CTB CFSv2 Evaluation Workshop

CTB CFSv2 Evaluation Workshop was held in College Park, Maryland, 30 April - 1 May 2012. The purpose of this workshop was to evaluate CFSv2 in terms of its utility for climate modeling research and as a climate forecasting tool. The objectives of this workshop were to bring NCEP and the broader climate community together to:

1. document progress in model performance from CFSv1 to CFSv2, including the impacts of reanalysis, initializing atmosphere/ocean/ land, and the change in the model itself;

2. identify key model biases and deficiencies in the CFSv2;

3. help identify most promising research directions for the development of CFSv3, for example, to design experiments to understand how to incrementally improve upon CFSv2, and to test coupling of the latest GFS with state-of-the-art model components.
