The aim of the conference is to present the current state-of-the art in climate research on modes of climate variability and related topics. The conference themes cover the past and current changes in: 1. Tropical Teleconnections, 2. Extratropical Teleconnections, 3. Climatic Impacts of Ocean Circulation Changes, 4. Orbitally Changing Boundary Conditions of Climate Modes, 5. Modes and their Biogeochemical Feedbacks, 6. Past and Future Changes in Climate Modes – the Human Dimension.

The conference presentations will characterize the mechanisms behind the most important modes and teleconnection patterns in the ocean, atmosphere and on land at all latitudes and their changes in the past in order to improve predictability of climate variability in the future. This includes past and future changes of modes and climate variability as well as feedbacks of those changes in climate modes on biogeochemical cycles that may lead to amplification of climate changes.
