Mission

The Climate Prediction Task Force is an initiative of NOAA's MAPP Program to achieve significant new advances in current capabilities to understand and predict intra-seasonal to inter-annual (ISI) climate variability. The Task force brings together MAPP-funded scientists from universities, research laboratories, and NOAA centers and labs. It is envisioned that MAPP Climate Prediction Task Force research objectives will contribute to efforts to advance NOAA's ISI climate prediction capability and to further quantify the limit of predictability. The Task Force includes investigators from the NMME Experiment, a NOAA-led interagency/multi-institution research project in the framework of MAPP-NCEP Climate Test Bed activities, as well as other MAPP investigators with research projects to advance ISI predictions based on dynamical/statistical methodologies. The Task Force will coordinate with other relevant national and international research efforts working on ISI climate prediction (e.g. WCRP/WGSIP activities).

Start date is September 1st 2012 and duration of this group activity is 3 years.
