establish a community working group focused on coordinated ocean-wave climate projections (COWCLIP) created an opportunity to discuss the current status of international activities in wind-wave climate research. Here, we document the community perspective of key scientific questions, challenges, and recommendations relevant to wind-waves in a changing climate. Four themes are addressed: historical wave climate variability and change, global wave climate projections, regional wave climate projections

); allowing time for small group discussions related to the effects of drought and their interconnectedness to other aspects of human and natural systems; including a variety of viewpoints through diversity in demographics, cultural backgrounds, and interests (e.g., federal, state, and local agencies, Native communities, academia, and the private sector); and extending engagement beyond the meeting with continued feedback on developing regional drought metrics. FINDINGS. Drought awareness and education. A

spatially and temporally. Thus, products from data assimilation and model simulations are the major tools to study changes in and over the ocean. Progress in ocean observation, data assimilation, and climate model simulations [including CMIPs, NCAR Community Earth System Model (CESM) Large Ensemble Numerical Simulations (LENS), and the high-resolution WRF regional climate model] were highlighted. Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) variability based on LENs was discussed. Arctic sea ice

observations. We can, however, look for these physical effects in quantities other than the TOA radiative flux. Notably, we can consider the direct impact of a CO 2 change on precipitation in the absence of any global-mean (or ocean mean) change. We should note, however, that because precipitation patterns are sensitive to small changes in the temperature pattern, we would expect regional precipitation changes to be relatively forcing dependent even in the absence of adjustments—for example, a forcing

Satellite-derived estimates of phytoplankton size structure are in good agreement with the in situ measurements, and also capture the spatial variability related to regional mesoscale dynamics ( Gittings et al. 2019b ). iReds outputs were also used along with in situ and satellite observations to investigate the basin ecological responses to the combined effects of biogeochemical and physical environmental stressors ( Ellis et al

Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystems Research (CILER), and Environment Canada (EC) convened a workshop on Great Lakes hydrological modeling with an emphasis on improving regional hydrological and hydrodynamic science. Workshop presentations and discussions collectively underscored the following three motivating themes for current and future research: utilizing investments in monitoring infrastructure and model development from the recently completed International Upper Great Lakes Study

vorticity and anomalous potential vorticity forcing near the tropopause within the westerly flow. These effects enhanced the meridional circulation of the Asian summer monsoon and influenced circulation in the Northern Hemisphere ( Wu et al. 2016 ; Y. M. Liu et al. 2013 ). Moreover, analysis of the results from the regional climate model (RCM) experiments with and without a diurnal cycle of solar radiation show that a diurnal variation in solar radiation increases the sensible heat flux at the ground

monsoon, some of the most intense convection and thunderstorms occur as a result of strong diurnal forcing during the build-up and break periods instead of the active period of the monsoon. Reviews of regional processes contributing to localized flooding include the diurnally driven circulations and topographic effects in a flash-flood thunderstorm over the Taipei basin, the regional- and synoptic-scale conditions associated with heavy precipitation systems over the Amazon and southern South America
