Research by the North American Multi-Model Ensemble (NMME), "Phase-1 Seasonal to Interannual Prediction, Phase-2 Toward Developing Intra-Seasonal Prediction," will be published in the April issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Association.
NMME is a multi-institution NOAA Climate Test Bed research project to advance intra-seasonal to interannual climate prediction led by NOAA funded by CPO's Modeling, Analysis Predictions and Projections (MAPP) program in partnership with NASA, NSF and DOE.
The paper describes the North American Multi-Model Ensemble prediction experiment including how to access the data in digital and graphical form, and some discussion of forecast quality.

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.
