  • Predicting disruptive wind shear at Hong Kong Airport using Flowstar

    CERC and Hong Kong Observatory continue to work towards developing a new system for real-time prediction of wind speed and direction for Hong Kong Airport. Where airports are located adjacent to hilly terrain, flights are periodically disrupted by turbulent air flow. The meteorological conditions experienced by pilots landing at Hong Kong International Airport on the island of Chek Lap Kok are ...

  • Made in IBM Labs: New Flood Prediction Technology Simulates Rivers 100x Faster Than Real Time

    Researchers from IBM and the University of Texas at Austin have applied advanced analytics to river systems, weather and sensor data, to predict the Guadalupe River's behavior more than a hundred times the normal speed. Simulating thousands of branches at a time, this technology could help provide up to several days warning of a flood, allowing more time for disaster prevention and preparedness. ...
