As the science and technology used to forecast severe weather advances, so should the decision-making for severe weather incidents. Howard University and the University at Albany, in partnership with government institutions in the U.S. and Taiwan, are exploring how emergency managers make decisions using risk-based presentations of forecast models. Based on the findings, the team is building a scenario-driven Severe Weather and Risk Management training course for emergency managers. This dynamic connection between research and training will be applicable to emerging techniques like artificial intelligence and machine learning.
