Description:
Abstract: The Pacific Region Integrated Climatology Information Products (PRICIP) project is exploring how the climate-related processes that govern extreme storm events are expressed within and between three thematic areas: heavy rains, strong winds, and high seas. It involves analyses of historical records collected throughout the Pacific region, and the integration of these climatological analyses with near-real time observations to put the current weather into a longer-term perspective. This effort is a regional path finding activity towards the development of a national comprehensive coastal climatology program. The northern and central north Pacific, which includes Alaska and Hawaii, have been targeted as initial priority areas. Work will be carried out in other areas as resources permit to address storminess throughout the Pacific Region including the U.S. West Coast as well as American Flag and U.S. Affiliated Pacific Island jurisdictions.
Purpose: The Pacific Region Integrated Climatology Information Products (PRICIP) project arose out of a need to reduce the vulnerability of coastal communities to the economic, social, and environmental risks associated with coastal storms. PRICIP will improve our understanding of patterns and trends of storm frequency and intensity - storminess - within the Pacific region and develop a suite of integrated information products that can be used by emergency managers, mitigation planners, government agencies and decision-makers. The PRICIP project is the extreme climate element of the Pacific Climate Information System (PaCIS). PaCIS provides NOAA and its partners a programmatic framework and overall strategic guidance for the development and implementation of an integrated program of climate observations, research, modeling, forecasting, operational services, assessment, information management and education and outreach that will address the climate needs of the American Flag and U.S. Affiliated Pacific Islands.

Process Description: Theme-specific data integration and product development teams have been formed to carry out the PRICIP work. These teams are comprised of recognized agency and university-based experts in the area of climate-related processes that govern storminess. They include representatives from the NOAA National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), Center for Operational Products and Services (CO-OPS), Coastal Services Center (CSC), National Weather Service (NWS), and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), as well as the University of Hawaii, University of Alaska, University of Guam, Oregon State University, and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Team members met at an Expert Teams Project Planning Workshop held in San Francisco on June 20-21, 2006. This workshop provided an opportunity to share knowledge, craft detailed work plans, and establish roles and responsibilities for exploring the causes and consequences of storminess in the Pacific. Team leads have met formally on two occasions since the initial workshop - December 2006 and October 2007 - and have been meeting regularly via conference calls since that time to discuss the formulation of targeted information products and development of a derived data product suite. PRICIP is currently focused on the horizontal build-out of the fundamental derived data product tier and the vertical build-out of a single line of targeted information products. With respect to derived data products, for example, each theme team is delineating trends such as annual rates of change, and calculating annual, seasonal, and monthly event magnitudes, frequencies and durations. Theme teams are also delineating event return recurrence intervals via Generalized Extreme Value (GEV) analyses and will correlate event characteristics with regional climatological indices (e.g., ENSO and PDO). These analyses utilize key observing system data sets including NOAA Integrated Surface Hourly (ISH) mean sea level pressure and wind speed data; the Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN) precipitation dataset; the National Water Level Observing Network (NWLON) tide gauge records; the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) wave buoy records; and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Coastal Data Information (CDIP) buoy data. With respect to targeted information products, the PRICIP team has chosen to focus initially on hindcast-related products, and specifically formulation of the concept of historical storm event anatomies, as a means placing the current weather into an historical context.

Ordering Instructions: This utility is meant to enable easy access to the PRICIP derived data and product sets. Selecting from among the PRICIP parameters and submitting a query will generate a Google map that displays results of the query as a plotted set of interactive station/system icons. Selecting a particular icon will reveal basic information about the station/system and provide a list of links to specific PRICIP products and accompanying data sets (e.g., annual rates of change; annual, seasonal, and monthly event magnitudes, and event recurrence intervals of strong winds, heavy rains, and high seas). Links are also provided to station and data/product metadata.
Distribution Liability: PRICIP products and data sets represent the results of analyses by the theme-specific data integration and product development teams of NOAA Integrated Surface Hourly (ISH) mean sea level pressure and wind speed data; the Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN) precipitation dataset; the National Water Level Observing Network (NWLON) sea level station records; the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) wave buoy records; the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Coastal Data Information (CDIP) buoy data, and other data. Please note that, in its current form, this is a beta-version of the utility and its accompanying content elements. Also note that for: a) Strong winds, the station set is limited to Alaska (i.e., a portion of the northern North Pacific); b) Heavy Rains, the station set is limited to Hawaii (i.e., the central North Pacific); and c) High Seas, the sea level station set covers the entire Pacific whereas the wave buoy set is limited to portions of the northern, eastern, and central North Pacific.

Distribution Liability: As part of the initial build out, the PRICIP portal is serving a set of historical storm event anatomies as a targeted information product. These event anatomies include a summary of sector-specific socioeconomic impacts associated with a particular extreme event, as well as its historic context climatologically. The intent is to convey the impacts associated with extreme events and the causes of them in way that enable users to easily understand them. The event anatomies are also intended to familiarize users with in-situ and remotely sensed products typically employed to track and forecast weather and climate. The Hurricane Iniki event anatomy is one among an initial set of four currently under construction. It has been selected to illustrate prototypical content and to demonstrate how such content will be served. It is intended to provide a means to solicit input from the PRICIP Product Development Team and others prior to proceeding further towards completion of the other event anatomies in the initial set (i.e., Typhoon Chataan, Super Typhoon Pongsona, and Cyclone Heta). As such, it should be viewed as preliminary in nature and subject to revision.

Ordering Instructions: The event anatomies are web enabled using a standards-based, vendor-neutral and open-source enterprise portal and portlet architecture that, by design, provides personalization, single sign on, content aggregation from different sources while also being a web server for the presentation layer of the information systems. A portal may have, therefore, feature sophisticated personalization features to provide customized content to users (whereby portal home pages may have different set of portlets that render content that is most relevant to an user or business situation).
