This is to inform you about the upcoming Coordinated Ocean Wave Climate Project (COWCliP) meeting in Notre Dame (Indiana, USA) on October 7th, following the “3rd International Workshop on Waves, Storm Surges, and Coastal Hazards”. This meeting will be hybrid, from 8am to noon EDT (local time).


COWCLIP is a WMO-endorsed international collaborative research project with the aim to raise the profile of wind-waves as a variable in the global climate system - both to foster and support determination of:

  • The effects of historical and future climate variability and change on the wave climate and their extremes, and
  • The feedback influence of waves on the coupled ocean-atmosphere climate system

and support delivery of purposeful wave climate information for marine and coastal users.


Currently, COWCLIP has 4 main tasks:

  • Task 1: Historical variability and change
  • Task 2: Regional wind-wave projections
  • Task 3: Global wind-wave projections
  • Task 4: Coupled wave-general circulation models


In this upcoming meeting, the desired outcome is to:

  • Review the COWCLIP structure 
  • Identify priority activities
  • Decide leads on future activities
  • Discuss responsibility on data sharing - single or multiple data hubs


COWCLIP meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend. If you would like to participate in the upcoming meeting on October 7th please let us know by sending an email to Mercè Casas-Prat ( or Alberto Meucci (  Please also indicate if you plan to attend in person or remotely.
