The ocean is the source of all rainfall and a sensitive indicator of where and when we experience rainfall on land. Our team of scientists utilize new insights in ocean-atmosphere-land interactions as well as new ocean monitoring capabilities.
We've combined these insights with artificial intelligence, leading to breakthroughs in our ability to forecast future precipitation regimes. Newly proven techniques have been incorporated into a proprietary prediction scheme for precipitation.
Our customized rainfall predictions are useful for farmers, commodity traders, managers of water and energy systems, city and emergency planners, wildfire fighters, retailers and resort operators.
Our prediction system achieved a decisive win in a year-long rainfall forecasting contest for the US West sponsored by the Bureau of Reclamation. Forecasts were provided every two weeks at 3 & 4 week lead and 5 & 6 week lead and Team "Salient" led the rainfall competition from the start. Our performance was especially dominant at the longer lead times, easily besting the NOAA model, a professional forecasting service and all other competitors (Press Release). Check the Salient performance in the precipitation categories in the contest link.
Examples of our latest predictions for the continental US at leads of 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, and 9-10 weeks are given below. We can provide accurate rainfall forecasts at long lead customized to your location. If interested please contact using the link below.
