  • 23. WCI Summary• Applying climate indices to scenario planning is the classic case of ‘Decision Making Under Uncertainty’. However, using a traditional forecast as an operational tool is difficult beyond a 7-10 day window (introduction of error, etc.)• With more data and more tools to analyze data, current climate indices can be applied, as well as new climate indices developed (teleconnections)• Risk Quantification becomes an operational issue as well as a financial issue• NASA/NOAA data repositories are a wonderful testbed for the applied data scientist• Use reanalysis information (NASA/NOAA) to monitor, and adjust, prior assumptions. Flexibility enables robustness.
