New CVP Webinar Series Will Highlight Results from Recent Tropical Pacific Research


The NOAA/CPO Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) Program will host a webinar series on the Tropical Pacific Observing System (TPOS) Pre-Field Modeling Studies that will highlight the recent results from the CVP-funded projects. The goal of these modeling studies is to refine the current scientific understanding of the equatorial Pacific climate system, with a specific focus on two process studies identified in the TPOS 2020 First Report, “Pacific Upwelling and Mixing Physics (PUMP)” and “Air–sea Interaction at the eastern edge of the Warm Pool (EEWP)”. Their results will assist in the planning of future field campaigns.

The five-session webinar series starts on Thursday, September 22, 2022 and ends on Thursday, November 10, 2022. All sessions will be held at 3:00PM Eastern and each will feature 2 presentations. See below for the complete schedule. All sessions will be recorded and will be available online afterwards.

Attendees will need to register for the series using this link. You only need to do so once, as the GoToWebinar platform will automatically register you for all 5 sessions. We look forward to your participation in this series.

For more information, contact Jose Algarin.
