Weather and Climate Models

CFAN scientists are actively conducting research on evaluating and improving weather and climate models:

 

  • Evaluating the predictability and prediction skill of seasonal forecast models, decadal climate model projections, and regional climate models

  • Advancing the interpretation of ensemble forecasts

  • Development of parameterizations to improve regional and global climate models
