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.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

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.
