The long-term forecasts provided by the ECMWF (European Center of Weather Forecasts), allow EcoClimasol researchers to determine:
- Rainfall deficit or excess Probability Index.
- Temperature increase or decrease Probability Index.
Improving your Long-Term Forecasts : A Permanent Scientific Challenge
Long-Term forecasts try to estimate the next 6 months average climate. They provide weather trends for parameters such as temperature and precipitation at a regional scale. In order to implement forecasts, scientists use climate models to simulate the evolution of the atmosphere and the oceans as well as its interactions. Improving long-term forecasts remains a permanent scientific challenge.
