Improving the Scientific Foundation for Atmosphere-Land-Ocean Simulations: Report of a Workshop (2005)

The National Academies' Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (BASC) held a workshop to explore and evaluate current efforts to model physical processes of coupled atmosphere-land-ocean (A-L-O) models. Numerical models of the atmosphere and ocean are central to weather prediction, research, and education. Although great strides have been made over the past few decades in understanding the atmosphere and ocean, modeling capabilities, an... More >>

Weather Forecasting Accuracy for FAA Traffic Flow Management: A Workshop Report (2003)

Accurate prediction of convective storms 2- to 6-hours in advance is critical to selecting air traffic routes with minimal weather delays or diversions. This report summarizes the discussions of a workshop to explore present convective weather forecasting skill, strategies for improving that skill, ways to verify forecasts are accurate, and how to make forecasts useful to air traffic controllers, airline dispatchers, and pilots.

From Climate to Weather: Impacts on Society and Economy - Summary of a Forum, June 28, 2002, Washington, DC (2003)

This report stems from the forum held on June 28, 2002 at the National Academy of Sciences. The objective of the one-day public forum was to discuss the current state of knowledge on the relationship between climate variability and extreme weather and to inform policymakers and other stakeholders on the science and uncertainties associated with floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and other extreme weather events, their link to climate variability, an...
