Abstract : The potential to leverage existing and planned efforts to produce intra-seasonal to seasonal and interannual climate predictions, by U.S. national laboratories participating in the National Multi- Model Ensemble (NMME) project and by U.S. Navy research and operational entities, for the purpose of advising and enhancing Navy operations will be exploited. The proposed work will build on a review of the existing and planned efforts at the relevant U.S. Navy centers and will enhance existing operational climatological products developed by the Climatology Division at NRL-Monterey and will seek to include Navy models in the NMME project. The accuracy, timeliness, and information content of Navy operational products intended to provide tailored long-range operational environmental information for planning and decision support can be significantly enhanced by the targeted application of dynamical ensemble predictions.
