The Working Group on Seasonal to Interannual Prediction (WGSIP) aims to develop a programme of numerical experimentation for seasonal-to-interannual variability and predictability, with an emphasis on assessing and improving predictions. Research goals are to develop appropriate data assimilation, model initialization and forecasting procedures for seasonal-to-interannual predictions, with consideration of factors such as observing system evaluation, use of ensemble and probabilistic methods, statistical and empirical enhancements, and measures of forecast skill.
