A new field of study, “decadal prediction”, is emerging in climate science. Decadal prediction lies between seasonal/interannual forecasting and longer term climate change projections, and focuses on time-evolving regional climate conditions over the next 10-30 years. Numerous assessments of climate information user needs have identified this timescale as being important to infrastructure planners, water resource managers, and many others. It is central to the information portfolio required to… CONTINUE READING
