Quote: Earle....thank you for that post. Why in the world they won't let it be seen is beyond me. But at least SOMEONE had the guts to put it into words, which is all we're asking for.
Your welcome. Hope I don't get the SC State Climatologist in trouble.
This link explains the proprietary nature of the model. http://www.techtransfer.fsu.edu/showcase/weather.html Briefly, an FSU researcher developed the model, the University patented it and then licensed it to a private company Weather Predict, Inc. The company either provides the model or model output for a fee and the University gets a royalty.
It's all about the money. Most likely the research that led to the development of the model was funded with public (i.e., taxpayers') money. Pretty common practice.
