Forecasting a Continuum of Environmental Threats (FACETs): Early-Stage Development of a New Watch/Warning Paradigm
To develop a “master plan” for FACETs, a workshop was convened in Norman, OK in 2014. Comprised of a diverse group of NOAA partners, stakeholders and leadership, a FACETs Development Team used the workshop to identify activities needed to move from the current, deterministic, product-centric paradigm to that of the FACETs paradigm. The resulting “Science and Strategic Implementation Plan (SSIP)” charts the course for this paradigm change, including the communication and social/behavioral/economic sciences necessary to do so. This presentation will share key recommendations and implementation strategies identified in the SSIP, the progress made toward achieving the SSIP goals, and initial finding of FACETs-related work in the Hazardous Weather Testbed.
