Decadal Variability & Predictability Webinars

 

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. 

Sign up to learn of future CVP Webinars.

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 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.
