Over the Northwestern Pacific, extreme ocean events such as marine heat waves and cold water surges are becoming more frequent and intensifying. These extremes events are caused by change in the subtropical ocean circulation or the atmospheric circulation which in turn affected by high-latitude or tropical air-sea interaction. 

To understand the governing dynamics, we analyze atmospheric and oceanographic data and measure air-sea interactions over the Bering Sea and tropical western Pacific using a buoy, wave gliders and research vessels. To make ~10 days prediction, we build a high resolution regional air-sea coupled climate prediction system over the North Pacific. In addition, we are to build a seasonal ocean prediction system using an earth system model and machine learning techniques. 

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme ForeSea – The Ocean Prediction Capacity of the Future
