CLIVAR is an international research programme dealing with climate variability and predictability on time-scales from months to centuries. CLIVAR is a component of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). WCRP is sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization, the International Council for Science and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO.

Note the strong SST gradient in the Atlantic known as the Angola-Benguela front. To its north, at approximately 10E/10S, lies the Angola dome. In contrast, the southeast Pacific has no comparable SST gradients or thermocline domes.
