MAPP kicks off Climate Reanalysis Task Force activities

An initiative of NOAA’s Modeling Analysis Predictions, and Projection (MAPP) program, the Climate Reanalysis Task Force aims to advance NOAA’s climate reanalysis capability by focusing on research to address outstanding issues in atmospheric, ocean, and land reanalysis and develop a greater degree of integration among Earth system reanalysis components.

Bringing together MAPP-funded scientists from universities, research laboratories and NOAA centers across the country, the Task Force represents the major climate reanalysis coordinated research initiative since the release of the NOAA CFS-R and 20CR reanalysis in 2010.

Climate Program Office Director Wayne Higgins kicked off Task Force activities on Sept. 25 with his introductory remarks to underline the importance of this research effort. The duration of this group activity is three years.

Leads include Arun Kumar from NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)/Climate Prediction Center (CPC) and Gil Compo from the University of Colorado’s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) and NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory’s (ESRL) Physical Sciences Division. Co-Leads include Mike Ek from NOAA’s NCEP/Environmental Modeling Center and Jim Carton from the University of Maryland.
