Decadal climate predictions describe trends in climate development for the next few years up to a decade. They close the gap between short-term weather forecasts, seasonal climate forecasts and long-term climate projections. Such dependencies are used to generate climate information for the coming years up to a decade.

## What is decadal climate variability?

Decadal climate variability (DCV) – the variations in global and regional climate that distinguish one decade from another – is of relevance to our complex modern society. DCV can arise from internal interactions within the climate system, and in response to external forcing such as clusters of volc.

Do seasonal to decadal climate predictions underestimate the predictability of the real world?

Seasonal-to-decadal predictions are inevitably uncertain, depending on the size of the predictable signal relative to unpredictable chaos. Consequently, most deterministic and probabilistic measures underestimate potential skill and idealized model experiments underestimate predictability.

### What is the meaning of decadal?

Decadal is used to describe something that involves or lasts for a decade or a period of 10 consecutive years, as in a decadal growth rate. Decadal is mostly used to describe something that lasted for 10 years, occurred over 10 years, or is concerned with a time period of 10 years.

The climate system exhibits variability on a variety of timescales. Over much of the ocean the spectra of sea surface temperature and salinity are red, broadly consistent with the ocean acting to integrate atmospheric white noise forcing.

What is a Centurial year?

: relating to 100 years : marking or beginning a century the centurial years 1600 and 1700.

## What do you call a meeting that happens twice a week?

Original: “Biweekly means once every two weeks or twice a week. Bimonthly means once every two months or twice a month… Semiweekly means twice a week.

## How many leap years does first 100 years have?

Given year is divided by 4, and the quotient gives the number of leap years. But, as 100 is not a leap year ⇒ 25 – 1 = 24 leap years.

How many odd days are there in 100 years?

124 odd days
So odd days in 100 years will be (76 x 1 + 24 x 2) which is 124 odd days. This can also be written as 17 weeks + 5 days. So every 100 years will have 5 odd days.

### Is biweekly same as fortnightly?

As adjectives the difference between fortnightly and biweekly. is that fortnightly is occurring once in a fortnight; once every two weeks while biweekly is occurring once every two weeks.

### What is the difference between biannual and semiannual?

Some people prefer to use semiannual to refer to something that occurs twice a year, reserving biannual for things that occur once every two years.

Why there are 24 leap years in 100 years?

The years which is exactly divided by 100 then it is not leap year such as 2100,2200 etc except if it can be exactly divided by 400 such as 2000 , 2400.In given question 100, 200 and 300 years are not leap year as they divide exactly by 100 but 400 is leap year from the given condition.So we get 24 leap years from 100 …
