DEVELOPMENT OF AN INNOVATIVE APPLICATIVE MODEL FOR EFFECTIVE HIGH RESOLUTION METEOROLOGICAL FORECASTING
THAT THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE MODEL GRID SPACING, TOGETHER WITH THE USE OF MORE ACCURATE GEOGRAPHIC DATA AND THE LAND USE DATA, MORE SUITABLE FOR THE DESCRIPTION OF THE TERRITORY, ARE THE KEY ELEMENTS FOR THE PREDICTION ACCURACY.
The aim of the innovation is to improve the quality of forecasting and monitoring of environmental phenomena, such as extreme weather events, which often cause considerable damage as well as loss of life.
Avoid natural disasters thanks to a technology capable of making a prediction.
Stage of development
the model will be initialized by means of data assimilation techniques in four dimensions (4D-VAR), using meteorological data coming from the Sicilian observational network, as well as data from meteorological radars present on the Italian national territory.
Challenge and needs
Avoid natural disasters.
The technology is not yet protected by a patent.
Potential markets and targets
