NOAA Science Challenge Workshop
Predicting Arctic Weather and Climate and Related Impacts
The overarching purpose of the workshop is to inform NOAA on actions required to address present and anticipated future mission requirements for predictions of Arctic weather and climate and related impacts. The workshop will also define actions needed to determine relationships between Arctic and lower latitude weather and climate variability and their predictive implications, with emphasis on predictions over the sector encompassing North America and adjacent ocean regions. The workshop’s primary emphasis will be on steps needed to improve predictions and related services from days to seasons in advance; however, needs and opportunities for developing longer-term prediction products will also be considered. The workshop will place particular emphasis on addressing forecast challenges in the following areas:
- Predictions of Arctic weather and climate, including sea ice.
- Predictions of mid-latitude weather and climate, focusing on the role of higher latitude processes such as variations in Arctic sea ice and the Arctic Oscillation/North Atlantic Oscillation.
