Predicting Seasonal Weather, NSF special report on the improved forecast approach


The AER Seasonal Forecast approach is highlighted in a special report “Predicting Seasonal Weather” by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

“A forecast model developed by AER scientist Judah Cohen has achieved on-target forecasts for major cities in the industrialized countries.”

“Weather impacts peoples' lives and the global economy on a daily basis. Improving our ability to predict severe events such as the cold weather in the eastern U.S. this past winter, and the heavy snow during the prior winter, has obvious benefits. The success of Cohen’s real-time forecasts offers a way to improve our ability to anticipate important climate events.” -- Jay Fein, program director in NSF’s climate dynamics program.
