The Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW) was initiated in 2002 by the NOAA National Weather Service Climate Services Branch. This annual event brings together climate researchers, climate product producers, and climate information users to share developments in research and applications of climate predictions for societal decision-making.
A unique planning team, consisting of several NOAA climate services partners, organizes and hosts CPASW at a different location each year to ensure varying climate application focuses, and both regional and national perspectives.
