Workshop

Decadal Climate Prediction: Improving Our Understanding of Processes and Mechanisms to Make Better Predictions

calendar
Jun 7th, 2015 - Jun 12th, 2015
location
Aspen

This meeting brought together 32 national and international scientists who are members of the Decadal Climate Prediction Project. The aim of this project is to further the understanding of climate prediction on shorter time scales. As opposed to traditional climate prediction that focuses on century-long time scales, this project will attempt to address climate change on annual to decadal time scales.

While this new field of decadal climate prediction has seen rapid advances, there is still a lack of understanding regarding processes and mechanisms that control predictions on decadal timescales. A range of experiments and studies have been proposed by the meeting participants to help coordinate further developments. There are high expectations for this new field of decadal climate prediction from the stakeholder and policy-maker communities. Improving our understanding is essential for producing useful, near-term climate information that will inform decisions for the next decade.
