The Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW)

The National Weather Service Climate Services Division, in conjunction with the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group (CIG), will host the 5th Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW) in Seattle, Washington, on March 20-23, 2007.

The workshop will bring together a diverse group of climate science producers and users to share developments in research and applications related to the use of climate predictions in societal decision-making. The meeting goals are:

  1. to identify new climate prediction applications research,
  2. to "build community" by promoting interactions between integrated climate-sensitive research and service communities,
  3. to assess impacts of climate forecasts on environmental-societal interactions, and
  4. to provide feedback to producers of climate products on user requirements.

The workshop will not address technical challenges of making climate predictions, climate modeling, or other technical topics related to the science of climate predictions.
