Salient Predictions produces the world’s most accurate long-range weather forecasts (3 weeks to 9+ months out) for temperature and precipitation. The team uses ocean data and ML to significantly improve forecast accuracy, and they are building vertical-specific solutions for agriculture, energy, insurance, finance, retail and beyond. Salient is vastly expanding not only industry’s ability to predict, respond to, and leverage the weather, but also humanity’s understanding of and relationship to the global water cycle and how it’s shifting with a rapidly changing climate. Salient Predictions is working to improve the dynamics between industry and climate, driving climate resiliency and carbon emissions mitigation across the world.
