Advances in numerical weather prediction represent a quiet revolution because they have resulted from a steady
accumulation of scientific knowledge and technological advances over many years that, with only a few exceptions,
have not been associated with the aura of fundamental physics breakthroughs. Nonetheless, the impact of numerical
weather prediction is among the greatest of any area of physical science. As a computational problem, global weather
prediction is comparable to the simulation of the human brain and of the evolution of the early Universe, and it is
performed every day at major operational centres across the world.
