Global Modelling

Solving a set of equations forms the basis to forecasting the weather.

The Global Modelling section develops the Met Office global model, which is used across all timescales from Weather, Seasonal to Climate forecasting.

Diagnosing problems with the models is the first step towards solving problems and improving our forecasts and continual monitoring of the model's performance enables us to develop physically based and testable hypothesis of the causes of model problems and systematic biases. Working with experts across the office, and internationally, we then develop model changes which address them.
