Himawari-8 data assimilated simulation enables 10-minute updates of rain and flood predictions

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 14:42:00 EST

Using the power of Japan’s K computer, scientists from the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science and collaborators have shown that incorporating satellite data at frequent intervals—ten minutes in the case of this study—into weather prediction models can significantly improve the rainfall predictions of the models and allow more precise predictions of the rapid development of a typhoon.(image)
