National Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (NCMRWF), Noida will be the first to make the full use of the engine portal developed at C-DACs Thiruvananthapuram unit. Beta versions are already installed in Param Sheersh (4-terraflob supercomputing facility) in Shillong and Param Gen in Jorhat, NCMRWF head AK Bohra told FE.
Like their worldwide counterparts, scientists at NCMRWF make medium-rage and long-range forecasts by using detailed global numerical weather prediction models running on high-performance computing (HPC) platforms. It is possible for even butterfly movements to make perceptible tinkering in the results. But the CHReME advantage could sharpen accuracy, location-specificity, consistency and range of countrys medium-range weather guidance and improve credibility of our agro-advisory services, said Bohra.
