About the book

Weather warnings released all over the world as well as the regional level even on the country level, which is important forecasts. They use it to protect life and property. The weather forecasting is playing an important role in planning and management to save the infrastructure and people's lives from disasters. Weather forecasting determines the atmosphere process in the future. It is related to understanding the atmospheric process through observed and remote sensing meteorology data. We can say the collecting as much as data as possible about the current state of the atmosphere particularly the temperature, humidity, and wind. There is a vast variety of end uses to weather forecasts. There is a number of methods i.e. statistically, numerical, artificial neural network, and different weather forecasting models. Climate change increases the demand for weather forecasting. Due to weather forecasts, decision-makers can take different protective measures in every field of life especially agriculture regarding food hunger. The extreme event of weather impact on agriculture as well as infrastructure.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
