SUBSEASONAL TO SEASONAL FUNDING
To foster innovative research as well as transition to practical tools, the S2S program awards a range of competitive awards to University, Cooperative Institute, and NOAA Lab investigators through development stage (Readiness Levels 3-5) research calls and demonstration stage (Readiness Levels 6-8) competitions in cooperation with the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) through the Climate Testbed (CTB).
Pie Chart: slices of the pie indicate the relative allocation of funding in the FY21 WPO S2S research budget, where funds were devoted to intra-agency Service Level Agreement (SLA) research projects, the second year of Climate Testbed Projects competitively awarded in FY20, and the third year of development stage S2S projects competitively awarded in FY19. The remainder is used to maintain the North American Multi-Model Ensemble (NMME) and the Subseasonal Experiment multi-model ensemble (SubX), the WMO S2S database. Note: funding amounts and allocations are in no way a guarantee of continued or future funding by NOAA and do not include overhead, staff, etc.
