DYNAMO Webinars

 

The Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program hosted monthly webinars to share the results of the Dynamics of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (DYNAMO) field campaign. This field campaign, held in the Indian Ocean from 2011-2012, sought to improve our understanding of the Madden-Julian Oscillation and to improve prediction skill of climate and weather models. It was a large international collaborative effort involving 14 countries and many U.S. agencies and research universities. These webinars represent the results of NOAA-funded researchers and are intended to inform a broad scientific audience of the research outcomes and ongoing efforts and questions related to understanding the Madden-Julian Oscillation.

Abstracts for each presentation can be found in the Climate Variability & Predictability project archives.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
