This year, Dr. Thomas Delworth, a Senior Scientist at NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, received the prestigious Presidential Rank Award. This honor is awarded to a select group of federal employees for their extraordinary achievements. In Dr. Delworth’s case, it recognizes his significant contributions to the field of climate science.
Operational models are the backbone of weather and climate prediction, allowing experts to make informed predictions about the weather a few days from now — or the climate several decades into the future.
GSD/CIRES/CIRA researchers to present at the Developmental Testbed Center annual Science Advisory Board meeting
September 19-20: Researchers from GSD, CIRES, and CIRA will present research progress at the annual Developmental Testbed Center (DTC) Science Advisory Board Meeting. The DTC is a distributed facility where the Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) community can test and evaluate new models and techniques for use in research and operations. The DTC is a NOAA/NCAR collaboration, and the board is made of members of the U.S. NWP community including GSD's Curtis Alexander.
GSD and CIRES researchers will attend and present at the Developmental Testbed Center Science Advisory Board Meeting
GSD and CIRES scientists will present Developmental Testbed Center (DTC) activities for the annual DTC Science Advisory Board SAB Meeting. The DTC is a distributed NOAA/NCAR facility where the numerical weather prediction community can test and evaluate new models and techniques for use in research and development. The board is made up of numerical weather prediction experts from the U.S. and guides the future path of DTC activities. GSD's Curtis Alexander is a member of the SAB.
