The Volcanic Ash Coordination Tool (VACT), an interactive meteorological workstation, is being developed by the Forecast Systems Laboratory (FSL) and tested in operational settings in Alaska. VACT will enable remotely located users to simultaneously view and manipulate distributed databases in a common framework for collaborative decision making...
Accurate and timely flood forecasts are critical for making emergency-response decisions regarding public safety, infrastructure operations, and resource allocation. One of the main challenges for coastal flood forecasting systems is a lack of reliable forecast data of large-scale oceanic and watershed processes and the combined effects of multi...Institution National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - NOAA
The Bay Area Flood Protection Association has just recently begun funding the Physical Sciences Division and Global Systems Division (GSD) of NOAA’s Earth System Research Lab (NOAA-ESRL), as well as the NOAA Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA), to design and build a specialized nowcast / forecast system for the 9 Californ...Institution National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - NOAA
Compound flooding, resulting from a combination of riverine and coastal processes, is a complex but important hazard to resolve along urbanized shorelines in the vicinity of river mouths. However, inland flooding models rarely consider oceanographic conditions, and vice versa for coastal flood models. Here, we describe the development of an oper...Institutions Earth System Research Laboratory - ESRL National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - NOAA
