CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program hosted a virtual workshop on Bias Corrections in Subseasonal to Interannual Predictions from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, 2014.

The aim of the workshop was to create:

  • A summary document of current practices for bias correction, including ensemble spread calibration, and best practices;

  • A set of research questions that are related to bias correction and calibration of sub-seasonal to interannual predictions;

  •  Since this is also a virtual workshop, the MAPP team examined whether a virtual approach is an effective way of communicating results and to foster research.

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 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
