Philadelphia, PA, Sept. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Behind the teams of emergency responders preparing the public for the expected catastrophic impact of Hurricane Florence is a group of American mathematicians working to save lives with what it calls the best defense – numbers.
The team – a group of researchers at several institutions across the U.S., including Clint Dawson, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin and Fellow of Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) – has developed a unique automated computer model, results of which can be found in real-time at https://cera.coastalrisk.live/, to provide the public with up-to-date information about the potential impact of Hurricane Florence.
Tomorrow at 8:45 a.m. EDT, Dawson – who has been working with the team to perfect this model for the last 20 years – will present his key learnings to fellow number crunchers at the SIAM Conference on Mathematics of Planet Earth, which takes place September 13 to 15 in Philadelphia.
Media are invited to schedule interviews with Dawson, who can speak on such topics as:
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is an international society of more than 14,500 individual, academic and corporate members from 85 countries. SIAM helps build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology to solve real-world problems through publications, conferences, and communities like chapters, sections and activity groups.
