Topical Collection on Climate Forecast System version 2 (CFSv2)
The Topical Collection on Climate Forecast System version 2 (CFSv2) is now complete. All 24 papers included in a topical collection on the Climate Forecast System version 2 (CFSv2) have been published in the international journal Climate Dynamics. The CFSv2, a National Weather Service/National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NWS/NCEP) global climate model used for prediction, has been developed by NCEP over several years and was implemented into operationns in March 2011. The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies (COLA), Climate Program Office (CPO) organized this collection, contributed by many research groups, to document significant advances in the capability of the CFSv2 to simulate important climate phenomena like El Nino and to predict surface temperature and precipitation patterns compared to the previous version of the model.This collection serves as an important scientific reference for the development of the next generation of the CFS, now underway, making it an excellent example of research in the broad community in support of NOAA's operational mission achieved through collaboration between NOAA's Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) and National Weather Service (NWS).
This collection is coordinated by Jin Huang, Annarita Mariotti, Jim Kinter, and Arun Kumar; the Chief Editor was Edwin Schneider.

The Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) Program's mission is to enhance the Nation's capability to understand and predict natural variability and changes in Earth's climate system. The MAPP Program supports development of advanced climate modeling technologies to improve simulation of climate variability, prediction of future climate variations from weeks to decades, and projection of long-term future climate conditions. To achieve its mission, the MAPP Program supports research focused on the coupling, integration, and application of Earth system models and analyses across NOAA, among partner agencies, and with the external research community.
