Climate Prediction Assessments Workshop Research
and Applications on Use and Impacts - October 28-30, 2002
The National Weather Service Climate Services Division, in conjunction with
the NOAA Office of Global Programs and the NOAA Climate Observations and Services
Programs, is hosting a meeting in the fall of 2002 in the Washington, DC area
to identify new research and applications on use and impacts of climate predictions.
The meeting goals are to identify new climate applications research, promote
interactions between climate-sensitive integrated research and service communities,
and assess impact of climate forecasts on environmental-societal interactions.
Papers for this conference are solicited from the community on new research
that uses climate forecasts, applications of climate forecasts, identifies needs
for climate forecasts, use and impacts of climate forecasts, and related topics.
Please submit abstracts electronically to Ms. Jill Reisdorf at email@example.com
by September 23, 2002.
