WPO’s Climate Testbed partnership with the National Center for Environmental Prediction supports research to improve the operational products at the Climate Prediction Center. We accomplish this by supporting research projects in the collaborative Climate Test Bed, which are intended to demonstrate the potential for scientific advances from the external research community to improve operational climate predictions, and to enhance the public benefits derived from these research activities. This year Climate Testbed proposals focused the external community on activities to advance the NOAA’s subseasonal to seasonal prediction (S2S) capabilities via improved precipitation outlooks.
The FY22 2-year award total* for the 4 selected cooperative agreement projects equals $1.78 M. Projects will be funded for 2 years beginning in August, 2022.
*Award totals are distributed over the life of the projects and conditional on appropriations
