OM009:
Ocean Model Coupling (Air-Ocean, Ice-Ocean, Wave-Ocean) on Subseasonal through Interannual Time Scales to Support the National Earth System Prediction Capability


Session ID#: 27641

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. Prediction at sub-seasonal to seasonal time scales and beyond require full coupling between the components of the physical earth system. National Earth System Prediction Capability (National ESPC) is a partnership of five Federal agencies collaborating to address research and operational issues, especially coordinated transitions or research to operational or application use, across time scales ranging from synoptic to decadal. The partnership’s focus is on the subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) and intraseasonal to interannual (ISI) time range for which both initial conditions and boundary forcings drive the state of the coupled air-ocean-land-ice environment. This session is looking for papers describing improvements to ocean coupling (air-ocean, ice-ocean, wave-ocean) technologies and effective data assimilation for coupled systems, both for weather prediction to support improved S2S/ISI prediction as well as internally consistent ocean and atmosphere modeling. Technologies should improve representation of important coupled phenomena such as MJO, PDO, ENSO, IOD and others.
