Research & Development
meteoblue is committed to research and development. We are actively seeking research collaborations, so we can contribute our operational and archive forecast data and develop new services. We also develop our own services through a team of dedicated programmers.
Basel University and meteoblue closely collaborate scientifically, and there is a close collaboration with NOAA and NCEP scientists and engineers.
The basis for our services are nonhydrostatic mesoscale weather models and multi-scale weather models, which we operate at resolutions between 30 km and 3 km, depending on the complexity of the weather phenomena and the requirements of the clients. Since 2013 meteoblue computes also a global forecast covering every place on earth, 7 days ahead for every hour. meteoblue uses different forecast models and combines the information of several models into one best forecast. In addition we use complex statistical techniques in conjunction with thousands of observations to remove systematic errors from our forecasts to provide you with accurate local weather conditions.
For a scientific summary, see our Science page.
We also review the quality of our forecasts permanently. You will find a summary of the results on our verification page. An overview of what distinguishes meteoblue from other weather services can be found under "the difference".
