In recent years much progress has been made in our understanding of the large-scale physical dynamics of Pacific climate variability and change. New modes of ocean and atmospheric variability over the Pacific have been recognized and shown to influence ecosystem processes. Working Group 27 (WG27; was established during the Hawaii intercessional meeting in April 2011 with the goal of “developing essential understandings of the mechanisms of North Pacific climate variability & change that can better guide the formulation of process-based hypotheses underlying the links between ecosystem dynamics and physical climate.”
