Asheville, NC

  Registration is now closed.

INTRODUCTION

NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) and the Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites — North Carolina (CICS-NC), and NCDC’s partners invite you to attend a collaborative workshop discussion focused on precipitation data and how it is used in various decision-making capacities. This workshop is one of a series of Climate Data and Applications workshop series. 

WORKSHOP DATES

December 3 and 4, 2013

WORKSHOP LOCATION

NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center, Veach-Baley Federal Building, 151 Patton Avenue Asheville, North Carolina, 28801

OBJECTIVES

This workshop discussion focuses on the different types of precipitation data from in-situ and remotely-sensed observations, as well as examples of how the data is useful in various applications examples. The workshop objectives are to: 

  • Discuss updates and trends of precipitation from various data sources
  • Determine knowledge gaps relative to the current operational suite of products
  • Assess current and future uses and applications of precipitation data
  • Increase understanding of users’ needs for precipitation and assess the science potential for meeting these need
  • Continue to engage with industry, academia, and solution providers interested in managing their risks, particularly with respect to climate adaptation

CLIMATE DATA AND APPLICATIONS WORKSHOP SERIES

The “Climate Data and Applications Workshop” series is compromised of two-day workshop interactions focused on informing users about NCDC data and information that fits the needs of various industry sectors.  As part of the workshop, participants will engage with specific U.S. economic sectors that use climate and environmental information and explore potential future research needs. The workshop will bring together business leaders, decision-makers, entrepreneurs, innovators, and scientists to discuss NCDC’s climate data, applications of the data, and future uses of climate information. Through this collaborative discussion, we hope to uncover innovative opportunities for the market as well as research needs that can be provided to the scientific and academic community.
