MedCLIVAR's scientific priorities are:

description of climate past evolution

assessment of climate variability at different space and time scales

understanding the mechanisms responsible for the observed climate variability

identifying trends and providing climate prediction in relation to future emission scenarios.

study of the occurrence of extreme events and climate change impacts
