I was pointed in the direction of this by a colleague, CLICKY. Perhaps the Met Office should run a similar scheme to support the purchase of new supercomputing equipment:

"Brian Golding, head of forecasting research at the Met Office, said the current resolution of their weather models is 4km, with the aim to reach 1km by 2011, though this needs better satellites and a much more powerful supercomputer which would cost several hundred million pounds. But Dr Golding said the investment would save lives and prevent the major damage caused by extreme storms: "We believe that the payback is at least 10 to 20 on the investment."
