the 1st international advanced hands-on workshop on the role of equatorial waves in weather extremes in the Maritime Continent

The Maritime Continent* experiences various extreme weather events, including floods, extreme rainfall, droughts, and even tropical cyclones. During the workshop, we will focus on comprehending the influence of equatorial waves in driving these weather extremes.

*The Maritime Continent is a term used to describe the region between the Indian and Pacific Oceans including the archipelagos of Indonesia, Borneo, New Guinea, the Philippine Islands, the Malay Peninsula, and the surrounding seas.


In recent years, there has been a growing number of research studies indicating that equatorial waves are responsible for triggering weather extremes in the Maritime Continent.

This finding is crucial because understanding the factors behind these extremes can enhance the predictability of such events and ensure the safety of people.
