Webinar on Next Generation Earth System Prediction: Strategies for Subseasonal to Seasonal Forecasts

Wednesday, May 4 at 3:00 PM EDT

Register now to join a free webinar to explore the recent report Next Generation Earth System Prediction: Strategies for Subseasonal to Seasonal Forecasts, which presents a 10-year research agenda to strengthen subseasonal to seasonal weather and ocean predictions (those made two weeks to 12 months in advance). Extending weather and ocean forecasts to predict Earth system conditions weeks to months in advance promises to help decision makers plan ahead to save lives, protect property, and increase economic vitality—but, currently, the accuracy, skill, and scope of such extended forecasts is limited. 

Join members of the report’s authoring committee for a presentation and discussion on proposed research strategies for increasing the skill of forecasts, including expanding the breadth of forecasted variables; improving the prediction of extreme and disruptive events; and bringing researchers and decision makers together to develop more actionable forecasts.

The webinar will feature:

•    A presentation by the Chair of the report’s authoring committee, Raymond Ban of Ban Associates, LLC

•    A Q&A session with Mr. Ban and committee members Robert Hallberg of the NOAA/Geophysical Fluid Dynamic Laboratory and Scott Sandgathe of the University of Washington.
