INTERAGENCY WEATHER RESEARCH COORDINATION COMMITTEE

iwrcc Purpose

The Interagency Weather Research Coordination Committee (IWRCC) promotes and helps to coordinate basic and applied U.S. research activities aimed at a better fundamental understanding and improved prediction of high impact weather with a potential for future socioeconomic and environmental benefits, including applications in support of weather-sensitive decision making at Federal, State, and other agencies (i.e., “high impact weather research”). In particular, IWRCC helps to (a) map U.S. agency weather research priorities onto the THORPEX legacy projects; (b) articulate US interests in the execution of WMO/WWRP projects, and (c) explore and engage with new national and international weather research initiatives associated with the legacy projects. IWRCC provides a forum where agencies can best leverage efforts among themselves and in the international community to achieve agency goals.
