Stan receives funding for diagnostics package for MJO-Teleconnections

Cristiana Stan, Professor and Associate Chair, Atmospheric, Oceanic and Earth Sciences (AOES),received funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for: "Diagnostics Package For MJO-Teleconnections."

Stan's Co-Principal Investigators on this project include: Daniela Domeisen of ETH Zurich; Chaim Garfienkel of Hebrew University; Andrea Jenney of the University of California, Irvine; Hyemi Kim of Stony Brook University; F. Martin Ralph of the University of California, San Diego; and Yutian Wu of Columbia University.

Co-Investigators on the project include: Tara Jensen of the Research Applications Laboratory at the National Center for Atmospheric Research; Jiabao Wang of the University of California, San Diego; and Cheng Zheng of Columbia University.

The main objective of this project is to expand model diagnostics developed by this group and unify them in a portable package that can be applied to evaluation of the Unified Forecast System (UFS) prototypes. The UFS prototypes evolve into systems for NOAA‘s operational numerical weather prediction applications.

The diagnostics package will allow a direct comparison of UFS to other Subseasonal to Seasonal (S2S) operational forecast systems.

Stan received $579,562 from NOAA for this project. Funding began in Aug. 2022 and will end in late July 2024.
