NASA Data will help forecasting Hurricanes

Climate change, sea level rising

Because of sea level rising, historical cities will be lost

Researchers of NASA are now able to simulate a heavy storm, typhoon or hurricane and help local authorities saving their people in an early stage.

The researchers used data, including temperature, pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction. With this model they can predict a disaster because of the climate change.

El Nino

Climate change disasters have nearly doubled today compare with 1950. They even expect El Ninos coming up this year. El Ninos can trigger droughts in Australia and south-east Asia while bringing floods to Peru and Chile in the east coast of South America. 

We’re trying to improve our ability to observe the atmosphere. The simulation is a cheaper way of trying to figure out how data can help us in the forecasting world.

Watch the simulation model

Water crisis

Climate Central, an independent scientific organization reported in 2014: As climate change accelerates a rise in sea level, flooding is expected to become an annual event here by 2070, affecting 100 percent of Foster City’s (California) residents.

At least 10 major cities are in danger because of the climate change.

  1. Guangzhou, China
  2. New Orleans, USA
  3. Guayaquil, Ecuador
  4. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
  5. Abidjan, Ivory Coast
  6. Zhangjiang, China
  7. Mumbai, India
  8. Khulna, Bangladesh
  9. Palembang, Indonesia
  10. Shenzen

So protection and preparation are especially important. A devastating flood in a key city can stall the entire economy. Preparation will save lives and money in the future. NASA helps.
