Session 11A The National Earth System Prediction Capability Agenda for Subseasonal to Seasonal Prediction (S2S)

Wednesday, 25 January 2017: 4:00 PM-5:30 PM
Conference Center: Tahoma 4 (Washington State Convention Center )
Host: 28th Conference on Weather Analysis and Forecasting / 24th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction
Jessie C. Carman, OAR, Silver Spring, MD and David McCarren, Navy/CNMOC, Silver Springs, MD

The National Earth System Prediction Capability is a partnership of five Federal agencies collaborating to address research and operational issues from weather to decadal time scales. 2015 WMO and the 2016 NRC reports on S2S call for broad US and international collaboration between academia, operational centers, private industry and the user community to advance earth system predictive capability beyond two weeks and to build and sustain a coordinated US S2S research capability. The National ESPC agencies will present their agenda to address these reports and move the US toward a robust S2S research and predictive capability. Expected presentations: - National ESPC overview and goals for S2S - National ESPC research member agencies (principals or program managers) present their agency agenda for building an S2S research community and their primary research focus areas. - National ESPC operational member agencies present their agenda for addressing S2S operations, support for research access to S2S prediction systems, and plans for user involvement in product development.
