Abstract:

Reducing the time spent to generate accurate weather forecasts will produce significant value for Naval forces Ballas, 2001. Forecasters rely on deterministic models Palmer, 2000, a problem when forecast uncertainty increases. This solution bias is less of a concern during fair weather. But as weather warnings increase, collaboration has been found to counter solution bias to improve weather forecasts and air traffic flow for commercial carriers Nadler, 2000. Naval forces collaborate over weather products, too, but often ad hoc. This research addresses the value of collaboration for weather forecasts in the fleet and social computational models to improve collaboration.
