The first week of the 2017 Summer Experiment kicked off this morning with an introductory presentation about the three different experimental forecasts desks.
During lunch, Adam Schnapp from MDL gave a seminar about the latest LAMP upgrades, and future work beyond 2017. We were also joined by NCEP director Bill Lapenta, and NWS director Louis Uccellini for a few moments post-lunch as they were excited to see what was underway already in the testbed.
The afternoon continued with more interaction at the various desks, with lots of interest at the SFO
The day concluded with discussion about various data feed issues and possible risks for unavailable data in the days to follow. We will hope for the productive days ahead! Tuesday is a full slate of forecasting at all desks so stay tuned!
