National Centre for Atmospheric Research Centre (NCAR) Flood and Fire Prediction Tools


NCAR in Colorado have this month released a video highlighting their use of predictive models for wildfires and floods. The models are being used successfully to provide public safety officials in the United States with detailed 12- to 24-hour predictions of these destructive disasters, enabling better operational response, saving lives and preventing damage.  The video is around 3 minutes long and provides an insight into the ways in which powerful modelling tools can positively impacrt decison-making and communities.  You can view the video here
