NOAA's 31st Annual Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop Will be Held from October 23-27, 2006 in Boulder, Colorado
NOAA’s 31st Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop (CDPW) will be held in Boulder, Colorado, from October 23-27, 2006. The workshop will be co-hosted by the Climate Diagnostics Center and by the Climate Prediction Center of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction/NOAA.
Our gathering this year will focus on three themes: (i) climate predictions/predictability, (ii) understanding and attribution of climate variability, and (iii) the NOAA Climate Test Bed. The workshop will combine invited presentations and posters on existing, as well as recent advances in scientific understanding and capabilities with discussions on requirements for decision support. The outcome of this year’s workshop will include an assessment of current operational prediction capabilities, identifying opportunities for advances, and exploring new products to support regional decision making. The workshop will provide enhanced opportunity for participants to exchange information, ideas, and opinions through participation in panel discussions and thematic, focus talks. The primary focal areas for the workshop will include:
The Workshop will feature focused oral sessions consisting of invited only presentations, followed by panel discussions and ample time for discussions; rest of the submission will be organized as posters.
