HIWPP Announces Open Data Initiative

HIWPP

The High Impact Weather Prediction Project (HIWPP) is a collaboration between a dozen or more organizations led by the NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) and the OAR/Office of Weather and Air Quality. Funded as part of the Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Supplemental Appropriations, the project aims to improve near term (from “now” to several weeks or months in the future) prediction of dangerous weather events including hurricanes, floods, and blizzards.

The HIWPP project team announced its Open Data Initiative on February 9, 2015. The goal of the initiative is to strengthen relationships between public, private, academic, and user communities within the weather enterprise. To achieve this, HIWPP will share output from models in advanced stages of development and invite feedback to model developers from the broader weather enterprise.
