NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO) originated the Subseasonal Experiment (SubX) in FY16, with an initial plan for two years of work. The project focused on improving subseasonal predictions, largely targeting the Week 3-4 outlooks from NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center (CPC), and providing a research and experimental forecast dataset for the community to explore sources of subseasonal predictability and quantify the associated prediction skill in leading modeling systems. Contributing modeling centers are NCEP, NCAR, NRL, ESRL, NASA, Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). Contributing academic partners are from multiple organizations, including George Mason University (GMU), Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS), IRI (International Research Institute), Florida International University (FIU), University of Texas (UT) Austin, NOAA/CPC, and NOAA’s Environmental Modeling Center (EMC).
