More and better aircraft weather observations are possible
ECMWF launches new weather and climate-related coding challenges
ESoWC 2020 ESoWC Kicks Off
Improvements in aircraft weather observation numbers, quality and metadata are possible if numerical weather prediction centres work with the WMO, EUMETNET and the aviation sector, according to experts who met at ECMWF on 12 and 13 February 2020.
ECMWF has published the challenges for its third Summer of Weather Code (ESoWC). Applicants have until 22 April 2020 to submit proposals for weather- and climate-related projects that address the challenges of handling large amounts of data and transforming it into information.
The ECMWF Summer of Weather Code (ESoWC), which has begun its 2020 edition, brings together teams to solve technical challenges in analysis and forecasting for weather, climate, and atmospheric applications.
ECMWF is working towards improving the use of meteorological observations from aircraft by adding information such as aircraft type and airline.
Faithful to its spirit of innovation, the second ECMWF Summer of Weather Code (ESoWC) programme invited proposals for up to twelve open-source projects that address weather-related software challenges.
ECMWF’s 2019 Summer of Weather Code finished on a high with a showcase day for the seven successful projects on 20 September.
Twelve challenges for ECMWF’s second Summer of Weather Code
At the start of 2018, ECMWF launched the first edition of the ECMWF Summer of Weather Code (ESoWC) to find novel and creative ways to address weather-related software challenges.
September 2018 will see the completion of ECMWF’s first Summer of Weather Code (ESoWC), a collaborative programme where we invited software developers, start-ups, weather professionals and scientists to work with us to create new and innovative weather-related code.
ECMWF has launched its second Summer of Weather Code (ESoWC) programme open to anybody keen to develop innovative weather-related software.
