The National Earth System Prediction Capability (National ESPC) will improve environmental predictions and help decision makers address critical policy and planning issues by extending the National predictive capability from hours and days to seasonal, annual, and decadal time periods through improved, coupled global environmental prediction. If you have questions or ideas, please contact our team!


The National Earth System Prediction Capability held an interagency workshop June 4-5, 2019, to assess the needs, current capabilities, and emerging science in the Federal enterprise for environmental prediction on the 2 to 30 year time frame. The final workshop report for Building an Interannual to Decadal Prediction and Projection Capability for Decision Support is now available.
