See report on the symposium

The climate variability has a significant role in the welfare of the human society. Considering the rapidly growing scientific interests in the Indo-Pacific climate variability including a recently defined phenomenon known as El Nino Modoki, this ad hoc symposium is held in Tokyo on March 8-10, 2007 to address issues related to climate variability including the rise in extreme weather conditions under the stress of changing climate. The symposium is promoted by the Climate Variations Research Program (CVRP) of the FRCGC/JAMSTEC under the auspices of Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) through Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), and APCC Climate Center (APCC) to encourage international information exchanges on climate predictability and process studies. The symposium is co-sponsored by the Oceanographic Society of Japan and the Meteorological Society of Japan. In addition to active researchers from Japan, 25 renowned international scientists will attend the symposium.
