4th NOAA Testbed & Proving Ground Workshop

Dates:   2–4 April 2013
Where: NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction
5830 University Research Court
College Park, MD
What:  The workshop will focus on exchanging lessons-learned & best practices within current NOAA and related testbeds/proving grounds, and on building cross-testbed collaborations and synergies. The workshop will include integrating science themes to highlight high-impact weather events, and regional scale high-impact weather NWP data assimilation for numerical weather prediction models. Previous Workshop Summaries
Why:  This workshop, directed towards enhancing communication across NOAA testbed/proving ground efforts, is an important opportunity to exchange information, and enhance the use and effectiveness of outcomes in NOAA operations. Updates on the wide variety of testbed and proving projects across NOAA, related efforts, and new ones on the horizon, will also feature progress in integrating science themes in a critical area for NOAA, including NOAA's Weather Ready Nation strategic goals.
Workshop Goals:
  • Communicate results and future directions for individual testbeds/proving grounds and discuss broader cross-facility issues and directions
  • Communicate testing activities/results/challenges on the integrating science theme
  • Identify best practices, understand and discuss improvements towards achieving our testbed goals
