Seasonal Forecasting Engine
The aim of SFE is to develop a state-of-the-art operational seasonal climate prediction system for Northern Europe and the Arctic. Our motivation is that many companies and public stakeholders face climate-related risks that must be managed to stay competitive and to protect life, property and the environment. Tailored seasonal predictions can be helpful tools for risk mitigation, and they can guide more efficient use of resources in many sectors of society, including agriculture, energy, water, transportation, and insurance. To our users, the SFE will be accessible through a flexible interface which can be queried to obtain predictions of relevant climate indices and variables. Under the hood, our ‘engine’ consists of statistical algorithms that merge vast amounts of data into unified forecasts.
