This session will bring together recent progress on seasonal to decadal predictions and predictability. The session will cover the evaluation of different forecasting and initialization strategies, results of the CMIP5 decadal integrations, and results from latest seasonal forecasting systems. In this context we also invite contributions regarding the potential predictability of the earth system on seasonal to decadal timescales.
