Current Situation and Outlook During the second half of 2016, tropical Pacific Ocean surface temperatures were at borderline weak La Niña/cool-neutral levels. Many atmospheric ENSO indicators also approached or exceeded...

Conference puts spotlight on interactions between global warming, associated sea level rise, coastal impacts and options for adaptation New York, 6 July 2017 – The consequences of climate change for sea level rise will be in the spotlight at a major international research conference which will seek to assess past, present and future regional sea-level change and its impacts on coastal communities.

Better observations needed to protect environment and save lives Progress and challenges in improving maritime safety and services, strengthening environmental protection and expanding ocean observing systems are on the agenda of an intergovernmental commission of meteorologists and oceanographers. The meeting also aims to agree a roadmap for future priorities.

Sea surface temperatures in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean have recently cooled to weak La Niña levels. Similarly, most atmospheric indicators are now consistent with the early stages of a La Niña event. Climate models indicate that weak La Niña conditions are likely to persist into the first quarter of 2018. A return to ENSO-neutral conditions before early 2018 is less likely, while the emergence of El Niño before the second quarter of 2018 appears very remote. National Meteorological and Hydrological Services will continue to closely monitor changes in the state of ENSO over the coming...

As a token of its commitment to gender equality and the empowerment of women, the WMO-IOC Joint Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) kicked off its fifth session with a Women’s Marine Leadership Workshop. Twenty-four female marine meteorologists and oceanographers from 22 countries joined the two-day event which took place at the WMO Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, on 21 and 22 October 2017. The majority participated in the subsequent Marine Technical Conference and JCOMM-5, thus gaining invaluable hands-on experience in participating in international...

ENSO neutral conditions currently prevail in the tropical Pacific Ocean, despite sea surface temperatures being near the El Niño threshold. Most climate models surveyed indicate that ENSO-neutral conditions will continue through July-September 2017, followed by a 50-60% chance of a continuation of ENSO-neutral during the subsequent months of 2017. The development of El Niño conditions is slightly less likely, while the emergence of La Niña appears unlikely. National Meteorological and Hydrological Services will continue to closely monitor changes in the state of ENSO over the coming months.
