NOAA's 40th Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop will be held in Denver, Colorado on 26-29 October 2015. The workshop will be hosted by the Physical Sciences Division (PSD) of NOAA's Earth Systems Research Laboratory (ESRL) and co-sponsored by the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) and the Climate Services Division (CSD) of the National Weather Service (NWS).

The workshop will address the status and prospects for advancing climate prediction, monitoring, and diagnostics, and will focus on five major themes:

  1. The evolution of climate diagnostics and prediction over the last 40 years.
  2. Extremes and risk management: knowledge and products to connect the diagnostics and prediction of extremes with preparedness and adaptation strategies.
  3. The prediction, attribution, and analysis of drought and pluvial in the framework of climate variability and change.
  4. Diagnostics and prediction of high impact extreme climate events.
  5. Prediction and attribution of Arctic climate variability, and the linkages of Arctic variability to lower latitudes.

The workshop will feature daytime oral presentations, invited speakers, and panel discussions with a poster session event on one evening. Discounted student registration and some travel support for students will be available.

To submit an abstract, please go to the abstract submission panel and select a session to fill an abstract form. If you have a problem to do so, please send the required information on the web form as an attachment via email to or The abstract deadline is July 31, 2015.
