Coastal Climate Signal Task Team

Goals and Rationale

In August of 2023, the IOOC established a task team called the Coastal Climate Signal Task Team charged with advancing the recommendations developed at the joint IOOC & US CLIVAR Workshop: Optimizing Ocean Observing Networks for Detecting the Coastal Climate Signal. This joint workshop will bring together representatives from ocean and coastal observing systems and researchers to identify the key science issues that need to be resolved in order to detect and respond to coastal climate change in the coming decades. Details on the workshop are listed below.
