Updated October 20, 2018 09:11:53 A satellite’s ability to predict and respond to global weather events has long been one of the major questions surrounding the use of technology in weather forecasting.
But in a major new report from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the agency has outlined what it’s learned about the subject in recent years.
It’s a key finding for climate models that are now widely used to predict the future.
The report, “Global Weather Models in a Time of Climate Change: How Do They Work?”, is published in the journal Weather and Climate Change.
The NOAA report is an update to the first NOAA report on satellite weather in the early 2000s.
The first report, published in 2006, looked at satellite weather forecasting and found it had many weaknesses.
In the latest report, NOAA researchers say they have developed a system to address some of those weaknesses.
“While we know satellite weather is very difficult to simulate, we’ve developed a framework to help forecast satellite weather,” said lead author Dr. Michael Osterholm, a researcher at the Center for Satellite Science and Engineering in Ames, Iowa.
“We are now able to simulate satellite weather from a wide range of angles, including from the surface to near the horizon.
In the new report, the researchers say that the ability to simulate the conditions that occur over the Earth from space has been key to the development of the climate models used by the agency to forecast the future and for understanding the climate changes that are expected to occur in the future, such as warming. “
In addition, the system is able to model changes in atmospheric pressure and temperature over a wide swath of the Earth’s atmosphere, allowing us to predict precipitation, storminess and other atmospheric features in real time.”
In the new report, the researchers say that the ability to simulate the conditions that occur over the Earth from space has been key to the development of the climate models used by the agency to forecast the future and for understanding the climate changes that are expected to occur in the future, such as warming.
The new model system is designed to “generate more accurate and reliable predictions of climate changes from satellite data,” the researchers wrote.
The system uses a set of equations, known as “predictors,” to simulate different aspects of weather conditions, including surface pressure, temperature and wind speed, and to determine how those different weather parameters will change in the near future.
“Our model is designed specifically to simulate what would happen in the atmosphere as a result of climate change,” said Dr. Robert E. Tilly, lead author of the new NOAA report.
“If we could simulate those changes, we could get a better idea of how climate change will affect the Earth.
That would allow us to get better predictions of how changes in greenhouse gases will affect human lives in the decades to come.”
In order to simulate atmospheric conditions from space, the model system includes a series of algorithms that “generates the atmosphere from data and simulate atmospheric parameters from the ground and on the ground,” Osterhamm said.
In this case, the models use a set for determining atmospheric pressure, and it then runs these algorithms to generate a map of the atmosphere.
The model then uses a combination of computer-generated images of the sky to determine the temperature, and the computer-simulated images of Earth to determine wind speeds and the amount of rain or snow on the surface.
The resulting model shows the air conditions in the United States as it would be during the middle of a solar maximum.
The data from the model are then fed into the software, which can then simulate how those atmospheric conditions will change as a consequence of climate-change effects.
The researchers used NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies’ Climate Prediction Center (CPPC) and NASA’s National Center for Atmospheric Research’s Climate Modeling and Climate Assessment Program to develop the model.
The NASA model was used for the research, and NOAA is also using the software.
“The ability to generate this map of Earth from the data is a major piece of this,” said Tilly.
“When the data are collected, they are fed into a very simple model, which is essentially a computer model.
But what the data don’t tell you is how that model works.”
The models used in the new study are not the only ones that use satellite data.
NASA’s Climate Prediction Centre is also developing a similar model for a wide variety of weather phenomena, including temperature, precipitation, and wind.
This is part of a larger effort to produce a global model that would be able to better predict how different weather conditions will occur, such that climate scientists could make better predictions about how climate changes will affect their lives.
