Climate-Weather Interface

Weather-climate graphs

Climate-Weather Interface (CWI) - Research focus lies in evaluation of the current ocean observing systems and their effectiveness for monitoring patterns of significant global climate variability and tropical air-sea interaction, with the goals of assisting the prediction of seasonal weather and extreme climate events.  Research activities include investigating how weather and climate are connected through subseasonal variability and how observations should be made to benefit subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) prediction.
