Overview

NEED TO ADD National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHS’s) in the least-developed countries have the need for regional weather and hydrology forecast systems that provide timely information to support impact-based forecast operations in an effort to minimize losses from phenomena such as floods, storm surges, and wind damage. NMHSs in least-developed countries often lack infrastructure such as affordable and reliable commercial power, high-speed internet links develop and facilities to maintain a high-performance computing (HPC) system generate reliable forecasts. With the recent innovation of global cloud computing, implementing a sustainable regional forecast system for a NMHS has now become possible. The goal of this project is to develop a cloud-computing numerical weather prediction (NWP) framework that is designed to be adapted and implemented at NHMS’s. This framework than can extended to other hydrometeorological applications such as flood forecasting, tropical cyclone forecasting, and seasonal prediction.
