The Pacific Climate Workshop (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. The meeting is held every other year.

 As of 2024, the meeting will be organized by committee through the newly formed non-profit Friends of PACLIM to keep the bi-annual meeting in perpetuity. Organizing a conference is a tremenoud amount of unrecognized work, and we thank the most recent organizers, Scott Mensing and Michelle Goman, along with Scott Starratt, for their commitment to keeping PACLIM and the Proceedings going over the years, and for continuing to share their depth of knowledge and experience in organizing the 2025 conference.
