Met Office launches Stormtracker service

StormTracker provides an interactive, global picture of cyclones to help quantify risk and aid decision-making, and has been released in a free basic version aimed at the public, plus more advanced versions suitable for professional risk managers.

Matt Huddleston, Met Office principal climate change consultant, said: "Risk managers in the financial and energy markets will find the access to a wider range of global forecasts invaluable for reducing exposure to damaging storms like Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Andrew in 1992."
