VIDEO: Can we forecast a weather disaster—years before it happens?

As the world comes to terms with extreme weather produced by climate change, the scientists at the new International Laboratory for High-Resolution Earth System Prediction (iHESP) are creating an advanced modeling framework to improve long-term forecasting. These models will convert detailed weather data into high-resolution, multi-scale images at the global and regional scales. The lab combines the expertise of three world-class institutions, Qingdao Pilot National Laboratory for Marine Science and Technology, Texas A&M University, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
