MAPP Webinar Series: Next-Generation Climate and Earth System Models

The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) program will host a webinar on the topic of model development on Tuesday, January 14. This webinar will discuss plans at NCEP and GFDL for next-generation model development as well as three new Climate Process Teams funded by the MAPP program and focused on improving the representation of clouds in NOAA’s climate models and advanced representations of sea ice processes in GFDL climate and Earth system models.

MAPP Webinar Series: Modeling at Fine Scales: Research to Improve Regional and Local Climate Information

The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections program hosted a webinar on the topic of high-resolution modeling and information on Tuesday, December 17. Producing climate simulations at fine-scale requires significant advances in the understanding of climate processes and model capabilities. The demand for fine-scale information, which drives this research thrust, is great and growing. Many aspects of the applied climate sciences require high-resolution information for accurate planning. Research to develop such information strives to achieve both higher resolution and also more accurate models.

MAPP Webinar Series: The National Climate Predictions and Projections platform

The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections program hosted a webinar on the National Climate Predictions and Projections (NCPP) platform on Friday, November 15, 2013. The webinar described NCPP’s recent progress and achievements and discussed future directions.

NOAA-funded research could help early prediction of extreme heat waves 5 November 2013

NOAA-funded research could help early prediction of extreme heat waves

New research partially funded by NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program may enable longer-term forecasts of U.S. heat waves. Scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research have fingerprinted a distinctive atmospheric wave pattern high above the Northern Hemisphere that can foreshadow the emergence of summertime heat waves in the United States more than two weeks in advance.
