Developmental Testbed Center (DTC) is working with the Earth Prediction Innovation Center (EPIC) to establish community requirements for a Hierarchical System Development (HSD) . This effort is focused on accelerating the rate of improving numerical prediction across scales using the Unified Forecast System (UFS). The requirements will be captured in a white paper. We would like to invite you to provide your input via this survey. The goal of the survey is to identify:
What gaps you feel exist in the UFS HSD research-to-operations framework?
What ideas you have to improve collaborative efforts between process-level study groups and model development (e.g. UFS Applications)?
What areas of HSD used in the community should be highlighted in DTC’s white paper?
The survey has 13 questions with a mix of multiple choice and short answers. It will take 10-15 minutes to complete and is open until Friday, April 28th, 2023. Please take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to provide us with this valuable feedback on how you would like to engage with the UFS.
