Belmont Forum Climate Services Collaborative Research Action “InterDec”: the Potential of Seasonal-to-decadal-scale Inter-regional Linkages to Advance Climate Predictions

Hisashi Nakamura
Professor, Research Center for Advanced Science and Technoloty

The project aims to deepen the understanding of mechanisms for seasonal-to-decadal-scale climate variability on a regional scale and improve its prediction capability, with focus on atmospheric and oceanic teleconnections between distant regions that could potentially affect regional weather extremely.

The “InterDec” project aims to deepen the understanding of mechanisms for seasonal-to-decadal-scale climate variability on a regional scale, and improve its prediction capability with focus on atmospheric and oceanic teleconnections between distant regions that could potentially affect regional weather extremely.

The Belmont Forum, established in 2009, is a consortium of the world’s major and new funding agencies for global environmental change research and international science councils, aiming to accelerate environmental research activities needed to remove critical barriers against sustainable development by aligning and mobilizing international resources.
