APCC Held the 2020 Climate Prediction Workshop (CPW 2020)
The APEC Climate Center (APCC) held the 2020 Climate Prediction Workshop (CPW 2020) on the topic: “The Now & Future of Climate Prediction Technology Development” at the Busan Exhibition & Convention Center (BEXCO) in Haeundae, Busan on July 9th, 2020.APCC's CPW 2020 was held to provide a platform to enable domestic climate prediction experts to share their latest research achievements and experiences regarding key issues in the field of climate prediction. During the workshop, participants had the chance to participate in in-depth discussions on the direction of climate prediction technology development. This workshop aims to contribute to producing and providing climate prediction information with low uncertainty and high reliability. Representatives from various government and climate prediction related institutes such as the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA), National Institute of Meteorological Sciences (NIMS), Universities, and more, attended the CPW 2020.APCC hopes that this workshop will promote the production of optimal climate forecast information. Effective monitoring of abnormal climate events, such as heat waves and typhoons, can help reduce damages to the national economy, lives, and property.APCC's CPW 2020 was conducted in compliance with strict quarantine measures to prevent COVID-19 infection.

APCC Commenced Its Boreal Summer Intraseasonal Oscillation Forecast for the Year 2020 from 1 May, 2020.
The APEC Climate Center (APCC) commenced its Boreal Summer Intraseasonal Oscillation (BSISO) forecast for the year 2020 at its website from 1 May, 2020.BSISO forecast plays an important role in predicting the beginning and the characteristics of the Asian summer monsoon. The Oscillation is a large-scale convection, with a period of 15 to 60 days. It originates over the Indian Ocean, gradually traveling eastward as well as north with a diverse structure. It affects the beginning of the Asian summer monsoon, circulation of atmosphere, and weather patterns.Also, BSISO forecast provides information that helps predict dry and wet seasons in Asia by tracing large scale zones of precipitation. It plays an important role in predicting hydrometeorological extreme weather phenomena. Users can therefore prepare for disasters like heavy rainfall, drought, and heat wave.Starting this year, APCC launched new contents of BSISO forecast. BSISO impact anomaly shows local impact of BSISO activity over the Asian monsoon region for various variables such as temperature, precipitation, wind and so on. Also, users are able to download forecast indices from participating models and find model information. It is expected that these new contents help users get more intuitive and useful information.APCC first provided BSISO forecast services at its website, in cooperation with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the Working Group on Numerical Experimentation (WGNE) and the Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO) Task Force on July 1, 2013.BSISO Forecast Website : http://www.apcc21.org/ser/casts.do?lang=en
