Episode 1 - Introductions and an interview about future forecasting
In our first podcast we talk about the Society and provide a bit of detail about our numerous activities, including our upcoming meetings.
Plus, in the aftermath of our "Message Impossible - Communicating Weather Information in the Digital Age" National meeting, we talk to Dr Rebecca Morss of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (US) and Andrew Charlton-Perez of Reading University about the challenges the scientific community faces when delivering forecasts.
The latest weather satellite has been successfully launched into orbit by NASA on Saturday. It features six new sensors, much greater processing power and will capture more hi-res imagery, improving weather observation capabilities, leading to more accurate forecasts and warnings.
