|This conference is a follow-on to the III International Conference on ENSO: “Bridging the gaps between Global ENSO Science and regional processes, extremes and impacts” held in November 2014; the Second International “Workshop on ENSO, Decadal Variability and Climate Change in South America: Trends, teleconnections and potential impacts” held in October 2010; and the First International ENSO Conference: “The El Niño phenomenon and its global impact” in May 2005, All held in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Main goal of the conference:
To review the progress on the science of ENSO with a focus on examining the range of ENSO “flavors” (especially in regard to the longitudinal variations of warming), assess the existence of possible, and distinct precursors to the different flavors, an examine how the different oceanic and atmospheric processes that drive the different ENSO flavors and impact their predictability would vary in a warming world.
I. ENSO observations, including analysis of recent events
II. ENSO dynamics
III.ENSO and other modes of climate variability (intraseasonal, decadal, centennial)
IV. ENSO modeling and prediction
V. ENSO impacts and Regional processes
VI. Climate Information and sustainable development and future of climate and ocean science
Venue: Auditorium of Department of Electrical Engineering, Gustavo Galindo Campus, ESPOL, Guayaquil
