Title
The potential of seasonal-to-decadal-scale inter-regional linkages to advance climate prediction
General information
The proposal’s main goal is to investigate the inter-linkages among seasonal-to-decadal-scale variability in Arctic, mid-latitudes and Tropics, their mechanisms and their implications for reliable climate predictions. The international consortium aims at gaining a deeper understanding of the mechanisms leading to seasonal to decadal-scale climate variability at regional scale, focusing on atmospheric and oceanic teleconnections between distant regions that potentially affect extreme climate conditions. We further aim to improve prediction skill on seasonal to decadal time scales and for specific targets such as the East Asian, Indian and African Monsoon systems, Eurasian climate extremes and hiatus-like events.
