At the NOAA Climate Prediction Center (CPC), a science-services organization responsible for subseasonal-to-seasonal operational forecasts, we’re responsible for juggling two tasks: (1) staying up to speed on the latest and greatest climate research, and (2) then translating that information so that a wide variety of users can take advantage of it. This is easier said than done. As lead of the ENSO team at CPC, I will share my experiences in updating and disseminating our ENSO outlooks via our ENSO Diagnostics discussion and the NOAA climate.gov ENSO Blog. I will discuss my own challenges to become a trusted scientist in the ENSO research community, while at the same time, working to build applications and translating this knowledge to the general public.
