Improving international weather and climate prediction


Accurate weather and climate forecasts have an important effect on the economy, agriculture, and public safety, which means improved forecasting methods benefit society through numerous and diverse channels. Central to these forecasts are the use of computer models. 

Mathematics researchers at the University of South Wales have made significant contributions to weather and climate prediction models used by various agencies around the world with impact on practitioners and enhanced performance.   

These include numerical schemes constructed for and used by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and new test cases to evaluate computer models for weather and climate predictions have been developed and used by numerous organisations around the world, including European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts and Deutscher Wetterdienst with concomitant impact on their stakeholders.
