I am a graduate student, so fairly new to climate forecasts. I have had some experience using seasonal climate forecasts and watershed modelling.
Local or state government
Currently completing Master's thesis research in evaluating the use of seasonal climate forecasts to drive a drought index model for use in predicting residential irrigation demand.
Interested in the applicability of seasonal climate forecasts to agricultural and water resources planning (especially in their utility to increase resilience to periods of flood/drought in developing nations).
Interested in the use of climate forecasting (both long and short term) in water resource and ecosystem restoration planning.
The Florida Climate Institute (FCI) is a multi-disciplinary network of national and international research and public organizations, scientists, and individuals concerned with achieving a better understanding of climate variability and change.
