    Workshop I
    SCAR - Tropic Antarctic Teleconnections (TATE) workshop: Linking Poles to the Tropics

    25 October 2021

    In conjunction with the 9th Malaysia International Seminar on Antarctica (MISA9), October 2021, workshop on Tropical Antarctic Teleconnections TATE) with the theme : Teleconnection: Linking polar to the tropical region will be held on the 25 October 2021.

    Teleconnections refer to the statistically significant climate variability links between non-contiguous geographic areas. Understanding these teleconnections have become extremely important to climate science in the face of a rapidly warming world.

    The workshop aims to enhance understanding of advances in research on tropical–polar teleconnections and review our current understanding of the processes linking the tropics to Antarctica, which are not well understood yet critical to the future trajectory of the Antarctic climate.

    This workshop is co-sponsored by Tropical Antarctic Teleconnections (TATE), the action group under Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR).
