Read our blog for scientists’ perspectives on different areas of ECMWF’s work. Recent posts cover predicting the impact of new satellites on forecasts; radio frequency interference; the use of machine learning in weather forecasting; and our involvement in the EU-funded MAESTRO project.
A global numerical model of the Earth system underpins all ECMWF forecasts. It has been developed to encompass not just the atmosphere, but the ocean, waves, land and sea ice, and their interactions.
Forecast charts and data
We provide current forecasts, climate reanalyses and specific datasets. These are available via the web, point-to-point dissemination, data servers and broadcasting.
International collaboration is fundamental to the work of ECMWF, working with the EU and the meteorological community at large, including the World Meteorological Organization, space agencies, and scientists around the world.
Workshops and education
Education is a key element of our work at ECMWF, enabling our partners to get the most from ECMWF's services and develop an advanced understanding of forecasting.
ECMWF workshops are open to the worldwide meteorological community, though some training is restricted to member states.
