Paper Abstract

The weather information industry is now just ten years old. In the past decade, the amount of raw data available from all sources has grown by at least two orders of magnitude. In the next decade, even greater growth can be expected. New systems such as NEXRAD, ASOS, the Profiler network, and GOES NEXT will make the data assimilation/processing problem one of our greatest challenges. Will the rapidly changing communications and computing technologies be able to handle the growth? Even as personal computers become smaller and more powerful, will individual users be able to cope with the flood of new information? This paper will review these trends, and explore the options that are available. In particular, emphasis will be placed on preprocessing these datasets, to provide "value-added raw data", which can then be further processed and analyzed to meet individual users' needs.
