The article provides information on Monsoon Climate Systems workshop, which is sponsored by the World Climate Research Program on June 15 to 17, 2005 at the University of California, Irvine. The workshop gathers experts to assess the current understanding of monsoon variability and the problems simulating the monsoon. It also consists of modeling and observations presented by representatives of Climate Variability and Predictability monsoon panels and Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment projects.

    The development of widespread anoxic conditions in the deep oceans is evidenced by the accumulation and preservation of organic-carbon-rich sediments, but its precise cause remains controversial. The two most popular hypotheses involve (1) circulation-induced increased stratification resulting...
