Each episode of the WeatherPod invites leading experts and discusses how public, private and academic sectors can work together providing value for business and society. Hosts Alan Thorpe and David Rogers reviewed 17 episodes of the WeatherPod to date, and examined the key issues addressed so far.
In the first in a series of blogs on the role of hydromet services in decarbonizing economies, we highlight the economic opportunities and societal benefits of strengthening the resilience of our basic infrastructure to the weather and climate. There is an immediate need, which goes hand in hand with the infrastructure investments in decarbonizing societies, to improve meteorological and hydrological information on all timescales and to blend this information with many other data sources in an integrated system that can greatly enhance the day-to-day functioning of society. The basic message is – decarbonizing society depends on strengthening hydromet services.
