The Climate Program Office's David Legler and Kathy Tedesco attended the First Meeting of the Tropical Pacific Observing System (TPOS 2020) Steering Committee in Ansan, Korea.
The TPOS 2020 Project was established to address observing needs in the Tropical Pacific with the aim to oversee the transition of the present observing system to an integrated and more robust and sustainable system through the year 2020 and beyond.
The TPOS 2020 Steering Committee met in Ansan, Korea, from October 6-9, 2014, and was hosted by the Korean Institute of Ocean Science and Technology (KIOST).

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
