Weather science

Active sensing from satellites can improve our forecasting of low-level winds, such as those in the vicinity of tropical cyclones.

Weather Science provides the forecasting capabilities that are used for routine operational short to medium range forecasting of the weather, the oceans and their impacts.

Activities include processing and assimilation of observations; developing forecast suite infrastructure; forecast evaluation; and optimisation of forecasts through post-processing. Weather Science also carries out research into improving ocean models and the dispersion model used for operational emergency response. Impacts research is focused on hazards such as flooding, air quality, windstorms and bathing water quality.
