A090:
Research-to-Operations Transitions Supporting the National Earth System Prediction Capability: Subseasonal-to-Seasonal Time Range





Session ID#: 23908

Session Description:
Important decisions in sectors ranging from food security and public health, emergency management and national security rely on forecast information globally and at time scales beyond traditional weather limits. National Earth System Prediction Capability (National ESPC) is a partnership of five Federal agencies collaborating to address research and operational issues, especially coordinated transitions of research to operations/application use, across time scales ranging from synoptic to decadal.  The partnership’s current focus is on the subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) time range for which both initial conditions and boundary forcings drive the state of the coupled air-ocean-land-ice environment.  With the goal of accelerating scientific and technologic transitions of improvements into operational models or decision tools, this session is accepting submissions on critical path technologies to improve S2S prediction, especially for phenomena with fundamental time scales extending across this time frame such as ENSO, MJO, blocking, drought, floods, tropical cyclone genesis, Arctic ice, and others.
