A seamless approach across spatial and temporal scales using the earth system modelling framework is the key for providing realistic prediction of weather and climate. Ensemble based forecasting and data assimilation techniques are being used for estimating the uncertainty and providing probabilistic forecasts to end users.
Weather and climate information play an important role in shaping the country’s economic and strategic activities. India is emerging as global player in various sectors and it has resulted in the increase in demands for accurate weather and climate prediction for applications in various sectors. Weather forecasting research in data assimilation and, weather and climate modelling (short, medium and seasonal) using computer-based Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models is a well-established practice now, which is being spearheaded in India by the...
