CPO-funded ESRL team receives Technology Transfer Award

A team at NOAA Earth Systems Research Laboratory (ESRL), led by Cecelia DeLuca, is one of the recipients of the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) 2015 Technology Transfer Interagency Partnership Award for research that was supported by the Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) Program. The ESRL team is part of MAPP's software model infrastructure development activities.

New NOAA research to improve prediction systems 23 February 2015

New NOAA research to improve prediction systems

NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program awarded $1.8 million to support 10 new multi-year projects to help improve NOAA’s climate predictions from two weeks to a year in advance, including extreme conditions. These projects will contribute to the NOAA Climate Test Bed, aimed at accelerating research-based advances in climate prediction and transitioning new tools and techniques to NOAA’s operational services. MAPP is a part of the Climate Program Office, situated within NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research.

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.
