The "WCRP-CLIVAR Workshop on Climate Interactions among the Tropical Basins" was held online on February 24-26, 2021. It was the first workshop organised by the CLIVAR Tropical Basin Interaction group, with logistic assistance from the US CLIVAR Project Office and UCAR, as well as financial support from NOAA and NSF.

As a La Niña event intensifies in the Pacific, bringing increased rain to parts of Australia and a powerful hurricane season to the Tropical Atlantic, a new book reveals the dynamics and impacts of the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO), the irregular cycle that switches the Pacific Ocean between these cool La Niña and warm El Niño events.
Research brief: Assessing surface heat flux products from observations over the Australian sector of the Southern OceanNovember 25, 2019 1:15 pm Comments Off on Research brief: Assessing surface heat flux products from observations over the Australian sector of the Southern Ocean
To better understand the biases and ultimately improve the quality of our climate records, CLEX researches and their collaborators undertook in situ measurements using the NOAA Physical Sciences Division flux system during the Clouds, Aerosols, Precipitation, Radiation, and Atmospheric Composition over the Southern Ocean (CAPRICORN) experiment in 2016.
In this study, CLEX researchers use two years of measurements from a flux mooring combined with satellite data and model outputs to understand the seasonal changes in air‐sea fluxes and the role of ocean currents in controlling ocean surface temperatures in the southeast Indian Ocean.
In May this year, Maxime Marin with a team from CLEX took part in the International Indian Ocean Expedition (IIOE 2) aboard the RV Investigator. With good weather most of the way, it was an experience he recalls with great fondness.
