Research and Development (site: Reading, Bonn)

  • Development and evaluation of the ECMWF Integrated Forecasting System for use in km-scale ensembles, extended range prediction, climate and environmental reanalyses
  • Extension of surface-atmosphere tiling approach over land and water, cryosphere snow/ice, urban/forest canopy tiles for seamless coupling of the water, energy and carbon cycles
  • Artificial Intelligence applied to land-use/water-use change assessment (using satellites skin temperatures and machine learning) to detect land-use change and climate disturbances
