The Ocean and Climate Change : Workshop Reports/Summaries
The Division hosts many workshops, symposia, and other meetings that provide information or bring together policy-makers, members of industry, scientists, and the general public to discuss timely issues. Discussions at workshops and other events are often published in workshop summaries, websites, newsletters, and other formats to preserve and make publicly accessible the information or discussions from the event.
Frontiers in Decadal Climate Variability: Proceedings of a Workshop (2016)
A number of studies indicate an apparent slowdown in the overall rise in global average surface temperature between roughly 1998 and 2014. Most models did not predict such a slowdown--a fact that stimulated a lot of new research on variability of Earth's climate system. At a September 2015 workshop, leading scientists gathered to discuss current understanding of climate variability on decadal timescales (10 to 30 years) and whether and ho... More >>
Oceanography in 2025: Proceedings of a Workshop (2009)
What research and technology needs, trends, and barriers might affect oceanography in 2025? Scientists, engineers, and technologists participated in a January 2009 workshop, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, to include the perspective of the research community for U.S. Navy and Marine strategies for the 2025 timeframe. Physical processes of the ocean, including drivers of temperature, salinity, and currents, were emphasized. Specifi... More >>
