It is used to predict natural disasters such as floods, droughts, and earthquakes. It is also used by seafarers, seafarers, and those who manage road and Air Traffic. All this is made possible by weather observation Towers, Weather balloons, Radars, Artificial satellites, High-capacity computers, and various Arithmetic models.
