The coordinated ocean wave climate projections (COWCLIP) workshop was supported by the World Climate Research Programme and the Joint Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO. The meeting was held in April 2011 at the WMO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Workshop presentations are available at www.jcomm.info/cowclip.
