Predictive Models for Farmers: Contributing to Sustainable Agriculture

Deutsche Welle (Oct. 13, 2013) — Agricultural scientists at the University of Kiel are developing forecasting models for the use of pesticides. They're based on long-term studies of weather patterns, plant diseases and the condition of agricultural crops.The models allow farmers to see when the use of pesticides is necessary to combat certain fungi and pests and when they can be avoided. That's helping to protect the environment without endangering harvests.

Big Data Weather: Tracking Tornadoes Goes High Tech

FORA.tv (May 9, 2013) — Kelvin Droegemeier's research involves the dynamics and predictability of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. He helped pioneer the science of storm-scale numerical weather forecasting, leading the early development of the world's first atmospheric computer model capable of assimilating Doppler radar and other data for explicitly predicting high-impact local weather such as individual thunderstorms. High performance computing has played a key role in Droegemeier's career as an educator and scientist, and during the past decade he helped establish two supercomputing centers at the University of Oklahoma and served on NSF's Blue Ribbon Panel on Cyberinfrastructure.
