  • Seamless climate services enabling
  • BBetter management of energy, agriculture, water, etc., through analyses, observations, and predictions
  • AAssessment of environmental impacts of natural and anthropogenically induced changes, and the effects of remedial actions
  • Mission
  • Timely delivery to decision-makers of
  • Data and products
  • Expert assessments
  • Predictions of climate variability and change on intra-seasonal to centennial time scales
  • Basic ComponentsExecutive Committee:AA’s for NWS, NESDIS, OARClimate Observations andServices Program BoardNOAA Climate ServicesManagementAdvisory PanelCOS ProgramOfficeNOAA Climate ServicesClimate Observations and Services Program BoardAnts Leetmaa (Chair) – Geophysical Fluid Dyn.

  • Carbon maps of the future:
  • • Fully dynamic, model-data
  • fusion products globally
  • • Local scale (10s of km)
  • • Real time
  • Future improvements needed:
  • Model-data fusion methods
  • Coupling with weather models
  • Satellite data/in situ validation
  • U.S. Climate Reference NetworkReal-time Network Performance Monitoring
