The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program hosted a technical workshop for the NOAA Climate Reanalysis Task Force (NCRTF) on May 4-5, 2015 at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) Conference Center in College Park, Maryland.
The NCRTF is an initiative of the MAPP program intended to facilitate coordination among relevant MAPP-funded research efforts to help advance NOAA’s climate reanalysis and data assimilation capabilities.
Reanalyses combine observations covering the full instrumental record of each component of the Earth system and are essential to the monitoring and prediction of both weather and climate.

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.
