Toward Seamless Weather and Climate Earth-system Prediction

Gilbert Brunet,
Meteorological Research Division (MRD)
Environment Canada (ECCC)

This emerging challenge was at the centre of the World Weather Open Science Conference (Montreal, 2014). We will discuss some of the long term goals of this effort and provide examples of Earth-system modelling and prediction from urban scales to global scales.
