A new project harnessing data from a Japanese satellite could improve weather forecasting and allow officials to issue life-saving warnings before natural disasters, researchers say.
Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) think their weather prediction model, Coupled Ocean/Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System for Tropical Cyclones (COAMPS-TC), tracked 2017's Gulf of Mexico storms better ...
Prior to the 1960's, the biggest storms on Earth could take people by surprise. Someone standing on a beach in Florida might not know if a distant bank of clouds was a routine squall or … the harbinger of a powerful hurricane.
Many people know that tropical cyclones and hurricanes cause high winds and storm surges. But two of their other effects, heavy rainfall and inland flooding, can be just as dangerous and impact larger areas.
Dutifully processing 2.8 quadrillion mathematical calculations per second around the clock, these computers — each about the size of a school bus — are the nucleus of weather and climate forecasting in the United States ...
Knowing how the weather will behave in the near future is indispensable for countless human endeavors.
It wasn't that long ago that we lived in an entirely analogue world. From telephones to televisions and books to binders, digital technology was largely relegated to the laboratory.
Machine learning helps IBM boost accuracy of US Department of Energy solar forecasts by up to 30 percent
IBM Research today revealed that solar and wind forecasts it is producing using machine learning and other cognitive computing technologies are proving to be as much as 30 percent more accurate than ones created using conventional ...
Scientists now have an observational framework to help predict solar weather and how it will affect Earth.
A novel river flow forecast model, developed by Curtin University scientists, should provide more accurate predictions using a combination of current methods.
