Numerical Prediction Planning:
The theme of the OST Numerical Prediction Integrated Work Team (NP-IWT) is science and technology (S&T) infusion planning for numerical prediction. Now that the MAR is complete, the NWS must look ahead to the science and technology advancements which will enable our products and services in the next decades. To begin this task, the Office of Science and Technology has drafted Version 1 of an NWS Science and Technology Infusion Plan (STIP). The STIP is organized along three planning time frames (near-, mid- and long-term) and focuses on 6 areas of advancement: Enabling Technologies, Observations, Numerical Prediction and Data Assimilation, Forecast Techniques and Product / Information Preparation, Dissemination, and Fundamental Research. The NP IWT group interacts with all these project areas, with specific emphasis on data assimilation and numerical prediction.
