International Weather is an agency of the National Weather Service that provides information on weather in the major world areas. It gives advance warning on severe weather reports to people all over the world. The service also forecasts of severe weather conditions in near and far countries and sends timely text message and MMS alerts to mobile phones. The service is offered for free by the GIS-basedweather websites. The other services are also provided by the National Weather Service for meteorological research.
Global Positioning System (GPS) is a network of satellites that provides global position information. By monitoring the Earth’s rotation along with the Global Positioning System, it is possible to determine the weather at any given location at a specific time. It does this by using mathematical equations. This information is then processed by the Global Weather Office and delivered to the meteorologists for use in their forecasts. It takes into account many factors like lapse rate, cloudiness, sunrise/ sunset times, etc., and calculates the probability of the event being severe or not.
Different models of the Global Positioning System predict different types of weather based on their output from the mathematical equations. The European model and the American model are the two most widely used. The problem with these global models is that they are unable to provide real time data. They cannot determine the exact location of a storm cell or lightning strike because of poor data quality. They also have severe limitations in their ability to predict rain forests or the weather in regions closer to the equator or the Arctic.
The GIS-based weather forecast offers more precise results than the mathematical equations and the location of a storm cell or lightning strike. It is able to predict the intensity of rain showers, snow fall and ice melting, which affect the local weather. For instance, a snowfall at a place with cold air temperature and humidity would have a relatively smaller effect on the cloud cover than a snowfall at a place with hot air temperature and low humidity. The Global Positioning System can also provide precipitation forecasts for the Himalayan region, where the monsoon season is a combination of rain and sunshine.
Another important function is the precipitation forecast. Precipitation is normally determined by subtracting the predicted precipitation from the usual rainfall. It is used for flood prediction and disaster forecasting as well as agricultural forecast. A recent improvement in the Global Positioning System has made it possible to create rain maps that include both the precipitation and high-altitude cloudiness, which can help meteorologists in their forecasts.
Global Positioning System also helps in satellite navigation and in military communications. They are used in the Earth observation mission by the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, and the U.S. Air Force Space situational networking system. International Weather Services is also an important part of weather forecasts. They are essential to safety concerns, which is why they play an important role in rescue missions, weather updates and warnings to the general public.
