The Norwegian Computing Center performes research on weather forecasts focusing on extremes and statistical post-processing of predictions.
This is a collaboration with the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS), University of Mannheim and University of Bonn through the project Mesoscale Weather Extremes - Theory, Spatial Modeling and Prediction. The project is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation.
During the FIFA World Cup 2014 the Norwegian Computing Center in cooperation with Dagbladet will daily consider the chances of every team participating in the championship, based on a probability model.
All calculations will be updated during the championship and are available at vm.nr.no.
