Better Weather Forecasts Coming to the Developing World

Old and new forecasts side-by-side for an August 2018 monsoon1 in India.

新旧预报并驾齐驱,预测了2018年8月印度季风。 

“A region such as this compared to over here. Look at the type of detail that you get.”

“像这样的地区与这里相比,看看你能得到的细节。” 

Kevin Petty is science and forecasting chief at the weather company.

凯文`佩蒂是气象公司的科学和预报主管。 

He says the new system generates much more precise forecasts than the old one.

他说新系统产生的预测比旧系统精确得多。 

“And that’s what’s so significant about this achievement.

“这就是这个成就的重要意义。 

We’re now able to provide very targeted information to end-users about what impacts they’re going to expect as it relates to the weather.”

我们现在能够向最终用户提供非常有针对性的信息,告诉他们与天气相关的预期影响。” 

As weather extremes get more destructive with climate change, better forecasts could be a matter of life and death.

随着气候变化,极端天气的破坏性越来越大,更准确的预报可能事关生死。 

And Petty says they could help businesses from Airlines’ planning routes to farmers’ tending fields.

佩蒂说,更准确的预报可以帮助诸如从航空公司规划航线到农民照料田地等工作。 

“If I’m going to go fertilize2 my crops, if I know that I’m going to have heavy precipitation coming, and that fertilizer is just gonna run off and not do its job.

“如果我要去给我的庄稼施肥,如果我知道会有大量的降水,而且肥料会流失而不起作用。 

That doesn’t help me. But now, with this type of information I can better select my practices.”

那对我没有帮助。但现在,有了这类信息,我可以更好地选择我的做法。” 

These detailed3 forecasts have not been available before outside major industrialized countries.

这些详细的预测之前局限在主要工业化国家。 

That’s largely because they take a lot of computer power to produce.

这主要是因为其需要大量的计算机电源来运行。 

“We are just now getting to the point of having the level of computational power to do this.

“我们现在才刚刚达到计算能力水平来做这件事情。 

And by leveraging4 that computational power, we’re now able to run a global model at high resolutions that,

通过利用这种计算能力,我们现在能够以高分辨率运行全球模型, 

that covers populations of the world where those populations need weather data the most.”

覆盖那些最需要气象数据的世界人口。” 

The system will power forecasts on the Weather Channel app and weather. com.

该系统将为天气频道应用程序和天气预报网站提供动力。
