Holbrook, Neil J. and Li, Jianping and Collins, Matthew and Di Lorenzo, Emanuele and Jin, Fei-Fei and Knutson, Thomas and Latif, Mojib and Li, Chongyin and Power, Scott B. and Huang, Rhonghui and Wu, Guoxiong (2014) Decadal climate variability and cross-scale interactions: ICCL 2013 Expert Assessment Workshop.

The International Commission on Climate (ICCL), one of 10 international commissions of the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS) of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), held an Expert Assessment Workshop on 'Decadal Climate Variability and Cross-Scale Interactions' in Beijing, China, from 16 to 17 April 2013. The workshop aimed to assess and document key issues and knowledge gaps associated with decadal-scale climate variability and cross-scale interactions in a warming world. The international workshop brought together participants from seven countries including Australia, China, Germany, Nigeria, Pakistan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Eleven invited speakers from five of these countries, and more than 30 faculty members and postgraduate students from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and National Climate Center, attended the workshop. The workshop was organized around four key themes, or research questions: 1) Is the interdecadal Pacific oscillation (IPO) a real and dynamic feature of the climate system? 2) Cross-scale interactions between El Niño– Southern Oscillation (ENSO), decadal variability, and anthropogenic climate change. 3) Unambiguous detection and attribution of anthropogenic climate change above natural decadal to multidecadal climate variability—how best to do this? 4) Decadal modes on regional climates—focusing on the Asian monsoon.
