The National Earth System Prediction Capability Vision: Develop and implement the next generation integrated physical earth system prediction capability at weather and longer time scales to support hours-to-seasonal global prediction. To fulfill this vision, the National ESPC will:

  • Extend predictive capability to decades using muli-model, multi-agency ensembles
  • Use ensembles to identify and quantify uncertainty and risk
  • Advance computational and environmental numerical prediction science and technology
  • Enhance our understanding of complex interactions of the earth environment

About Us

The Earth System Prediction Capability (ESPC) was formed in 2010, with an updated Charter in 2016, between the original NUOPC partners with the addition of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Department of Energy (DOE), and National Science Foundation (NSF) to improve coordination and collaboration across federally sponsored environmental research and operational prediction communities for scientific development and operational implementation of improved global prediction at the weather-to-climate interface.
