Severe Weather Study Shows Potential of GNSS-RO

In a novel application of space-based atmospheric measurements, Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), leading advisors on weather and climate risk to large enterprises, in collaboration with GeoOptics, has investigated the use of radio occultation measurements to improve severe weather forecasting. Pairing state-of-the-art, high-fidelity weather models with the rapidly evolving technology of miniaturized satellites provides a unique look into the future of weather prediction. The simulation study shows that large constellations of tiny weather satellites, like GeoOptics’ CICERO constellation, can provide significant improvements in severe weather forecasting.
