Many critical decisions affecting both private and public-sector activities depend on reliable information about weather events and climate variability expected in the period three to four weeks ahead. The SubX* subseasonal forecast project combines forecasts from seven agencies — six U.S. and one Canadian — to explore the potential for improving prediction for this range with multiple dynamical computer forecasts.
Applications in this subtopic might include activities that explore various strategies for improving subseasonal forecasts generated by SubX or similar systems. This will create calibration methods and verification statistics that may encourage and justify use of the
forecasts by decision makers in weather and climate sensitive activities.
