Goal is improved short and long-term prediction of weather, climate, ocean and sea ice conditions
Accurately predicting the weather – at short and long time scales – is among the most complex and important challenges faced by science. Protecting the nation’s security and economic well-being will increasingly rely on improved skill in forecasting weather, weather-driven events like floods and droughts, and long-term shifts in weather, ocean and sea-ice patterns.
A new paper co-authored by officials from NOAA Research and NOAA’s National Weather Service, other federal agencies, and the military, captures the 60-year history of U.S. numerical weather prediction and details a five-agency strategy underway to coordinate and accelerate the America’s environmental prediction capability. The paper was published in the February issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
