First Users Workshop

The first NARCCAP Users Workshop was held at NCAR on Feb. 14-15, 2008. The meeting introduced users to the project and provided them with their first look at NARCCAP data, and also provided the PIs with valuable information about the needs of the user community. Meeting materials, including presentations and discussion materials, are linked from the meeting agenda.

 

PI Meeting at AGU

A meeting for NARCCAP participants to discuss progress and status of modeling and archiving was held during Fall AGU 2007. The NARCCAP team met on Dec. 11, 2007 from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm at the Downtown San Francisco Marriott in Willow Conference 22.

 

Sessions at AGU Fall 2007

A number of posters and talks were presented by NARCCAP participants in morning session GC21A, "Regional Climate I: Modeling, Detection, and Attribution of Climate Change Posters", and in afternoon session GC23B "Regional Climate II: Modeling". Both sessions were Tuesday, Dec. 11th 2007.

Special Session Fall AGU 2005

H57: Role of Observed Precipitation in Atmospheric and Land Surface Models

Precipitation observations are beginning to be used for more than just validation of numerical weather prediction and climate models. Because atmospheric model precipitation is still not very accurate, off-line and coupled land-surface models have begun to employ observed precipitation instead. Precipitation observations are also beginning to be used for a new generation of atmospheric analyses. The purpose of this special session is to exchange recent scientific knowledge on the impacts and techniques for using precipitation observations in numerical analyses, simulations, and predictions. Precipitation observations include conventional rain gauge observations as well as radar and satellite estimates. Presentations describing assimilation techniques for precipitation observations are encouraged. Presentations describing the impacts of incorporating precipitation observations on weather and climate simulations and predictions in atmosphere and land surface models are especially welcome.
