2015-06-18 Germany: Simulation Based Adaption and Response System to Extreme Weather and Climate Events


Simulation Based Adaption and Response System to Extreme Weather and Climate Events

Description of the project offered: 
local – data driven – simulation based - precautionary – efficient

Making informed decisions is key when it comes to successfully manage a crisis. Therefore it is inevitable to know the area, know the specific risks, know the needs. 

The aim of the project is to develop a simulation based catastrophe management system. By focusing on a local implementation, this system will increase the response capacity to extreme weather and climate events and the security of people and assets.

The intended solution:
- focuses on practical improvements on a local level
- should enhance the awareness and preparedness
- will shorten reaction time and increase efficiency by providing situation based information in real time and supporting the coordination activities
- consists of a detailed data-based low-scale computational modelling (3-D mapping) of the area
- integrates (among others) topographic, vegetational, land use and pedological data 
- can simulate extreme weather events and identify high-risk areas on a small scale with high precision
- is designed to cover a wide range of extreme weather and climate events (e.g. heavy rain, mud slides, wild fire, storms).
- is able to indicate the most efficient precaution measures for the area of application
- can be used for the purpose of scenario based training to increase preparedness for specific dangers
- integrates local real-time weather data and forcasting 
- serves as a regional warning system with high accuracy
- supports response forces in action by giving advice, coordinating and suggesting actions according to context and event.
