Recent studies have shown that ocean fronts, especially western boundary currents, can affect the full depth of the overlying troposphere. An important question is whether there is any remote response to this process. The workshop is aimed at improving understanding of the climate response to ocean frontal variability by bringing together modelers and observationalists. The workshop will cover existing work and discuss options for a coordinated plan to progress the research.
