PA51A:
Climate Research to Applications: Realizing Societal Benefits of Information from US CLIVAR Science Posters


Session ID#: 8820

Session Description:
For over 15 years, the US CLIVAR program has fostered the understanding, monitoring, and prediction of climate variability and change on intraseasonal-to-centennial timescales through coordinated research activities. This session will highlight efforts under the new US CLIVAR science plan to address the challenges of communicating the climate knowledge generated by its activities and to collaborate with research and operational communities that might use this climate knowledge for understanding the range of future climate risks. 

This session invites contributions that describe linkages between US CLIVAR’s past or ongoing science activities with efforts to identify and communicate useable knowledge to end-users. Contributions are particularly sought that connect US CLIVAR activities (e.g. observational analyses, process studies, diagnostics of climate change projections and subseasonal-to-interannual predictions, as well as understanding variability and changes in drought, weather extremes, ocean and atmospheric modes, and sea level rise) to boundary organizations who link scientific understanding to decision-making needs.
