1 > Wind Forecast Ankara, 5 th march, 2010 Weather forecast is no longer an empirical knowledge, actually, weather forecast is based in a numercial approach that takes advantage of atmospheric science, met station data, satellite images and automatic self- training. 1

2 Can we anticipate the future? Yes, with physical laws of the atmosphere: with initial conditions, we can predict future conditions. We need atmospheric data through a 3D grid: over the entire globe! 2

5 NWP: it is a world wide tool. DIFERENTS ESCALES 5

6 INITIAL DATA NEEDED SAT Radar Buoys Rawsonda Met station data 6

10 Wind forecasts onshore and offshore. Automatic procedures: how to use numerical weather forecasts? 10

11 PREVISIONES NÁUTICAS: Air quality control: services based in wind forecasts. Los modelos de dispersión analizan el terreno en alta resolución. 11

13 Media forecasts SCREEN 13

14 and others: take care with quality Final weather forecasts seems the similar! 14

15 Wind forecasts is applied in forensic analysis. Wind wave forecasts 15

16 Even rainfall forecasts: not the same error Ejemplo de aplicación de modelos de simulación numérica para previsión de lluvias en puntos concretos. PREDICCIONES PERSONALIZADAS: modelización en todo el mundo a las resoluciones necesarias 16

17 Samples: climatic database managment. See: SERVICIOS GENERALES Numerosos y variados clientes requieren boletines de predicción objetivos y sintéticos. La toma de decisiones debe partir de informaciones objetivas, elaboradas por expertos y con la información justa y necesaria. 17

18 Statistics model Real data of wind and production are used to adjust computational forecasts. MOS (Mean Output Statistic): empirical relation between historical data and forecasts parameters Real time data are used to adjust final forecasts. Predict ors P 1,P 2,...
