Vintzileos Presents on Heat Extreme Forecasts

In early October, ESSIC assistant research scientist Augustin Vintzileos presented his recent research at the NOAA/Climate Prediction Center’s 41st Climate Diagnostics and Prediction Workshop at the University of Maine. Vintzileos’s talk addressed the forecasting of heat extremes, which according to NOAA are one of the most dangerous natural hazards.  Vintzileos and a team used the Subseasonal Excessive Heat Outlook System (SEHOS) that utilzes NOAA’s Global Ensemble Forecast System (GEFS) to create forecasts for the 2016 summer.
