ABSTRACT

Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Plume Forecasting: Magello   [open pdf - 796KB]

"The effects of natural and man-made disasters on urban coastal communities can be unpredictable and catastrophic. Predicting disasters is compounded by the complex nature of urban landscapes, which involve highly populated areas, various environmental conditions such as wind and ocean currents, and a concentration of critical infrastructure (e.g., port terminals, airports, train stations, bridges, tunnels) that are essential to the economy. [...] Magello is a customizable, Web-based tool that integrates oceanic and atmospheric forecasting, plume modeling, and real-time information updates that can help decision-makers and emergency responders prepare for, respond to, and recover from events. The tool overlays multiple datasets, model outputs, and information sources in a single, user-friendly interface."
