the video will be available on this page after the presentation. We look forward to your participation in this series.

For questions about the webinar series, please contact Hunter Jones (hunter.jones@noaa.gov).

About Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP)

A vital part of CPO's Earth System Science and Modeling (ESSM) Division, the CVP Program supports research to provide a process-level understanding of the climate system through observation, modeling, analysis, and field studies. This understanding is needed to improve climate models and predictions so that scientists can better anticipate the impacts of future climate variability and change.  Learn more...

Global warming precipitation accumulation increases above the current-climate cutoff scale

A CPO-funded study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests intensifying precipitation may change with atmospheric temperature changes.
