A meeting had two discussions which focuses on the discussions of oceanic overturning circulation and tropical cyclones. The first forum described the observational needs as well as the modeling and decadal prediction of the thermohaline circulation (THC) or the meridional overturning circulation (MOC). It has been shown that recent MOC exhibits its large seasonal variations which makes its long-term trends very difficult to detect. The second forum highlights the best way to advance the understanding towards tropical cyclone behavior with the use of modeling experiments and reconstructions from the geological record. Furthermore, some discussions include the research that involves the areas that may be affected by future hurricane activity while also considering that more people should be into the studies of coastal overwash deposits.
