Julia Wagemann and Esperanza Cuartero discuss the cutting-edge innovations and high-quality open-source developments from this year’s Summer of Weather Code.
EUMETSAT has started to decommission the Metop-A satellite, which has brought tremendous benefits to numerical weather prediction after it was launched 15 years ago.
A powerful new feature is now available through our popular OpenCharts Catalogue, allowing users to tailor their own forecast display. The launch of ‘ChartSet’ comes just weeks after nearly 60 new products were added, bringing the total number available to well over 250.
Find out why ECMWF needs a supercomputer, what we use it for, and how developments in supercomputing can help to provide more skilful weather forecasts.
Forecast charts and data
We provide current forecasts, climate reanalyses and specific datasets. These are available via the web, point-to-point dissemination, data servers and broadcasting.

Today's #IFS47r3 upgrade includes major changes to the forecast model and improved use of observations to further increase the forecast quality. Read more: Forecast upgrade improves moist physics and use of satellite observations #newfcsystem
Forecasts, analyses, climate re-analyses, reforecasts and multi-model data are available from our archive (MARS) or via dedicated data servers or via point-to-point dissemination.
Workshops and education
Education is a key element of our work at ECMWF, enabling our partners to get the most from ECMWF's services and develop an advanced understanding of forecasting.

ECMWF workshops are open to the worldwide meteorological community, though some training is restricted to member states.
International collaboration is fundamental to the work of ECMWF, working with the EU and the meteorological community at large, including the World Meteorological Organization, space agencies, and scientists around the world.
