he National Earth System Prediction Capability (National ESPC) inter-agency program is an ongoing effort to improve collaboration across the environmental research and operational prediction communities for the development and implementation of improved national physical earth system prediction. The Nation's security and economic well-being rely upon accurate global analysis and prediction capabilities for the physical environment over time scales of a few days to weekly, monthly, seasonal and longer lead times. This project involves an operational ensemble capability, common post processing and product development, infrastructure to support more collaborative and interoperable model development and a shared vision and R&D goals for ongoing and future efforts. Progress in all areas has been significant over the course for the past 12 months and roadmaps and future plans continue to move forward. Efforts in the five R&D focus areas continue to strengthen as the partnering agencies continue to garner support from with their organizations and the broader community recognizes the need for this unifying project for a National direction for an improved National Capability.
