The theme for this year's workshop is "The Role of Ocean Observations for Improving Indonesian Climate Services-The Principles, Modelling and Real-time Products" to include:
Options will be advanced for administering NOAA’s two U.S. Graduate Ocean-Climate Fellowships scheduled to begin in September 2016. Immediately following the Bandung Workshop two BMKG Scientists will travel to NOAA's Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) for four months of Model training.
In exchange for NOAA's capacity development, training and education, Indonesia provides gratis ship support for the annual servicing of NOAA's eastern Indian Ocean moorings of the "Research Moored Array for African-Asian-Australian Monsoon Analysis and Prediction" (RAMA). Such "resource-sharing" Partnerships between developing and developed Nations are consistent with the objectives of the IOC/WMO Joint Technology Commissions for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) PANGEA concept.
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 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
