Congratulations to Frank Vernon, Director of IGPP's Broadband Seismic Data Collection Center, who has been awarded CENIC's (California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology) "Innovation in Networking Award for Experimental Applications." The application was the implementation of real-time, data-driven simulation, prediction and visualization of wildfires. He has deployed high-speed wiresless networks that allow data collection from hundreds of stations, and developing fire cameras and multi-hazard (e.g.
Atmospheric Rivers, are a weather phenomena that plays a key role in the variability of the water supply and the incidence of extreme precipitation events along the West Coast of the United States. AR2018 is a field campaign that will make offshore measurements of atmospheric rivers before they impact the west coast of the USA as part of the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes (CW3E) effort to improve forecasts for water resource management and flash flood prediction.
