Title: Pacific Climate Variability: Dynamical Processes Affecting the Ocean-Atmosphere System Along the U.S. West Coast
Access Code: 282 627 017
Abstract: The dynamical mechanisms associated with climate variations such as PDO, NPGO and ENSO will be discussed in the context of their influence on the California Current and the regional climate of the U.S. West Coast, with particular emphasis on their ability to organize patterns of ecosystem response in the ocean. Elements of this physical variability that have the largest potential for exploiting predictable signals will be highlighted.
