The 35th Conference on Climate Variability and Change is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Committee on Climate Variability and Change.

Call for Papers

The science of climate variability and change encompasses a broad range of space and time scales, and brings together a variety of interrelated disciplines. We welcome submissions on all scientific aspects of climate variability and change, including observational, theoretical, and modeling-based approaches. We particularly encourage submissions to the following themed sessions:

  • African Climate Variability and Change;
  • Assessing Atmosphere, Ocean, and Land Interactions focusing on Carbon Uptake and Variability;
  • Atmospheric Rivers: Processes, Impacts, and Uncertainty Quantification;
  • Causes and Consequences of Polar Amplification;
  • Clouds, Radiation, and Climate Sensitivity;
  • El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Dynamics, Predictions, and Impacts;
  • Extratropical Large-Scale Atmospheric Circulation: Dynamics, Variability and Impacts on Extreme Weather;
  • Heat Waves: Mechanisms, Predictability and Prediction;
  • Influence of Decadal Trends on Sub-Seasonal to Seasonal Climate Predictions;
  • Inter-basin Interactions Between the Pacific, the Atlantic, the Indian Ocean, and the Southern Ocean, and Their Impacts on the Global Climate Variability;
  • Ken Mooney’s Legacy;
  • Land Use and Land Cover Change—Interactions with Weather and Climate;
  • Monsoon Dynamics: Variability, Change and Impacts;
  • Security and Resilience Applications with Global Earth System Models;
  • Tropical Pacific decadal variability and trends;
  • Water cycle in a warmer world through process understanding and climate and hydrological modeling

Student Award Opportunities

The Climate Variability and Change Committee welcomes abstract submissions from students. Awards will recognize three outstanding oral and three outstanding poster presentations given by students. To be eligible for the awards, you must be a full-time undergraduate or graduate student enrolled at a university, and you also must be the lead author and presenter of the work. Registrants should indicate their eligibility for student awards when submitting their abstracts.
