Peter Bauer discusses recent ground-breaking work with a high-resolution version of the IFS running on some of the most powerful computers in the world, to see what speed-up can be achieved. He also takes a look back at early experiments from the 1980s.

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.
EUMETSAT Research Fellows hosted at ECMWF help to improve the use of satellite data in weather forecasting. @eumetsat @NWP_SAF @WMO https://www.ecmwf.int/en/about/media-centre/news/2019/eumetsat-fellows-help-improve-ecmwf-weather-forecasts
Advancing weather science
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.
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.
