MoES introduces new forecast model to give accurate prediction

NEW DELHI: The Ministry of Earth Science (MoES) today launched the Ensemble Prediction System (EPS) for generating more accurate and area specific forecast of extreme weather events like rains, heat wave and cold wave.

The EPS will not only enable the India Meteorological Department (IMD) to give forecast five days before, but would also add the probability of occurrence of an extreme weather event with its level of intensity.

Under the new model, the area of spatial resolution, which is 23 km grid scale, will reduce to 12 km, that will enable the meteorological department to give district-level warning, said Mritunjay Mohapatra, Additional Director General of IMD. (AGENCIES)
