The Climate Prediction Task Force was featured in U.S. CLIVAR Variations Summer 2013 newsletter.
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.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 5th Assessment Report on “The Physical Science Basis” of climate change has been completed and will appear online on Sept. 30, 2013. This report represents a milestone in the understanding of the Earth system and climate science. Scientific research funded by NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO) is foundational to advancing IPCC reports. CPO supports climate science research reflected in the IPCC’s report through its Climate Observations and Monitoring (COM); Earth System Science (ESS); and Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) programs.
The Climate Prediction Task Force Meeting is taking place Oct. 22-23 in College Park jointly with the NOAA’s 38th CDPW.
