Midlatitude air-sea interaction, including the climatic impacts of strong western boundary currents and associated oceanic fronts, is drawing increasing attention from climate science community. These impacts have been studied extensively during a 5-year Japanese "Hotspot Project" launched in 2010. An overview and the main outcomes of this project are introduced in this Town Hall Meeting. We will discuss how the community can utilize the unique data obtained by the intensive observation campaigns around the Kuroshio Extension, and how we can coordinate international collaborations in future. Grab your lunch and join us for a lively discussion on the “hotspots of our climate system”.
