The Met Office has been forecasting the weather for over 150 years. Our Marine Centre of Excellence
in Aberdeen provides solutions through critical phases of all types of marine operations - whether it's project planning using historical data, assisting with day-to-day operational support, or future proofing in relation to climate change.
As a global forecast centre, the Met Office processes, receives and reroutes vast amounts of observational data everyday. Unlike other weather agencies, we have thorough control of the whole weather forecasting process. We are a significant contributor to the global understanding of climate change. Playing a key role as world-leading advisors, we provide clear science on the facts of climate change.
The Met Office is internationally recognised for its resilience and commitment to security. This is the result of investment in high technology systems to guarantee the most accurate and detailed weather forecasts. Our supercomputer can do 125 trillion calculations per second and is among the most powerful systems in the world.
