As NOAA evolves to build a more Weather Ready Nation (WRN), it looks to provide not only products, but also Impact-Based Decision Support Services (IDSS). INNOVIM is committed to providing the most advanced scientific capabilities and ensuring our work at NOAA consistently meets user needs and effectively conveys climate and weather information and risks. As we continue to support the development of more accurate and timely outlooks and forecasts, we also explore mechanisms for feedback and more consistent lines of communication with users (e.g. Google Analytics, surveys, webinars, newsletters). We vet outreach materials, graphics, and tools with risk communication best practices.
The work our staff does at NOAA includes the following:
INNOVIM also helps guarantee that NOAA’s climate information is fully translated to a more climate-resilient society by developing and applying statistical-dynamical methods for precipitation and temperature forecasts. In support of this work we calibrate Week 3-4 temperature and precipitation in winter and summer seasons based on an ensemble regression method and predict/bridge temperature and precipitation using indices as predictors in ensemble regression. INNOVIM also evaluates the probabilistic forecast skill with calibration, bridging, and merging to forecasts.
INNOVIM’s approach guarantees that NOAA’s climate information is fully translated to a more climate-resilient society.
INNOVIM’s capabilities span the data lifecycle. Our scientists and engineers create and collect data through sensors located on Earth and in space, manage the infrastructure that supports large-scale data analysis, and transform the results into actionable information through data visualization techniques and decision-making systems.
INNOVIM serves US government agencies including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Department of Defense (DoD).
