The Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW) will now be held virtually April 20-22, 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic. Our co-host will still be the Arizona State University / Arizona State Climate Office and the planning team has remained committed to helping redefine what CPASW will look like in 2021. We will also keep the intended meeting session topics/focus areas and integrated theme: "Providing Services for the Cascading Effects of Intensifying Heat in a Rapidly Growing Region." The agenda will remain as similar as possible to last year's draft, with updates as needed. We hope you all stay safe and healthy during this time and keep a lookout for our upcoming CPASW announcements. Virtual meeting format/platform and registration information will be coming in early 2021. Please let us know if you have any questions ('contact us' on bottom of page).
The 18th Annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW) will bring together a diverse community to share developments in research and application of weather and climate information for societal decision-making. Participants will include researchers, service producers, resource managers, planners, practitioners, social scientists, and others making weather and climate-sensitive decisions. NOAA’s National Weather Service Climate Services Branch, Arizona State University, the Arizona State Climate Office, and many climate services partners are collaborating in the organization of the CPASW.
The workshop will convene virtually on April 20-22, 2021, for discussion centered on the theme of “Providing services for the cascading effects of intensifying heat in a rapidly growing region."
The workshop will address the following focus areas:
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.
The annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW), initiated in 2002 by the NOAA National Weather Service Climate Services Division, brings together a diverse group of climate researchers, climate product producers, and climate information users to share developments in research and applications of climate predictions for societal decision-making. A unique planning team, consisting of several NOAA climate services partners, organizes and hosts CPASW at a different location each year to ensure varying climate application focuses, and both regional and national perspectives.
