The development story.
I’m a climate research and data scientist and I moved into wider programming a few years ago, eventually into app and web development. My research work involved climate & weather model output, often preparing data projections for climate impact-type work – now via my own consultancy. I’m passionate about bringing research-grade climate and weather science to wider audiences, The ESD Seasonal Forecaster is a product of that passion. Other contributors to the project include Ashley Whitehair who helped develop parts of the front-end and elements of the app package. The ESD Seasonal Forecaster is a totally private development. No public, private or research funds were involved in the development at all. Just some long days and some solid strong coffee!
