Symposium: Dynamical meteorology and numerical weather prediction

ECMWF | Reading | 8 June 2017


This symposium was organised to mark the departure of ECMWF’s Director of Research of eight years, Erland Källén. Professor Källén will resume his position at Stockholm University when he leaves the Centre in July.

Dynamical meteorology is the study of the physics of atmospheric circulation. It aims to advance our ability to understand and predict the atmosphere based on the laws of physics and numerical methods.
