When you can better understand and anticipate the impact of weather and climate, you have the power to strengthen your business in many ways – whether it's minimizing property damage from a storm; gauging the effect of drought on commodity investment strategies; calculating how clouds impact solar energy production; or evaluating insurance claims in the aftermath of severe weather.
Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER) gives you that power, enabling you to make better-informed decisions that benefit both your customers and your bottom line.
AER is unlike traditional weather companies.
We don't regard weather prediction or weather data as our final product. Instead, we view the weather as a means to enable you to transform weather risk into strategic and market differentiating opportunity. By partnering with you, we help you advance your most important business goals by integrating state-of-the-art atmospheric science and remote sensing (satellite, radar, airborne sensor) technologies into your business and product development processes.
AER is uniquely equipped to support the strategic weather risk management needs of business because we offer:
For business clients, there's no greater assurance of success than knowing that AER is the same organization government agencies rely on to improve weather prediction and weather science. All our corporate clients benefit from our more than 30-year record of strategic collaborations with government organizations, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), NASA and the Departments of Defense and Energy. AER is an active team member on the US government's next-generation weather satellite (GOES-R), and a partner to international meteorological agencies in Europe and the Pacific Rim.
These relationships have enriched our data resources, as well. In fact, AER is the only service provider of its kind with access to the most comprehensive mineable repositories of current, historical and predicted global environmental data. These data include 30+ years of meteorological, atmospheric, oceanographic and space environmental information, as well as associated data from research and operational environmental satellites currently orbiting the Earth.
At AER, we follow a three-step process to enable our clients to systematically and proactively manage weather- and climate-related risk:
