AIRWeather builds on AIR's 15 years of experience in catastrophe modeling. The foundation for the service is a state-of-the-art system for forecasting weather and climate, based on the latest technologies in numerical weather and climate prediction. Every day, AIRWeather computers take in several gigabytes of atmospheric data from around the world.
