When it comes to the weather and climate, most of us think only about what is happening in the atmosphere. If we ignore the ocean, however, we miss a big piece of the picture: covering some 70% of the Earth’s surface, the ocean is a major driver of the world’s weather and climate.
Regional Climate Outlook Forums (RCOFs) produce consensus-based, user-relevant climate outlook products in real time through regional cooperation and partnership in order to reduce climate-related risks and support sustainable development for the coming season in sectors of critical socioeconomic significance for the region in question.

The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has updated the U.S. Climate Normals to the 1991-2020 baseline period to provide a most recent baseline for climate information and services to climate-sensitive sectors and a standard reference to compare variations in temperature, precipitation etc to the 30-year average.
Climate describes the average weather conditions for a particular location and over a long period of time. We study the climate, its variations and extremes, and its influences on a variety of activities including human health, safety and welfare to support evidence-based decision-making on how to best adapt to a changing climate.

A new era of sailing for science is beginning, with support for vital ocean observations from the high-profile round-the-world Vendée Globe yacht race. The first of the IMOCA skippers crossed the finishing line at the end of January, after braving equipment failure and stormy conditions. Ten of them took with them scientific instruments including either drifting buoys that gather climatological information or Argo floats that analyse sea water. During the race they deployed all the drifting buoys and almost all the Argo floats at agreed co-ordinates in the Atlantic.
