Next Generation Climate Data Products Workshop

July 15-19, 2013

Mesa Laboratory, Main Seminar Room.

Sessions will be webcast :

This workshop will bring together statistical and data scientists with those modeling climate and climate impacts to share ideas on improving the creation of data products.
