Challenges and opportunities in research on climate, weather, water and environment: research aspects of an Enhanced Climate; Weather, Water and Environmental Prediction Framework
Advances in the geophysical sciences and computing have led to a number of opportunities for WMO. First, the distinction across timescales from weather to climate prediction is becoming more blurred; second the incorporation of chemical, hydrological and biological processes into weather and climate models will allow a much broader range of environmental parameters to be forecast, including air quality, flooding, sand and dust storms, changes in vegetation etc. Third, many of the applications and impacts of weather and climate share a common underlying scientific basis.
