CLIVAR Pan American Climate Studies (PACS)

Background

The principal goal of the Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) Pan American Climate Studies (PACS) is to extend the scope and improve the skill of operational seasonal-to-interdecadal climate prediction over the Americas. Forecasts on these time scales allow decision makers time to anticipate climate effects and develop strategies to mitigate impacts. Industries such as energy, agriculture, resource management, tourism, and construction can benefit from improved understanding of climate processes in this region. ETL contributes to PACS through studies of the regional atmosphere-ocean dynamics from ship and satellite based instruments.
