  Scripps researcher adapts global climate model to improve regional predictions "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows," Bob Dylan famously sang. But if you want to know how it will blow tomorrow, odds are you're going to check the forecast. Atmospheric prediction has improved immeasurably in the 45 years since Dylan sang "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Whether you're interested in tomorrow's high or the global heat index a decade from now, forecasters can...

Weather Forecasting Needs More Computing Power
2011-09-02 04:45:01

  Scientists think that they will be able to predict the weather down to an area of a few kilometers accurately, but they need more computing power in order to calculate the climate models. According to Reuters, a climate model is a computer-based version of the Earth´s climate system, based on physics and complex equations. These models can be used for weather forecasting, understanding the climate and projecting climate change. Alan Thorpe, director general of the...

tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
