US CLIVAR Hurricanes and Climate
The U.S. CLIVAR Hurricane Working Group was formed in January of 2011 to coordinate efforts to produce a set of model experiments designed to improve understanding of the variability of tropical cyclone formation in climate models.
The scientific objectives of the Hurricane Working Group include:
- an improved understanding of interannual variability and trends in the tropical cyclone activity from the beginning of the 20th century to the present
- quantifying changes in the characteristics of tropical cyclones under a warming climate.
