This presentation is a compilation of material from leaders in the modeling, HPC & remote sensing communities. May you live in interesting times. Confucius Well, we live in interesting times. There is a modestly paced paradigm shift underway in our Modeling Community, influenced by unrelated external factors coming together at the same time. This isn
On October 2, 2015, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) renewed two five-year partnerships with Penn State, one with the Department of Geography in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences and another with the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL). The partnerships, or cooperative research and development agreements (CRADAs), focus on improving both education for geospatial analysts
A Marion man is working with a company that strives to predict far in advance up-to-the-minute forecasts of just the kind of weather the East Coast has been experiencing over the past month. Data collected and instantly analyzed from satellites circling the earth can provide environmental forecasts for communities, businesses, governments and travel industries all
The grand environmental challenge of this century is water – whether too much, or too little. And, the ability to predict when and where it falls and where it goes is crucial to most decision-making. Flooding and droughts kill more people than any other weather disaster and result in billions of dollars in damage every
