This NOAA Drought Task Force/NIDIS report details the results of an extensive multi-research-group analysis of the causes and predictability of the drought. The report finds that the exceedingly warm and dry conditions that caused the drought were due to a high pressure ridge off the west coast of the United States influenced heavily by anomalous sea surface temperatures. These influences are attributed to natural variability.
CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program hosted a virtual workshop on Bias Corrections in Subseasonal to Interannual Predictions from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, 2014.
The Virtual Workshop on "Bias Corrections in Subseasonal to Interannual Predictions" organized by the Climate Prediction Task Force (CPTF) took place from September 30 - October 2, 2014. The main goals of this Virtual Workshop were to review current practices and challenges in bias correcting sub-seasonal to interannual predictions and to foster new strategies particularly for non-stationary prediction systems.
