MAP Science Team Meeting, March 7-9, 2007, Inn and Conference Center, University of Maryland University College, Adelphi, Maryland

The MAP Program hosted a science team meeting to discuss MAP community activities and future direction, including identification of the science themes that may be included in the MAP ROSES 08 solicitation. All PIs and CO-Is were invited to attend.

The MAP solicitation in 2004 funded a set of large multi-disciplinary proposals responsible for development and application of comprehensive modeling and assimilation systems. Also funded were a set of smaller scale proposals focused on key scientific questions; in particular, investigations which exercised and evaluated the performance of the modeling systems funded in the multi-disciplinary proposals.

The meeting included plenary oral presentations and poster presentations. In addition, the Software Integration and Visualization Office (SIVO) addressed IT issues, ESMF-related questions and general ‘engineering’ questions associated with MAP investigations.
