8 WEATHER SCIENCE PROGRAM The overarching theme of the OSC is Seamless Prediction of the Earth System: from nowcasting through medium-range to seasonal forecasts. The science presented at the conference will range from basic research that extends our knowledge of processes and methods to the applied research required to put the prediction system together and assess the impacts of weather and climate events. The scientific program will be organized around five science themes: Data Assimilation and Observations; Predictability and Dynamical/Physical/Chemical Processes; Interactions between sub-systems; Prediction of the Earth system: putting it all together; Impacts of weather and climate events (joint session with UPC) A particular focus will be given also to major cross cutting themes, such as ensemble prediction. test footer 8

10 10 The overall theme of the OSC is Seamless Prediction of the Earth System: from nowcasting through medium-range to seasonal forecasts. With improved and seamless prediction capability as the scientific programme backdrop, the User, Application and Social Science Programme provides an open forum where the experiences and perspectives of a wide variety of information providers and users will be combined with the latest applications and methodological advances in social science to: Demonstrate and document recent progress, highlighting and sharing lessons from both successful and less successful projects and applications; Identify and deliberate areas of practice, social science research methods, and training and education requiring new or continued attention; Expand and connect the interdisciplinary weather and society community; and Develop conference positions and recommendations regarding the state and advancement of knowledge and practice.
