The Met Office building surrounded by lawn and trees

Technology

The supercomputer is the engine room of Met Office science and services and its capacity dictates the level of granularity, complexity and certainty that can be delivered through our weather forecasts, climate predictions and climate change projections.

Delivery of the benefits of investment in our supercomputing depend critically on the skill of our scientific software engineering and technical workforce.

With increased supercomputing capability come increasing volumes of data. Extracting scientific value from those data requires continual development in improved data management, archiving and sharing capabilities, especially with our science partners.
