How Technology Harnesses Science and Data to Give Answers to Decision-Makers [D22]

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Global risk of rainfall-related disasters? How El Niño impacts rainfall globally? Risk of malaria in Africa? Risk of famine in the Philippines? Rice production risk in Bicol, the Philippines? Risk of fire in Indonesia? How will seasonal rainfall shift in the upcoming seasons globally? What matters: global warming or year-to-year variability?   So many questions, one answer: the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) Data Library (DL) and Maprooms. Get the answers to those questions (and more) for yourself by surfing the IRI Maprooms. Tailor your analysis and generate maps and graphs online, on the fly. An IRI DL expert will facilitate your exploration by telling you how technology enables the harnessing of science and data to deliver information to decision-makers. And, why not, start your own program online to make your own analysis of one or more of the hundreds datasets available in the DL.
