Title: National Science Foundation: Predicting Seasonal Weather
Url: http://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/autumnwinter/
Publisher: National Science Foundation (U.S.)
Description: How does a meteorologist or other such individual predict seasonal weather? That question forms the basis for this special report from the National Science Foundation. The interactive report starts by offering an explanation of how the U.S. economy is affected by weather conditions, and it reviews a bit of material on how different businesses attempt to mitigate the effect of varying weather conditions caused by warmer sea temperatures and the like. The remainder of the report is divided into five sections, including "Fall Predicts Winter" and "New Seasonal Forecast Model." The "New Seasonal Forecast Model" section talks about a more accurate model of weather prediction that has been developed in cooperation with NSF scientists. Each section contains a range of graphs and maps that help illustrate the key concepts within each topical area.
