ASD Seminar: Towards Seamless High-resolution Prediction at Intraseasonal and Longer Timescales

Please join us October 18, 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. MT, in the NCAR Mesa Lab Main Seminar Room as James Kinter, director of the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies (COLA), discusses the COLA team's Accelerated Scientific Discovery (ASD) project, that was among the first to put CISL's Yellowstone system through its paces.The COLA experiments on Yellowstone represent a continuation of the highly successful Project Athena, an international collaboration between COLA and the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), in support of both centers’ ongoing efforts to understand and quantify predictability in the weather and climate system from daily to interannual time scales. Building upon the results of Project Athena, the team has explored the impact of increased atmospheric resolution on model fidelity and prediction skill in a coupled, seamless framework.The presentation will be webcast for those unable to attend in person.
