PACLIM is a multidisciplinary workshop that broadly addresses the climatic phenomena occurring in the eastern Pacific Ocean and western North America. The purpose of the workshop is to understand climate effects in this region by bringing together specialists from diverse fields including physical, social, and biological sciences. Time scales from weather to the Quaternary are addressed in oral and poster presentations.   We welcome oral and poster presentations on the years theme and as always welcome presentations (oral and poster)  related to the general theme of climate and the Pacific.

28th & 29th Pacific Climate Workshop (PACLIM) Proceedings Call for Papers

The twenty-eighth Pacific Climate Workshop (PACLIM 2017) entitled “Pacific meets Atlantic: Ocean-Atmosphere Interactions” included stimulating presentations on global topics ranging from global atmospheric reorganization and the effect of heat transport on marine productivity to smaller-scale discussions of atmospheric rivers and storm tracks across the western US. The PACLIM 2019 will focus on the weather and climate of Extreme Events. The past year has been marked by extreme heat, wildfires, landslide and flooding events.  These events are related to immediate weather conditions as well as recent historic drought conditions. 

Since 1989, the PACLIM proceedings volumes have provided a venue for the publication of research focused on the eastern Pacific Ocean and western North America. The proceedings volume is a peer-reviewed issue of Quaternary International, a well-known, widely distributed Elsevier journal. This journal has undergone some management changes over the last year and a half which has delayed new special issues, however, I am pleased to announce that the journal is now accepting manuscripts for our PACLIM proceedings volume. The deadline for manuscript submission is June 15th, 2019. When submitting your manuscript via the Elsevier site please identify it as a PACLIM special volume manuscript.
