CPTF/MAPP Webinar: NAO variability, predictability, and related prediction improvements

Wednesday, October 15, 2014
The NOAA Climate Prediction Task Force and CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) program will host a webinar on the topic of understanding of the North Atlantic Oscillation’s variability and predictability and exploiting that for improving on Thursday, October 16. The announcement is provided below; you are invited to remotely join the session.

Virtual Workshop on Bias Corrections in Subseasonal to Interannual Predictions

Friday, October 03, 2014
The Virtual Workshop on "Bias Corrections in Subseasonal to Interannual Predictions" organized by the Climate Prediction Task Force (CPTF) took place from September 30 - October 2, 2014. The main goals of this Virtual Workshop were to review current practices and challenges in bias correcting sub-seasonal to interannual predictions and to foster new strategies particularly for non-stationary prediction systems.

MAPP Webinar Series: Climate Extremes: Understanding and Predicting High-Impact Conditions

Tuesday, March 11, 2014
The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) and Earth System Science (ESS) programs will host a webinar on the topic of climate extremes and efforts to better understand and predict them on Tuesday, April 8. During this webinar, speakers will touch on tropical cyclones, tornadoes, and drought, focusing on improved scientific understanding of these phenomena and their variability in a climate context as well as efforts to better simulate and predict them on various time scales. This work is directly relevant to the NOAA Societal Challenge “Reducing the Nation’s Vulnerability to Extreme Weather and Climate.” The announcement is provided below; you are invited to remotely join the session.

MAPP Webinar Series: Understanding Climate Predictability and Advancing Predictions

Tuesday, February 18, 2014
The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) program will host a webinar on the topic of climate predictability and predictions on Tuesday, March 18. During this webinar, speakers will discuss the National Multi Model Ensemble, other subseasonal to seasonal prediction efforts, and predictability of Asian Summer monsoon precipitation. This work is relevant to ongoing activities of the NOAA Climate Prediction Task Force, which will also be discussed.

MAPP Webinar

Wednesday, October 23, 2013
The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program broadcasted a session from the Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop hosted in parallel with the MAPP Climate Prediction Task Force meeting on the topic of the National Multi-Model Ensemble on Tuesday, October 22, 2013.

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.
