    Project Description

    This research aims to improve meteorological services through the application of knowledge management to the forecast process. A comprehensive framework of knowledge management will be developed that includes models of forecasters explicit, tacit and experiential knowledge. Such models allow forecasters to share knowledge and learn from their collective experience. The development of computer based support systems, based on this framework, will enhance the Bureau of Meteorology s ability to compete internationally in the provision of complete forecasting systems. Generalising the outcomes will provide industry with the means to adopt knowledge management practices and enhance its ability to participate in the knowledge economy.
