In this seminar, I will provide the current development of the global NWP system on Numerical Prediction Division of Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA-NPD).

JMA-NPD is operating the Global Spectrum Model (GSM) for the short- and medium-range forecast, a global ensemble prediction system for medium-range forecast (using initial perturbations with SV method and LETKF) and a global data assimilation system (4D-Var).

I will introduce the overview of these system, the development from 2017 and JMA future plans.
