Meteorological risk: extra-tropical cyclones, tropical cyclones and convective storms

In Science for disaster risk management 2017: knowing better and losing less, Vol. 28034 (2017), pp. 246-256


[Excerpt: Conclusions and key messages] [::Partnership] Collaboration between forecast providers and end users in real time is essential during DRM, since the interpretation of the available information, the uncertainty associated with it and how this changes as new information becomes available should be made in consultation with qualified meteorologists and National Meteorological Services in particular. Information sharing, particularly observational, impact and warning data across national boundaries in real time, is of key importance. Improvements in forecasts will in part be driven by the interaction between fundamental atmosphere and ocean science with operational forecasting, so continued collaboration between forecasting centres and universities and ...

Well-estimated global surface warming in climate projections selected for ENSO phase

Nature Clim. Change, Vol. 4, No. 9. (20 September 2014), pp. 835-840,


The question of how climate model projections have tracked the actual evolution of global mean surface air temperature is important in establishing the credibility of their projections. Some studies and the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report suggest that the recent 15-year period (1998–2012) provides evidence that models are overestimating current temperature evolution. Such comparisons are not evidence against model trends because they represent only one realization where the decadal natural variability component of the model climate is generally not in phase with ...


El Niño tests forecasters

Nature, Vol. 508, No. 7494. (2 April 2014), pp. 20-21,


[Excerpt] As hints emerge of a major weather event this year, poor data could thwart attempts to improve predictions. The first sign of a brewing El Niño weather pattern came in January, as trade winds that normally blow from the east reversed course near Papua New Guinea. Barrelling back across the tropical Pacific Ocean, they began to push warm water towards South America. Now climate scientists and forecasters are on high alert. A major El Niño event — a periodic warming of waters ...

Flood management in a complex river basin with a real-time decision support system based on hydrological forecasts

Vol. 48, No. EPFL-BOOK-172964. (2011)


In alpine valleys with strong urban development, river training works for flood safety become more and more difficult to implement because of economic and environmental constraints. Thus flood management has a great importance especially in river basins equipped with storage power plants having a large retention potential. To reduce the flood risk in the Upper Rhone River basin in the Cantons of Vaud and Valais, the MINERVE flood forecast system was developed. It aims an optimized flood management by taking advantage ...


The Operational Global Icosahedral–Hexagonal Gridpoint Model GME: Description and High-Resolution Tests

Monthly Weather Review, Vol. 130, No. 2. (1 February 2002), pp. 319-338,<0319:togihg>;2


Abstract The German Weather Service (Deutscher Wetterdienst) has recently developed a new operational global numerical weather prediction model, named GME, based on an almost uniform icosahedral?hexagonal grid. The GME gridpoint approach avoids the disadvantages of spectral techniques as well as the pole problem in latitude?longitude grids and provides a data structure extremely well suited to high efficiency on distributed memory parallel computers. The formulation of the discrete operators for this grid is described and evaluations that demonstrate their second-order accuracy are ...


The new ECMWF VAREPS (Variable Resolution Ensemble Prediction System)

Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society, Vol. 133, No. 624. (April 2007), pp. 681-695,
Keywords: europe   forecast   meteorology  


The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Variable Resolution Ensemble Prediction System (VAREPS) is a system designed to provide skilful predictions of small-scale, severe-weather events in the early forecast range, and accurate large-scale forecast guidance in the extended forecast range (say beyond forecast day 7). In this work, first the rationale behind VAREPS is presented, and then the performance of VAREPS with a truncation at forecast day 7, i.e. TL399L40(d0–7) and TL255L40(d7–15), is discussed and compared to the performance of ...


The ECMWF Ensemble Prediction System: Methodology and validation

Q.J.R. Meteorol. Soc., Vol. 122, No. 529. (1 January 1996), pp. 73-119,
Keywords: ensemble   forecast   mathematics   meteorology  


The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Ensemble Prediction System (EPS) is described. In addition to an unperturbed (control) forecast, each ensemble comprises 32 10-day forecasts starting from initial conditions in which dynamically defined perturbations have been added to the operational analysis. The perturbations are constructed from singular vectors of a time-evolution operator linearized around the short-range-forecast trajectory. These singular vectors approximately determine the most unstable phase-space directions in the early part of the forecast period, and are estimated using ...
