CIRA Machine Learning (ML) home
Explore the topics below to learn more about CIRA’s ML activities.
- CIRA’s ML philosophy, key expertise, core activities and educational resources.
- The emergence of fully AI-based global weather prediction models raises many questions. We run and visualize some of these locally, and are developing a research agenda for their evaluation.
- ML related to inferring cloud properties
- Machine Learning for Tropical Cyclones
- Machine Learning related to VIIRS Day Night Band
