NOAA’s 47th Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop will be held in the scenic mountain town of Logan, Utah, USA on 25–27 October 2022. The workshop will be hosted by the Utah Climate Center at Utah State University and is co-sponsored by the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) and the Climate Services Branch (CSB) of the National Weather Service (NWS).
While we hope everybody will be able to meet together in Logan, we realize that there might still be travel restrictions or individual concerns come the fall. Therefore, this meeting is currently being planned as a hybrid in person / virtual event, hoping to combine the benefits of a face-to-face meeting with the potential for broader virtual participation across the community for attendees. At this time, we are hoping to have all speakers on site in Logan. A survey to gauge interest and concerns will be sent to recent registrants sometime in the 2022 summer.
The workshop will focus on four major themes, with an emphasis on climate prediction, monitoring, attribution, diagnostics, and service delivery:
- Predictions and predictability of climate variability across spatial and temporal scales, and forecasts verifications. Topics also include the attribution of climate anomalies in dynamical forecast systems, diagnostics and attribution of extreme events worldwide, including heat and cold waves, polar amplification and sudden stratospheric warming, and impact on mid-latitude climate variability and predictability.
- Applications of modern technologies such as machine learning / artificial intelligence (ML/AI) on the development of improved predictions at Sub-seasonal to Seasonal (S2S) time scales.
- Tools and techniques that bridge climate forecasts with climate applications and service delivery, including methods to address service equity, to foster resilience to impactful weather, water, and climate hazards.
- Prediction and monitoring of hydroclimate in the Western U.S., including drought, snowfall and snowpack, pluvial flooding, extreme precipitation, and other variables related to water resources.
The workshop may feature oral and poster presentations, lightning talks, invited speakers, and group discussions. Early bird and discounted student registration rates will be available.
