Nian-Feng Tzeng of our Center for Advanced Computer Studies is leading a team which has been awarded an award from the National Science Foundation, Precise Regional Forecasting via Intelligent and Rapid Harnessing of National Scale Hydrometeorological Big Data. This $5 million NSF research award involves computing and informatics faculty members Xu Yuan, as co-principal investigator, and Li Chen and Hassan Najafi as other investigators, to work for four years with their collaborators from five universities in Louisiana, Alabama, and Kentucky, as well as the U.S. Geological Survey.
Global warming has emerged as a stark problem of national importance, as it results in more frequent extreme weather and climate events that cause rising economic loss and adverse societal impacts on numerous sectors, such as agriculture, transportation, water resource management, urban planning, among others. For better observations and numerical models on weather and climate parameters to improve forecasting accuracy, this project addresses precise regional forecasting via intelligent and rapid harness on national scale hydrometeorological Big Data.
