NOAA 27th Annual Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop
Scientific and Logistical Information
NOAA’s 27th Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop will be held on
October 21-25, 2002 at the George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia.
The workshop is co-hosted by the Climate Prediction Center of the
National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)/NOAA, Washington,
D.C., and the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies (COLA),
Calverton, MD. The American Meteorological Society is a cooperating
sponsor. The workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to
exchange information, ideas, and opinions on a variety of topics,
- 1.) Review and assessment of recent climate anomalies: their impacts and
the skill of their predictions
- 2.) Defining, diagnosing and predicting El Nino and its impacts
- 3.) Diagnosing and predicting global and regional monsoon characteristics
and associated teleconnections on intra-seasonal (MJO), inter-annual (ENSO) and
inter-decadal (PDO, others?) time scales
- 4.) Diagnosing and predicting AO, NAO, PDO, PNA and the links between
climate variability associated with these modes and extreme weather events
- 5.) Experimental long-lead prediction on the monthly, seasonal, inter-annual and inter-decadal
time scales (skill, methodology, etc.)
Physical analysis and interpretation are particularly encouraged,
regardless of whether the approach of the study is observational, modeling, or theoretical.
Please send your abstracts to: Ncep.CDWorkshop@noaa.gov
Include: Title, Author(s), Affiliation(s), Abstract, email address,
phone and fax numbers, and preference for poster or oral presentation.
Note: Poster presentations will outnumber oral ones, since time
constraints and a large number of papers necessarily limit the number
of oral talks which can be accomodated.
Deadline for submissions is August 2nd.
