This Walter Orr Roberts public lecture addresses the important intersection between climate change and climate variability. Dr. Lisa Goddard, research scientist with the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), describes the processes, principally in the ocean, that give rise to decadal-scale variability, the current and future prospects for predicting that variability, and the utility of such predictions in planning for uncertainty.
