Third Conference on Transition of Research to Operations
View by day or program, includes author index and personal scheduler
The theme for the 2013 AMS Annual Meeting is “Taking Predictions to the Next Level: Expanding Beyond Today's Weather, Water, and Climate Forecasting and Projections.” The 3R2O Conference supports the AMS theme by providing a venue for discussing research oriented towards improving the quality of operational weather, climate, and ocean products and services. In addition, the 3R2O Conference supports the national imperative for the effective and efficient transition of research into sustained operations.
The 3R2O Conference will include a discussion by an invited panel of experts addressing the question, “How can we improve the research-to-operations transition process?” The panel members will give their perspective on transitioning successful research to successful operational use and they will discuss the central role R2O plays in addressing this year’s annual theme. Panel members will be prepared to discuss the challenges to R2O, and the potential means to overcome them.
The 3R2O Conference invites papers that address requirements for transition of innovative new research measurements to improve operational services. These include NASA and international partner research data and products, which operational agencies have come to rely upon to support their operational products and services.
The 3R2O Conference is requesting papers describing research to operations testbeds for weather, hydrology, ocean, and climate applications. This session, to be held in conjunction with a special symposium on the Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation, will describe research to operations testbeds for weather, ocean, and climate applications. Testbeds cover a wide range of capabilities -- and include organizations, architectures, processes, and methods that are needed to demonstrate the value of new science or technology outside, or in addition to, the constraints of an operational organization or framework.
The 3R2O Conference will feature a presentation by the NASA Earth Science Division on the status of NASA Earth Science satellite missions in pre-formulation phase. In addition, papers are requested on specific research and technology opportunities, including domestic and international satellite partnerships, as well as commercial opportunities (i.e., hosted payload, service agreements, CRADAs, etc.).
