IST research leverages big data to predict severe weather | Penn State University
Every year, severe weather endangers millions of people and causes billions of dollars in damage worldwide. But new research from Penn State’s College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) and AccuWeather has found a way to better predict some of these threats by harnessing the power of big data. By identifying bow echoes, this automatic detection would be vital to earlier recognition of severe weather, saving lives and resources.
