The Vision is On Track!
Higher resolution global models-ECMWF now T-511 (39 km) to be T799 (25 km) in 2004-05.
Continued advances in limited-area, nested models (need will never go away!)
- Weather Research and Forecast Model
- Very-high resolution coupled dispersion model
Observations + data assimilation + models ? information-Earth Information System
- Not necessary to observe everything, everywhere, all the time to get everything, everywhere, all the time
