The weather value chain continues to be rapidly transformed by new commercial data sources; advances in cloud computing and machine learning; the emergence of private-sector weather modeling; and an insatiable desire for more granular forecasts at longer lead times. This panel will showcase key players in the weather value chain of the future, and discuss the opportunities and challenges presented by the convergence of accelerating technology innovation, alternative business models, and the release of the Decadal Survey and NOAA’s future architecture study.
