We would like to call your attention to the session titled "GC015 Decadal Climate Predictions for Hydroclimatic Risk Management: State of the Science and User Needs" at the forthcoming AGU Annual Meeting, 3-7 December 2012, in San Francisco.

Session description:
 Climate over the next decade will be dominated by natural variability rather than anthropogenic forcing. Predictability at decadal timescales is challenging but critical for decision makers in water resources, energy, and environment, especially in the face of persistent flood/drought conditions. This session aims to promote a dialog between climate scientists and risk managers. We welcome presentations on climate needs for improved flood/drought preparedness, risk management or decision systems for interannual-to-decadal time horizons, and advances in decadal climate predictions, including sources of predictability tied to terrestrial prediction skill and assessments of model reliability.
