The APEC Climate Center (APCC) hosted the 2021 Climate Prediction Workshop (CPW 2021), held on 10-11 May 2021 at the Busan Exhibition & Convention Center (BEXCO) conference hall. The theme of the workshop was “The Now & Future of Climate Prediction Technology Development”. APCC’s CPW 2021 provided a platform for domestic climate prediction experts to share their latest research achievements and experiences in the field of climate prediction. During the workshop, participants had the chance to participate in in-depth discussions regarding technology development.
The aim of the workshop was to contribute to the production and distribution of low uncertainty and high reliability climate prediction information. Various climate prediction experts in Korea from various organizations and universities, such as the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA), National Institute of Meteorological Sciences (NIMS), Universities, attended the workshop.
The workshop consisted of 4 sessions:
- Recent Domestic and International Climate Monitoring and Analysis
- Development Trend of Climate Prediction Models
- New Climate Prediction Techniques
- The Now and Future of Climate Prediction Information Delivery
APCC hopes that this workshop will promote the production and distribution of high quality climate forecast information. Effective monitoring of extreme climate events, such as heat waves and typhoons, can help reduce damages to the national economy, lives, and property.
APCC’s CPW 2021 was conducted in compliance with strict quarantine measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 infection.
