Parc 55 Hotel, San Francisco
NGEE-Tropics took advantage of the 2015/2016 ENSO to accelerate our tropical forest observations and measurements during an extreme climate event to inform our model development aimed at improving predictive understanding of tropical forests in a changing climate. The purpose of the NGEE-Tropics ENSO Research Meeting is to review the ENSO science results, data, and model developments achieved to date; to identify gaps/challenges and opportunities for collaborative synthesis; and to plan for the development of ENSO publications and products in the coming year. We are holding our meeting the day before the 2016 AGU Fall Meeting.
