NOAA’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) and the Modeling, Analysis, Predictions And Projections Program (MAPP) are co-hosting a webinar series on Climate Process Teams (CPTs). The series will highlight the recent results from the projects that were co-funded between NOAA’s CVP and MAPP programs and other Federal agencies including National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Energy (DOE). The goal of CPTs is to accelerate improvements in representing oceanic and atmospheric processes in climate models through interdisciplinary research.

The webinar series will have seven sessions (running on a weekly basis) starting on Thursday, March 14, 2024 and ending on Thursday, April 25, 2024. All sessions will be held at 2:00PM Eastern. Each session will be one-hour long, and feature two, 20-minute presentations with time for questions from the audience. All sessions will be recorded and will be available online afterwards.

The webinar schedule is as follows:
