INNOVIM, LLC, has been awarded a two-year task order to provide scientific support services to the Climate Prediction Center (CPC), a service center in the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), part of the National Weather Service (NWS), a line office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The CPC is a combined operational and development center responsible for extended- and long-range prediction, monitoring the global climate system, identifying and evaluating significant climate anomalies and providing climate information products based on user needs. It is also responsible for: acquisition, processing and dissemination of current climate data, information and analyses; the development of improved techniques for climate prediction and linking weather and climate variability and extremes.
INNOVIM’s 40-person CPC workforce, collocated at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland, supports and improves NOAA’s subseasonal and seasonal prediction and climate monitoring activities. The Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act of 2017 prioritized weather research to improve weather data, modeling, computing, forecasts, and warnings for the protection of life and property and the enhancement of the national economy. The Act included a focus on reliable and timely foundational forecasts of subseasonal and seasonal temperature and precipitation. INNOVIM’s President and COO, Ms. Cindi Brown, stated, “we are proud to continue our support to CPC’s mission, helping provide real-time products and services that predict and describe climate variations on timescales from weeks to a year, while promoting the effective management of climate risk and a climate-resilient society.”
