Workshop Goals

The past decade and a half has engendered a number of insightful community reports addressing the state of the U.S. weather research and operations enterprise. These reports have described numerous opportunities and provided recommendations for improvements in observations, physical understanding, prediction, socioeconomic impacts, communications, and inter-institutional interaction and collaboration. The goals of the workshop are to undertake a high-level evaluation and assessment of the progress that has been made to date in these areas, identify emerging requirements that were not previously recognized, and provide priority recommendations for new or increased emphasis.
