Current Trends in Forecasting Technologies for Environmental Monitoring and Climate Change

Climate change is one of the most significant global challenges nowadays. The increasing human influence on the ecosystem by activities like burning fossil fuels, cutting down forests, farming livestock etc., is making a shift in earth’s climate, temperature and global footprint. Also, the increasing level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is leading to global warming. These anthropogenic actions have compromised water and air quality. Also, factors like bad weather, exacerbating floods, torrent rainfall, strong wind, and deforestation have caused biodiversity loss and destroyed the lives and properties of people. Hence, forecasting and monitoring the environment and climate is essential to make people take precautionary measures against these natural calamities. Forecasting attempts to predict the future characteristics and background to make a firm deal with environmental disasters. It can also significantly influence decision making for increasing productivity, construction planning and environmental risk management. Hence for Critical decision-making demands, advanced environment forecasting and information support system.

Forecasting system with innovative technologies involving supercomputers, IoT sensors, smart mobile devices, satellite and remote sensing technology, digital database, wireless communication, next-generation workstations, has increased the opportunity to improve the environment and climate. The monitoring system integrates satellite observations, ground-based data and forecast models to forecast climate changes and assess the quality of the environment for controlling impacts and risks. A forecasting model like numerical weather prediction is a computer program that gives exact meteorological information on the future with the help of a predefined set of climatic data collected. It is a set of simplified equations that calculate the same changes in atmospheric conditions using computer-based modelling to predicting weather and climatic changes. Again, Supercomputers using AI models are fed with weather information from satellites, weather stations, and other sources to perform calculations. It considers broad-scale factors such as solar radiation, air pressure differences, earth’s rotation and water cycle to generate more accurate forecasts on climate. Radar technology allows meteorologists to view and display severe weather conditions. It also inputs computer models and satellite technology, allowing forecasters to view and display extreme climate conditions. It has also increased accuracy in weather watch and warnings systems. Moreover, IoT System with advanced technologies and intelligent sensors provides a solid platform for predictive analysis on climate that has maximized forecasting accuracy and reliability. All these advanced techniques in the environment are helping meteorologists forecast and monitor complex climatic variations and challenges, creating an efficient interplay with data analysis, computers and rapid communication systems.

Climate forecasting aims to provide organizations and people with information regarding the environment change. It can also be used as a tool assessing environmental conditions to support policy development and its implementation for future. However, Intelligent monitoring systems have been criticized as costing too much while delivering too little. It is still faced with significant uncertainties that lead to erroneous predictions. At the same time hampered by persisting holes in the basic observing system. Still, environmental monitoring plays a vital role by instilling positive development in areas like protecting property and life, supporting economic prosperity, increasing quality of life. This special issue seeks research articles on advanced environmental forecasting methods and techniques that can be implemented at global, regional and national level for protecting environment and forecast accurate climate change.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Future oriented Climate forecasting methods, models and applications.
  • Environmental forecasting models to improve economic values.
  • Data digitalization and adaptation Policy for environment monitoring and forecasting.
  • Impacts of digital transformation in environmental forecasting.
