NOAA Climate Test Bed Joint Seminar Series

( 2008 - 2009 )

"This Climate Test Bed (CTB) Joint Seminar Series is going to focus on the CTB strategic priorities; specifically composed of the Research to Operation (R2O) component, i.e. NCEP Climate Forecast System (CFS) improvement, multi-model ensemble, climate forecast products, and the Operation to Research (O2R) component of using CFS for scientific research."

                                                                  —  Opening address by Fiona Horsfall,

                                                                        Director of NOAA Climate Test Bed
