Information About YMC
The goal of the "Years of the Maritime Continent (YMC)" is to expedite the progress of improving understanding and prediction of local multi-scale variability of the MC weather-climate system and its global impact through observations and modeling exercises.
2017 - 2020
Several intensive observing periods (IOPs) have been planned for this period. Others may be added beyond 2020.
