[NCEP/Climate Prediction Center]   Co-hosted by the Climate Prediction Center of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)/NOAA, Camp Springs, MD, and the Department of Meteorology of the Pennsylvania State University, this year’s Workshop focused on the following topics:

  • a review and assessment of recent climate

  • observed and predicted climate variability in Alaska and adjacent regions
  • regional hydrologic variability and North American applications
  • results from the North American Monsoon Experiment (NAME) field campaign and NAME modeling studies

  • theoretical and practical predictability of the land, ocean and atmosphere
  • long-term climate variability
  • the impact of a changing climate on prediction

In addition, on 24-25 October the Workshop featured several sessions summarizing activities of interest to the NOAA Climate Test Bed, including climate model assessments, multi-model ensembles and climate products and applications.  As always, the Workshop provided an opportunity for participants to exchange information, ideas, and opinions.

The American Meteorological Society was a cooperating sponsor.
