The 16th Annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW) brings together a diverse group of climate researchers, information producers, and users to share developments in the research and applications of climate predictions for societal decision-making.

The 2018 CPASW will be hosted by the NOAA National Weather Service Climate Services Branch, North Dakota State University, and other climate services partners. Find out more here.

THEME: "Impact Based Decision Support Tools and Applications for Climate Services"

In 2018, the 16th Annual CPASW will convene in Fargo, North Dakota, with a workshop theme of "Impact Based Decision Support Tools for Climate Services.

The workshop will address the following focus areas:

  • Climate predictions and applications at local, regional, and global scales relevant for agriculture, energy, public health, water supply/resources, and business solutions
  • Emergency management and preparedness for weather and climate extremes including drought, flooding, blizzards, and wildfires among others.
  • Service delivery coordination and decision support for planning, resource allocation, sustainable development, and environmental management needed for building resilient communities
  • Best practices of observing, documenting, and communicating climate information relevant for national, tribal and international collaborations

The workshop will gather experts from the region, the nation, and the world to focus on extreme events and the role of climate services. It will provide an opportunity for sharing effective strategies for understanding decision maker requirements, communicating extremes threats, and the heightened uncertainty and attribution of extreme events. Challenges and opportunities for climate services for North Dakota, and the northern Plains agriculture, energy, emergency management and extreme events will be highlighted.
