    Around the 8-12th day of each month, the CPC makes a monthly assessment of how the state of the global ocean evolved recently; what was the interaction with the atmosphere; and how model predictions verified. This assessment is disseminated using a PPT presentation and conference call. Contact Zeng-Zhen Hu for details on conference call or if you wish to be added to the Monthly Ocean Briefing listserv.
