Newsletter 140 cover

The Summer 2014 issue of the ECMWF Newsletter is now available. As well as news about ECMWF staff and events, it features articles about new developments and the use that can be made of ECMWF products.

Weather forecasts could extend the advance warning of malaria outbreaks provided by climate monitoring and supply warnings on a regional or even continental scale. The Newsletter reports on ECMWF's involvement in a project to integrate data from climate modelling and disease forecasting systems to predict the likelihood of a malaria epidemic. 

Contents include:

  • Seasonal forecasts to plan malaria interventions
  • Automatic checking of observations
  • All-sky assimilation of microwave humidity sounders
  • Predictability of cold drops based on ECMWF’s forecasts over Europe
  • SAPP: a new scalable acquisition and pre-processing system
  • New user interface for Metview

The ECMWF Newsletter is published quarterly.
