[A-CG07] Asia-Pacific climate variations on diurnal to secular time scales
Tue. May 24, 2016 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Asia-Pacific climate affects billions of people and is marked by spatiotemporal interactions among a broad range of variabilities. This session aims to promote cross-cutting discussion over multitude of phenomena, including diurnal, monsoon intraseasonal and interannual variations, (inter-)decadal variability and secular changes. The importances of tropical and midlatitude air-sea coupling, inter-basin and tropics-midlatitude interactions for climate variability in the region have been established and are being further investigated using high-resolution observations and numerical models. Studies elucidating the complex interactions among climate modes and processes are particularly welcomed.
