Special Symposium on Advancing Weather and Climate Forecasts: Innovative Techniques and Applications

Conferences and Symposia Conference Program
View by day or program, includes author index and personal scheduler

      The Special Symposium on Advancing Weather and Climate Forecasts, sponsored by the Weather Analysis and Forecasting Committee, will incorporate the 2013 AMS Annual Meeting Theme of "Taking Predictions to the Next Level: Expanding Beyond Today's Weather, Water, and Climate Forecasting and Projections" by providing a one-day series of presentations emphasizing new and future techniques designed to improve forecasting capabilities across a variety of disciplines. 

      Oral and poster presentations are requested in four topical areas:

  • New and future capabilities in observations, numerical weather prediction, ensemble-based forecasting, and data assimilation,
  • Advancements in forecasting techniques and capabilities, including testbed and forecast improvement project activities, as well as new capabilities in extended range and inter- to intra-seasonal prediction,
  • Improvements in decision support services for users, incorporation of societal impact considerations, and tools to enhance forecast utility across more diverse user groups, and
  • Cross-cutting applications that incorporate weather and climate forecasts within other disciplines or sectors.

      Submissions from students are encouraged for oral and poster presentations, and awards will be given for outstanding presenters in both categories.

          For additional information, please contact the co-chairpersons: Andrew Molthan (e-mail: andrew.molthan@nasa.gov) or Kelly Mahoney (e-mail: kelly.mahoney@noaa.gov)
