Simulated Forecast Image products (SIM) are based on the sensor characteristics of the Meteosat-10 satellite. They are generated from the model forecast fields using the same radiative transfer algorithm (RTTOV) as in the ECMWF operational data assimilation. The forecast brightness temperature is used to produce pictures equivalent to the infra-red images available from geostationary satellites.
High resolution forecast Mean sea level pressure contours are overlaid to aid the interpretation.
Read our blog for a scientist’s perspective on different areas of ECMWF’s work. Recent posts cover the rise of machine learning in weather forecasting, the European heatwave of 2023, and heat stress.
This year will see a model upgrade and progress on machine learning – DG

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.
Forecasts, analyses, climate re-analyses, reforecasts and multi-model data are available from our archive (MARS) or via dedicated data servers or via point-to-point dissemination.
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.
