Workshop Announcement

2024 CDPW–CPASW Joint Workshop

It is with great pleasure that we announce the joint NOAA's 48th Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop (CDPW48) and 21st Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW21) that will be held in sunny Tallahassee, Florida, USA from March 26–29th, 2024. 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-hosted 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).

The workshop will bring together a diverse community to share developments in research and application of weather and climate information for societal decision-making. Participants will include researchers, service producers, resource managers, emergency managers, planners, practitioners, social scientists, and others making weather and climate-sensitive decisions.

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. 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 CDPW48 will focus on three major themes that encompass the topics of prediction, monitoring, attribution, and diagnostics:

  • Theme 1: Predictions and Predictability of Climate and Forecast Verifications
    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.
  • Theme 2: Novel Statistical Methods for Improved S2S Prediction
    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.
  • Theme 3: Prediction and monitoring of hydroclimate in the Southeast U.S.
    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 CPASW21 will focus on “Discovering and Integrating Innovative Approaches in Climate Service Delivery for Growing Environmental and Economic Challenges” that encompass the following themes:

  • Theme 4: Bridging climate forecasts and application in support of a Climate Ready Nations for service delivery
    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, including drought, floods, extreme heat, and fire weather.
  • Theme 5: Emerging requirements for climate services delivery
    New service requirements for climate data, tools, prediction applications, and information delivery methods that are based on advances in modern technology, scientific innovations, to meet the growing needs of contemporary users.
  • Theme 6: Measuring benefits of climate services
    Climate services value to the national economy and communities using socio-, behavioral-, and economic- scientific methods.

The joint workshop may feature oral and poster presentations, lightning talks, invited speakers, panel sessions, and group discussions. Early bird and discounted student registration rates will be available.
