The continuity equation models the movement of d-dimensional particles following a vector field $v_t(x)$. Many natural phenomena can be described in this setting, like the meteorological ones. In this talk, we are going to discuss a kernel based estimator for the velocity field and also a new metric inspired on Optimal Transport theory in the context of weather prediction.
