The Climate and Ocean – Variability, Predictability and Change – Ocean Model Development Panel (CLIVAR-OMDP), Climate Dynamics Panel (CDP), Pacific Region Panel (PRP), and WESTPAC project on Air-Sea Interaction in the Kuroshio Extension and its Climate Impact (AIKEC) together with Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) are organizing the workshop on the Kuroshio Current and Extension System: Theory, Observations, and Ocean Climate Modeling in Yokohama, Japan from 12-13 January 2016.
The workshop will precede the 2nd Session of OMDP – Extended Meeting on Forcing Ocean-Ice Climate Models that will be held on 14-15 January 2016.
Workshop sessions will address following objectives:
- To assess the state-of-science of the theory, observations, and ocean climate modelling of the Kuroshio Current and Extension systems in the North Pacific Ocean;
- To assess the role of higher resolution to improve simulation of the Kuroshio in ocean climate models;
- To assess and explore possibilities for Kuroshio studies to improve decadal climate prediction capabilities both in the Asia-Pacific and globally.
The registration and abstract submission is open until November 9th.
The registration fee is waived for Early Career Scientists and scientists from developing countries.
