Synopsis

GOALS (Global Ocean-Atmosphere-Land System) for Predicting Seasonal-to-Interannual Climate A Program of Observation, Modeling, and Analysis by Climate Research Committee, Environment and Resources Commission on Geosciences, Division on Earth and Life Studies, National Res

This book lays out a science plan for a major, international, 15-year research program. The past 10 years have seen significant progress in studies of short-term climate variations, in particular for the region of the tropical Pacific Ocean and the El Nino/Southern Oscillation phenomenon. Some forecast skill with lead times as long as a year in advance has already been developed and put to use. The GOALS program plans to capitalize on this progress by expanding efforts on observations and seasonal-to-interannual predictions to the remainder of the tropics and to higher latitudes.
