Abstract:

The forecasting of extreme weather events is important for protecting life and quality of living. The prediction of climate variations on many time scales is equally important for planning adaptation and mitigation.What is our
capability to understand and predict phenomena over the entire weather-to-climate range - hourly-to-seasonal-to-annual-to-decadal-to-centennial? What are the prospects for understanding weather events superposed on the changing
climate under the influence of both natural and human-influenced factors, and being able to predict on spatial scales from global to regional? Can we develop a unified computational modeling system for seamless predictions and
projections?
