Meeting notes

Meeting notes

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

  • NOAA IPCC modeling contribution focus is at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Lab (GFDL)

  • IPCC modeling requires a national strategy that distributes responsibility to all relevant performers

    Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR)

  • What is US program’s relationship w/ Int’l CLIVAR?

  • GEWEX / CLIVAR linkages and NOAA role(s) should be articulated

  • Key roles for Climate Process Teams in CLIVAR activities

    Upper Air Observing Systems at NOAA

  • Systems are inadequate for climate observations

  • Current thrusts focus on atmospheric composition rather than Climate forcing [even though forcing is 20% of budget]


Meeting notes 2

Meeting notes (2)

NOAA Arctic Issues FY08 - FY12

  • Approaches to Modeling, Reanalysis, etc. need discussion

    Climate impacts on Fisheries

  • Bering Sea focus

  • NCPREP information is being provided to various groups

  • Range/regime shifts need to be investigated

  • PMEL providing climate change predictions for the next 3-5 years


Meeting notes 3

Meeting notes (3)

Planning for Climate Data Records

  • Greater Integration across NOAA programs including observations, validation and modeling

  • Need for improved inter-agency collaboration, e.g., NASA

  • Long Term Data Records - efforts should include prospective and retrospective activities, not simply retrospective

  • Should maintain a summary of NRC recommendations and NOAA responses

  • SDS should document CDRs it will be responsible for

  • Performance measures need development /linkage to societal benefits

  • Validation needs more visibility in the overall CDR process

  • Reanalysis - a national strategy and the SDS role need definition

  • Community Reanalysis Code and Reanalysis product linkage should be developed

  • Data management strategy to support reanalysis should be defined

  • Data and Observation systems - WG needs regular updates on CLASS

  • Relationships between CLASS and GEOSS need to be articulated with respect to data synthesis and analysis


Meeting notes 4

Meeting notes (4)

Community Re-analysis Project

  • Community Re-analysis - Phil Arkin proposal

  • Explore a Community Reanalysis Code (CRC) and a Community Reanalysis Database (CRD)

  • Coordination with Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation

  • May require a WG to develop the concept of a CRC/CRD fully


Sab actions

SAB Actions

  • Articulate linkages between CWG and other SAB activities, i.e., Working Groups

  • Accept the Climate Working Group Report and provide feedback on the commentary
