Two primary NOAA weather and climate modeling programs will host a joint meeting to assess progress on funded projects working to improve the way NOAA develops and operates models on August 2-4, 2017 at NOAA’s National Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland.
Co-organized by the CPO Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program and NWS Next Generation Global Prediction System (NGGPS) Program, the meeting topics will allow participants to discuss project efforts that address elements described in the recently published NOAA Unified Modeling Task Force report.

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
