|IITM developed world’s highest resolution Global Ensemble Forecast System (GEFS)|
IITM developed world’s highest resolution Global Ensemble Forecast System (GEFS) for short range prediction at 12 km using 21 members of the model. The GEFS prediction system provided probabilistic rainfall for next 10 days. The very high (~12 km) resolution Ensemble Prediction System (EPS) with 21 ensemble members for short range forecast system based on GEFS (T1534) has been put in place by IITM and has been handed over to IMD for operational implementation since 1 June 2018. For the benefit of IMD forecasters, various new model diagnostics and products have been developed and added based on GEFS T1534 forecast Presently the GEFS (12km) forecast is utilised to develop the block level forecast of rainfall probability for IMD’s agrimet application.
