It is with great pleasure that we announce that NOAA's 48th Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop will be held in sunny Tallahassee, Florida, USA from 24–26 October 2023. The workshop will be hosted by the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) and the Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies (COAPS) at Florida State University and is co-sponsored by the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) and the Climate Services Branch (CSB) of the National Weather Service (NWS).
This meeting is currently being planned as a hybrid in person / virtual event, hoping to combine the benefits of a face-to-face meeting with the potential for broader virtual participation across the community for attendees. At this time, we are planning to have all speakers and poster presenters on site in Tallahassee, with the option for virtual attendance for those who would like to listen to workshop speakers without traveling to Tallahassee.
The workshop will focus on four major themes that encompass the topics of prediction, monitoring, attribution, diagnostics, and service delivery:
- Predictions and predictability of climate variability across spatial and temporal scales, and forecast verifications. Topics of interest include diagnostics and attribution of climate anomalies and of extreme events, including heat and cold waves; polar amplification; sudden stratospheric warmings and their impact on mid-latitude climate variability; marine heat waves.
- Applications of novel statistical methods, including machine learning / artificial intelligence (ML/AI) on the development of improved predictions at Sub-seasonal to Seasonal (S2S) time scales.
- Tools and techniques that bridge climate forecasts with climate applications and service delivery in support of a Climate Ready Nation, including methods to foster resilience to impactful weather, water, and environmental hazards and promote economic benefit of climate sensitive decisions.
- Prediction and monitoring of hydroclimate in the Southeast U.S., including drought, pluvial flooding, extreme precipitation, and other variables related to water resources. We also encourage relevant contributions on the prediction and monitoring of the marine climate over the Gulf of Mexico and along the eastern shores of the Southeastern U.S.
The workshop may feature oral and poster presentations, lightning talks, invited speakers, and group discussions. Early bird and discounted student registration rates will be available.
