COSPPac and the National Meteorological Services of Vanuatu, Samoa, Niue and Solomon Islands have documented existing traditional knowledge used for seasonal weather forecasting. The Traditional Knowledge database provides partner countries with a central register to manage and store their climate-related traditional knowledge records. In the future the collected traditional data can be integrated with conventional seasonal forecasts. The traditional knowledge collected can also be used as a tool for communicating climate messages to local communities.
For more information on the Traditional Knowledge project and to discuss access to the database, please contact the Capacity Development and Communications team by emailing COSPPac_CDC_TKProject@bom.gov.au
The purpose of this site is to give people the tools and information they need to make the case for urgent and dramatic action to address climate change.
CliDE is a climate database management system installed in National Meteorological Services in 15 countries to support day to day operations including the archival and basic analysis of historical and recent meteorological data. CliDE provides a platform for countries to rescue and secure hard copy data, which in some countries date back more than 100 years. Accurate climate records are critical for building an understanding of how the climate is changing and for verifying climate projections,monitoring and comparing droughts and other extreme events. CliDE will improve the availability of data for National Meteorological Services, other government agencies and researchers.
The mission of the Climate-Smart Planning Platform (CSPP) is to help developing-country practitioners strengthen their climate-smart planning so that it leads to better policy and investment implementation. The CSPP does this by making it easier for practitioners to locate and access the tools, data, and knowledge that they need for climate-smart planning.
The CSPP is a multi-partner initiative that has about 60 leading organizations brought together by the World Bank. These partners provide the trusted, proven, tools, data, and knowledge products that are linked in the CSPP. The platform’s team is actively expanding partnerships with other leading institutions to broaden the offering of products. Over the next 18 months, the team will continue to add tools, data, knowledge products and learning initiatives to the platform to extend its coverage on low-emissions development and expand to broader issues of green growth and climate resilient development.
Sub Seasonal and Seasonal Forecasting
The sub-seasonal to seasonal timescale provides a unique opportunity to capitalise on the expertise of the weather and climate research communities, and to bring them together to improve predictions on a timescale of particular relevance to the Global Framework for Climate Services (World Meteorological Organisation, 2012).
- Based on Climate Forecast System (CFSv2) data product, ground observations, and remote sensing
- Translate into broad use of the resulting information in decision-making
- Risk based seasonal climate forecasting technologies
- Link with endusers’ needs and interests, while considering the broader contexts and practical constraints of everyday lives
- Customizable local interpretation and report
Critical climate variables updated every ten days from the latest CFSv2 downscaled model outputs:
- Precipitation anomalies
- Temperature anomalies
- Potential evapotranspiration deficit anomalies
- Wind anomalies
- Other variables available upon request.
Updated Every Ten Days
The team at ExtendWeather ingests global data that is generated four times every day. Every ten days there are 40 global runs that we then process to generate a ten day update of our forecast maps. That means there is an ensemble of 40 model runs we draw upon and then downscale using proprietary methods to generate the high quality five kilometre resolution maps we supply.
