Upcoming workshop: External versus internal variability on decadal and longer time scales

On Wednesday 14th September, the CLIVAR Climate Dynamics Panel (CDP) will launch the first of an intended series of annual CDP workshops. This year’s workshop will target our understanding of internal and externally forced variability in the climate system, their interaction on decadal timescales and longer, and the effects of variability on extreme events. To foster discussion that will stimulate focused research on this important topic, the workshop aims to tackle the following overarching questions:

  • How to isolate the relative contributions of external and internal variability to observed decadal and longer variability?
  • How do the various external forcings modulate internal variability?
  • How to progress in narrowing observational and modeling uncertainties in external and internal variability?
  • What are the effects of external and internal variability on extreme events?

The workshop will be online, and consist of six, weekly 2-hour sessions, from September 14th to October 19th, 2022. The sessions will be on Wednesdays with the timings varying to accommodate participation from different time zones.
