The GIFS-TIGGE working group is one of three THORPEX working group, the others being DAOS (Data Assimilation and Observing Systems) and PDP (Predictability and Dynamical Processes). The THORPEX GIFS-TIGGE working group coordinates the development, maintenance and exploitation of the TIGGE project, and work towards a future Global Interactive Forecast System (GIFS).

After the completion of THORPEX, the role of the GIFS-TIGGE and PDP working groups will be taken over by a new WWRP working group on Predictability, Dynamics and Ensemble Forecasting (PDEF), with the development and maintenance of TIGGE coordinated by the TIGGE Panel.

This web page provides a complete set of reports from the GIFS-TIGGE working group, from the initial development of TIGGE, the development of probabilistic products to support GIFS through to plans for the THORPEX legacy.


Reports from the GIFS-TIGGE working group are listed below, in reverse time order.  The reports include minutes of working group meetings, and reports by the co-chairs to the THORPEX International Core Steering Committee (ICSC) meetings. Note that presentations from some of the meetings are also available from the WMO THORPEX website.
