The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) program hosted a webinar on the topic of Addressing a Major Model Challenge: Improving the Representation of Clouds in Climate and Earth System Models on Wednesday, February 25, 2015. The announcement is provided below; you are invited to remotely join the session.
The OAR/CPO Modeling, Analysis, and Predictions and Projections (MAPP) program, together with the National Weather Service/National Centers for Environmental Predictions (NWS/NCEP) Climate Prediction Center (CPC), will hold a workshop to explore advancing sub-seasonal forecasting as a follow-on to the North American Multi-Model Ensemble (NMME), a state-of-the-art prediction system.
A team at NOAA Earth Systems Research Laboratory (ESRL), led by Cecelia DeLuca, is one of the recipients of the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) 2015 Technology Transfer Interagency Partnership Award for research that was supported by the Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) Program. The ESRL team is part of MAPP’s software model infrastructure development activities.
NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program awarded $1.8 million to support 10 new multi-year projects to help improve NOAA’s climate predictions from two weeks to a year in advance, including extreme conditions. These projects will contribute to the NOAA Climate Test Bed, aimed at accelerating research-based advances in climate prediction and transitioning new tools and techniques to NOAA’s operational services. MAPP is a part of the Climate Program Office, situated within NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research.
NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program awarded $4.3 million to support 17 new multi-year projects to improve our understanding of drought and advance NOAA’s prediction and monitoring capabilities to better anticipate and respond to drought. MAPP is a part of the Climate Program Office, situated within NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research.
NOAA’s Climate Program Office’s (CPO) Climate Observation and Monitoring Division has awarded over $2.9 million this year to support 10 new multi-year projects to develop innovative strategies and new information products to help better detect, monitor, and understand climate variability and change.
