NOAA's 11th Annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW)

April 23-25, 2013 in Logan, Utah. Integrated Theme: Climate Information for Natural Resource Management

Organizers invite abstracts demonstrating a broad array of climate information applications in water, energy, land, forest, wildlife, habitat, and other natural resources management. Presentations may illustrate the use of climate prediction in special-purpose programs such as wildfire risk reduction, species recovery, ecosystem restoration, and flood and drought response. Special emphasis may be on the synthesis of scientific information for user applications, various aspects of social sciences as a cross-cutting discipline for extended range preparedness, vulnerability assessments, or scenario development and planning. Presentations may focus on examples of web-based tools for climate-sensitive decision support, sustainability of resources, product usability, and performance evaluation. We encourage submission of abstracts on topics of environmental data stewardship including data access, distribution, quality, and availability, and their impact on decision support. We also invite discussions on climate science and service partnership between government, non-government, public and private organizations.

Abstract deadline is January 15, 2013.
