EMC > GLOBAL BRANCH > MISSION
GLOBAL CLIMATE & WEATHER MODELING
        The Global Climate And Weather Modeling Branch conducts a program of research and development in support of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) operational forecasting mission for global prediction. This research and development in global modeling includes four dimensional data assimilation of satellite and conventional observations on a global scale, advanced numerical techniques for modeling the atmosphere and interactions between the atmosphere, ocean and land surfaces, parameterization of sub-grid scale processes in the atmosphere, ocean and land surfaces, development of a climate data assimilation system and reanalysis studies for archival and use by the scientific community, international aviation product development, diagnostic studies of global model performance, data quality control and evaluation of new observing systems, and support for tropical prediction. The Global Climate And Weather Modeling Branch publishes research results in various media for dissemination to the world oceanographic and meteorological community.
