Although numerical forecasting
provides a possible way to solve this issue, it is still an urgent problem to fairly evaluate the accuracy of a rainfall forecast.
To be published Tuesday in the journal Astronomy & Astrophyics, the study used the (http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/research/modelling-systems/unified-model) Met Office Unified Model , a numerical forecasting
model used by the United Kingdom's meteorological department for studying Earth's climate.

Statistical forecasting products and numerical forecasting
products both have some degrees of bias.
The proposed research institute is intended to focus these achievements in the fields of enhanced observation capabilities, the advent of computer-based numerical forecasting
of seasonal weather patterns and improved understanding of the physics of the climate system.
