Summary "The overriding purpose of the Summit was to draw attention to the importance of improving our understanding of the La Nina phenomenon, identifying what is known, what is not yet known, and what societies need to know in order to prepare for La Nina's impacts. This volume provides the current state of the science of forecasting La Nina as well as case studies of La Nina impacts around the world and in different economic sectors."--Jacket.
