Conceptual Models for Southern Hemisphere

Conceptual Models for Southern Hemisphere (CM4SH) was a joint project between southern hemispheric Centres of Excellence: Argentina, Australia, Brazil and South Africa and  an expert group from the Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics, Indonesia (BMKG). The project was co-funded by WMO and EUMETSAT. The first phase of the project was completed in March 2014, and the second phase in June 2016.

The purpose of the project was to improve warnings and awareness of weather risks through the use of conceptual models.

The objectives of the project were to produce and publish resources about Conceptual Models for the CoE areas of interest for the operational forecasters, trainers and training institutions.

The main task within the project for each CoE was to to prepare Conceptual Model descriptions for several weather systems within their regions.
