Prof. Dr. Daniela Domeisen, Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science, Department of Environmental Systems Science, ETH Zürich, Zürich (Switzerland): "The challenges of weekly to monthly weather predictions over Europe"



11:00 Uhr, Hörsaal, Düsternbrooker Weg 20


The prediction of our weather is notoriously difficult beyond timescales of one to two weeks. Longer-term predictions are however able to indicate tendencies in temperature or precipitation for weeks to months ahead. In particular, there is significant interest in forecasting extreme events that can lead to significant damage to ecosystems and infrastructure, as well as human health. This presentation explores our current ability to make longer-term predictions as well as the challenges ahead, in particular with respect to remote effects on our weather that may be possible to utilize for improving long-term weather forecasts.
