It's a fact: the volatility of weather has never been greater. According to a 2008 report by the U.S. Climate Change Science Program, extreme weather conditions are increasing in both frequency and severity – and that trend is expected to continue. Droughts. Giant hail. Sudden tornadoes in unexpected places. Heat waves. Flash floods. The impact of a single severe weather event can be both devastating and lasting.
At Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), we understand that in situations of extreme weather, every extra minute of warning is a minute that can be spent protecting lives, infrastructure, property, agriculture, and business. Every kernel of insight can be a springboard to more effective mitigation, faster response – or even a more successful investment strategy. In less dramatic situations, a deeper understanding of weather-related factors can be critical to proper strategic and operational planning.
Managing risk effectively takes more than accurate forecasts. Both government organizations and businesses need a partner they can trust to deliver meaningful data. Not just generic analyses, but comprehensive, insightful analyses tailored to each client's unique concerns.
For more than 30 years, AER has been that partner to governments and corporations in need of weather- and climate-related research, consulting and solutions. By sharing the benefits of our science, we give our clients the power to be more successful in serving the interests of all their stakeholders.
