Combating the Environmental Hazards at the Local Levels
“I declare this world is so beautiful that I can hardly believe it exists.” The beauty of nature can have a profound effect upon our senses, those gateways from the outer world to the inner, whether it results in disbelief in its very existence as Emerson notes, or feelings such as awe, wonder, or amazement.
Our project aims to develop the "Thunderstorm and Rainfall Risk Prediction System" delivering realiable scientific information to the community for better combating the impacts of climate change at the local levels.
Key facts from the statistical records were analyzed the impacts of thunderstorm over Thailand during the past 30 years. The figure reveals that the provinces in the northern and northeastern Thailand often faced with this natural hazard including the frequency of occurrence, frequency of hail, housing damange, number of mortality, electricity pole damage, and animal loss, respectively.
Development of Thunderstorm and Rainfall Risk Prediction System Considering the Effects of Aerosol-Cloud Interactions in Thailand Using WRF-Chem Simulations
The projects will demonstrate the prediction of extrame weather by performing the modeling applications with the investigations of community needs to develope the integrated risk preparenessed warning system in the study areas of 5 provinces of Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Khon Khaen, Nakhon Ratchasima, and Bangkok
To cope with the haze pollution and extream weather conditions resulting from the climate change, scientific-based technology is the key elemental tool for better understanding the situtation and prediction the future possible hazards that might cause various critical adverse impacts to the community.
