THESIS: Understanding the predictability of marine heatwaves

Yuxin\'s PhD project is aiming to investigate marine heatwave predictability around the world across a range of time scales, based on observations, reanalyses, CMIP6 prediction runs (i.e. the next generation of global climate simulations), and dedicated model experiments. This project could help to forecast marine heatwaves with greater confidence and on longer timescales.
