The 20th Annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW)
The Collider | Asheville, North Carolina
May 9-11, 2023
Understanding Socio-economic Value of Climate Data, Prediction, Information, and Services
The 20th Annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW) brings 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, National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies (NCICS), and many other climate services partners are collaborating in the organization of the 2023 CPASW. For this year’s theme, we especially invite participants in the areas of social science, climate extension and communication, climate-informed decision making, and developers/providers that specialize in decision support.
For more information about the host city, hotel accommodations, the venue, or to view the latest version of the agenda, please visit the CPASW website.
The Workshop will address the following Focus Areas:
Linking Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBES) to Climate Services
- Products and Tools (GIS, surveys, etc.)
- Analysis, findings, and recommendations including methods for adding economic value to climate products
- Applications of SBES
- Service equity
- Subseasonal to seasonal (S2S) decisions
- Climate change planning and risk mitigation
- Climate information services for infrastructure
Improving Data, Prediction, and Attribution to Understand and Communicate the Risk of Extreme Events and Response Strategies
- Impact on economy and risk management of changing nature of extreme events
- Data to decisions, including datasets and database quality control and management (applying data to facilitate improved decision making decisions)
- Applications of modern technologies
- Cloud utilities (e.g., NODD - NOAA Open Data Dissemination, LCAT - Local Climate Analysis Tool, etc)
- AI-driven decision-making tools
Weather, water, and climate extremes are a unifying issue across all of these focus areas contributing to significant impacts on the economy and society. Applications of climate information at various timescales, including sub-seasonal to seasonal and beyond, help inform preparedness activities for disruptive events and long-term changes, supporting resilient communities and their economies. Infusing social, behavioral, and economical sciences will provide better guidance for applications of climate science for provision of the most impactful services for society.
