The Pacific Climate Workshop (PACLIM) is a multidisciplinary workshop that broadly addresses the climatic phenomena occurring in the eastern Pacific Ocean and western North America. The purpose of the workshop is to understand climate effects in this region by bringing together specialists from diverse fields including physical, social, and biological sciences. Time scales from to the millennial-scale Pleistocene variability to current temperature and precipitation records are addressed in oral and poster presentations.

The theme of the 2013 PACLIM workshop addresses the impact that long-term changes in climate have on the number and magnitude of extreme weather events. The remainder of the meeting is devoted to a wide range of climate-related topics.

The atmosphere of the workshop is intentionally informal, and room and board are provided for many of the participants. This year, the workshop was organized by representatives of the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Forest Service. Financial support was provided by the Desert Research Institute (Alan Gertler).
