AI53A:
Impacts of Interbasin Interaction on Climate Variability and Extreme Events I Panel

Session ID#: 93415

Session Description:
The Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans play important roles in modulating climate variability and extreme weather events.  Ocean-atmosphere interactions within each of these three oceans generates various climate phenomena, including El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO), the tropical Atlantic variability modes (Atlantic Niño and meridional modes), the Atlantic multidecadal oscillation (AMO) and the Indian Ocean dipole (IOD).  These climate phenomena affect regional climate, extreme weather events and even global warming.  Furthermore, interaction among these three oceans, together with ocean-atmosphere coupling, can trigger and modulate climate variability and then affect climate predictability and extreme events such as tropical cyclones, heat waves, flooding and drought.  For example, changes in the Indian and Atlantic Oceans have the potential to affect ENSO and influence tropical cyclones in the western Pacific.  This session invites submissions under the broad subject of inter-basin interaction and the impacts on climate variability and extreme events.  The session will provide a platform for interaction among oceanographers, atmospheric scientists, climatologists and those working in other disciplines.
