Lexington, Massachusetts – Using sophisticated numerical models, the scientists of Atmospheric and Environmental Research, Inc. (AER Inc.), a leader in cutting-edge climate forecasting, have found a method to determine the intensity and the path of a hurricane with a certainty factor - that is predicting when, where and how hard a hurricane will hit and also telling you the likelihood of the hurricane to take another path. The ingredients to AER's Hurricane ForecastPro are math, physics, super-computers, natural laws, and premier science. To determine the hurricane's path AER scientists feed storm track data from the National Hurricane Center into AER research-grade probabilistic models and this information is supplied to a model based on physical storm principles. The output is accurate hurricane alerts before the storm hits.
Mark Leidner, lead scientist for Hurricane ForecastPro says, "Because hurricanes are notoriously unpredictable, forecasting hurricanes has always been fraught with uncertainty. Characterizing an impending storm finally gives organizations and individuals a reliable way to plan and protect with accurate and quantitative information. Our hope is that the technology of Hurricane ForecastPro will help save lives and protect property by providing valuable information to stay out of harms' way."
