European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts

About the Organisation

The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts is an international organisation supported by 34 European and Mediterranean States. ECMWF's longstanding principal objectives are the development of numerical methods for medium-range weather forecasting, the operational delivery of medium-to-seasonal range weather forecasts for distribution to the meteorological services of the Member States, to lead scientific and technical research directed to the improvement of these forecasts, and the collection and storage of appropriate meteorological data.
ECMWF has extensive competence in operating complex global forecasting suites on high-performance computers and in transitioning top-level science from research to operations exploiting innovative approaches in computing science to fulfil the tight runtime and delivery constraints required by Member States.
