Toward Seamless Weather and Climate Earth-system Prediction

The remarkable increase in skill of current weather forecasts has made society more and more dependent on them day to day for a whole range of decision making. Climate change is now widely accepted and the realization is growing rapidly that it will affect every person in the world profoundly through high-impact climate and weather events.

One of the important challenges of our societies is to remain at the cutting-edge of modelling and predicting the evolutionof the fully coupled environmental system: atmosphere(weather and composition), oceans, land surface (physical and biological), and cryosphere. This effort will provide anincreasingly accurate and reliable service across all thesocio-economic sectors that are vulnerable to the effects of adverse weather and climatic conditions, whether now or in the future. This emerging challenge was at the center of the World Weather Open Science Conference (Montreal, 2014). The outcomes of the conference are described in the WorldMeteorological Organization (WMO) book: SeamlessPrediction of the Earth System: from Minutes to Months, (G. Brunet, S. Jones, P. Ruti Eds., WMO-No. 1156, 2015). It is freely available on line at the World Meteorological Organization website. We will discuss some of the long-term goals of this effort and provide examples of Earth-system modelling and prediction from urban scales to global scales.
