OAR labs and programs will present on NOAA’s Tropical Pacific Observing System (TPOS) Equatorial Pacific Experiment (TEPEX) field campaign plans to potential international collaborators over the upcoming weeks. TEPEX is an international effort to improve the understanding and prediction of processes in the tropical Pacific, which have consequences for global weather and climate. The Climate Program Office’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) Program supports TEPEX through modeling and pre-field planning.  

NOAA’s Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing (GOMO) program manager, Cheyenne Steinbarger, will present opportunities for TEPEX collaboration during a visit to the Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology. NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory scientist Meghan Cronin, supported by CVP, will present opportunities for TEPEX collaboration at the WCRP/GEWEX Open Science Conference in Japan (July 8-12). CVP anticipates supporting the implementation of the TEPEX field campaigns, planned by cross-OAR lab and science community collaborations. TEPEX builds on a decade of investments across NOAA and advances NOAA’s Precipitation Grand Challenge and contributes to the WCRP/GEWEX Global Precipitation EXperiment.
