Paul Roebber (Univ of Wisconsin - Milwaukee):Demonstration Project: Development of a Large Member Ensemble Forecast System for Heavy Rainfall using Evolutionary Programming.


Physics Workshop The DTC and NOAA will convene a workshop entitled ‘Parameterization of moist process for next-generation numerical weather prediction models’ on January 27-29 2015 at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, MD.

The workshop is intended to stimulate the development of moist process parameterization for the Next- Generation Global Prediction System (NGGPS) and similar global models at scales and resolutions ranging from synoptic- to convection-permitting. The theme of the workshop will also be highly relevant to current and future generation regional and mesoscale models. Observational, modeling and theoretical perspectives will be addressed. Details will be available at
