Abstract

The Observing System Research and Predictability Experiment (THORPEX), a 10-year research and development program organized under the World Meteorological Organization (WMO)/ World Weather Research Program (WWRP) is planning three new international projects. The first two projects, Polar Prediction Project (PPP) and Subseasonal to Seasonal Prediction (S2S), have been formally established with their own International Coordination Office and Implementation Plan. The third, High-Impact Weather (HIWeather), has recently been established. The planning meeting attracted a diverse group of experts in atmospheric processes, predictability, numerical modeling, data assimilation, observing systems, forecasting, economics, and social science. The three international legacy projects share the common purpose of improving predictions of and public resilience to extreme events. A series of one-slide presentations by participants indicated priorities that need to be addressed through a coordinated U.S. effort. These mapped onto many goals of the legacy projects and emphasized the need for central infrastructure that contained all relevant data for high-impact weather events, including observations, numerical model output, and forecast products.
