NOAA’s 43rd Climate Diagnostics & Prediction Workshop
The workshop will focus on five major themes, with an emphasis on climate prediction, monitoring, attribution, diagnostics, and service delivery related to:
- Improved understanding of the coupled atmosphere-ocean climate system through dynamical and statistical models and methods, forecaster practices and protocols, reanalysis data and model improvement, and scientific concepts.
- Prospects for improved understanding, prediction, and simulation of intra-seasonal, seasonal, and inter-annual climate variability, including the extratropical annular modes, stratosphere/troposphere coupling, tropical-extratropical interactions, land-surface forcing, atmospheric river events and drought/precipitation events etc.
- Climate variability and prediction in relation to the hydrologic cycle and in particular Western water resources.
- Observation, prediction and attribution of recent high impact weather and climate events, and implications for extreme precipitation and temperatures, heat/cold waves, droughts and wildfires.
- Improving climate information delivery for impact-based decision support services through the application of new technologies, including GIS, statistical tools, and software development practices.
The workshop will feature daytime oral presentations, invited speakers, and discussions with a poster session event on one evening. Discounted student registration and some travel support for students will be available.
