The El-Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is a strong driver of significant weather and climate anomalies across the globe. ENSO is probably one of the most studied phenomena in climate research, but there are still many open research questions, which will be discussed in this school.
 
ENSO teleconnections continue to be an area of very active research. They include not only effects on the circulation over the mid-latitudes (Europe, Asia, North America, South America), but also a strong influence on the Asian Monsoon. The Monsoon also has its own set of teleconnections not all of which are related to ENSO. It will be very helpful for researchers and students alike to learn the latest advances in the understanding of ENSO dynamics and its broad range of teleconnections. One emphasis of this workshop will be the Asian Monsoon, which is a complex phenomenon of great importance to the regional agriculture and hence to the well-being of a very significant population. In recent years there has been an advance in understanding of how the Monsoon is affected by, and interacts with, the tropical ocean basins, the adjoining land masses, mid-latitudes and the stratosphere.
 
Topics:
  • Tropical ocean (ENSO) dynamics, including phenomenology
  • ENSO theory, modeling, prediction
  • Decadal Variability and long term trends
  • ENSO teleconnections
  • Decadal variations of interannual teleconnections
  • Inter-basin connections
  • Tropical-extratropical teleconnections
