The SRNWP-PEPS workshop takes place right after the 3rd Workshop on Short Range EPS (10th-12th ) at the same location and is open to all the participants of this latter workshop. Information on travelling to Italy and accommodation in Rome is provided by http://www.meteoam.it.

Any specific issues you wish to discuss are welcome. The agenda is:



      Calibrated forecast Products

      Use of SRNWP-PEPS forecasts

      Further developement

      Operational and commercial use


The recent results of verification will be presented and the Ensemble Verification Toolbox will be introduced.

The status of the operational calibration system will be reported and an overview of the research activities using SRNWP-PEPS forecasts will be given.


Please do not hesitate to contact the SRNWP-PEPS team at DWD for any comments, remarks and questions.
