Asia-Pacific Climate: Past, Present, and Future I

Session ID#: 9113

Session Description:
The Asia-Pacific climate affects millions of people and is marked by a multitude of climate phenomena including diurnal, monsoon intraseasonal and interannual variations, El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD), decadal variability and secular changes. The important role of air-sea interactions in climate variability in the region have been shown and investigations have progressed further with high-resolution numerical models. From a larger point of view, the importance of inter-basin interaction and tropical-midlatitude interaction has been suggested. This session will present contributions that combine observations and modeling of these topics. Studies that link various climate modes are particularly welcomed.
