Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAIV, volume 82)

The enthusiasm for engaging the challenges of Seasonal to Interannual Prediction, both within the disciplines of physical and social sciences and at their interface, was well demonstrated through the energetic engagement of all during the May to June 2005 NATO ASI course, upon which this book is based. Several panel sessions were held during the course, which permitted everyone to offer views within an informal setting; some, not reflected in the main body of the book, are incorporated in this chapter. Little stays stationary in such a fast-developing field, and so, to provide the most advanced position at publication, this summarising chapter has included some of the latest development to supplement the material drawn from the course presentations and the panel discussions. Additionally, a view to the future is offered so as to provide further stimulation to those interested in the fascinating field of Seasonal to Interannual Climate.
