North American Seasonal Forecast System (NASFS)
The North American Seasonal Forecast System (NASFS) will improve seasonal and multi-seasonal predictions for North America by combining different models of known performance to leverage on existing models to improve skills. Objectives of this activity are:
Continue with current National Multi-Model Ensemble (NMME) research/experimental project towards improved seasonal forecast products over North America and continued delivery of real-time experimental products.
- Reach mutual trilateral agreement (between Mexico, Canada and USA) about an Operational partnership on a shared Seasonal Prediction System as an outcome of NMME
- Make the transition from NMME to Operations
- Develop NMME future 5-year plan to enhance NMME capabilities to better meet user needs and Evaluate the potential applications of NMME forecast from both, technical and end-user perspectives
