The EU-funded projects SPECS and PREFACE will jointly host a workshop on 'Initial Shock, Drift, and Bias Adjustment in Climate Prediction' in Barcelona, Spain, from 10 to 11 May 2016.

10 May 2016 - 11 May 2016
Barcelona, Spain

The aim of the workshop is to seek common ground on current strategies in understanding the physical processes behind the initial shock and drift in dynamical climate prediction for all time scales, and to formulate recommendations that will guide international future research activities. The question of bias adjustment will be considered as a necessary tool to engage with the users of the resulting climate information.

The discussions will be based on the activities already taking place in the SPECS and PREFACE European FP7 projects and contribute to the activities of the initial shock and drift project promoted by the Working Group on Seasonal-to-Interannual Prediction (WGSIP) of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).
