The Subseasonal eXperiment: A Major Coordinated Effort to Attack the Subseasonal Prediction Problem and Advance Operations and Research hand-in-hand 5 November 2019

The Subseasonal eXperiment: A Major Coordinated Effort to Attack the Subseasonal Prediction Problem and Advance Operations and Research hand-in-hand

A well-known gap in prediction skill extending from two weeks to several months exists in our climate modeling systems. With the inability of climate models to include all local and mesoscale land and atmospheric processes, reliable subseasonal forecasts and predictions have been difficult to produce.

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 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
