Dynamic resilience for power distribution and customers

Chuanyi Ji; Yun Wei 2015 IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communications (SmartGridComm), 2015

Power distribution supplies energy directly to customers. However, power distribution is particularly vulnerable to severe weather, where large scale failures can interrupt electricity service to millions of customers for extended durations. Resilience metrics are needed for characterizing failures, recoveries and impacts to customers. While various resilience measures are studied previously including those from the IEEE standards, we find, using real ...


A bipartite-graph based approach for disaster susceptibility comparisons among cities

Wubai Zhou; Chao Shen; Tao Li; Shu-Ching Chen; Ning Xie; Jinpeng Wei Proceedings of the 2014 IEEE 15th International Conference on Information Reuse and Integration (IEEE IRI 2014), 2014

People are attracted to large cities because of more employment opportunities, convenient facilities, and rich cultural activities. However, large cities are also more vulnerable to natural disasters, which have caused widespread physical destructions, great loss of life and property, and immense havoc. "Which city is less susceptible to natural disasters?" is thus one of the most critical questions one faces ...


Pleiades in the context of the International Charter “space and major disasters”

Catherine Proy; Claire Tinel; Delphine Fontannaz 2013 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium - IGARSS, 2013

The International Charter "space and major disasters" (referred as the Charter) aims at providing a unified system of space data acquisition and delivery to those affected by natural or man-made disasters through Authorized Users. Each member agency has committed resources to support the provisions of the Charter and thus is helping to mitigate the effects of disasters on human life ...


Satellite observations and NCOM assessment of the Mississippi-Louisiana-Texas coast following hurricanes Gustav and Ike

Mitsuko Korobkin; Eurico D'Sa; Dong S. Ko OCEANS 2009, 2009

In 2008, two major category 2 hurricanes impacted the northern Gulf of Mexico. Hurricane Gustav made a landfall near Cocodrie, Louisiana on September 1, and Hurricane Ike at Galveston, Texas on September 13. Both surface and subsurface changes of sea states caused by these hurricanes were captured by remote sensing. Measurements of sea surface temperature (SST) from MODIS and chlorophyll ...


Generating textual storyline to improve situation awareness in disaster management

Wubai Zhou; Chao Shen; Tao Li; Shu-Ching Chen; Ning Xie Proceedings of the 2014 IEEE 15th International Conference on Information Reuse and Integration (IEEE IRI 2014), 2014

Hurricane Sandy affected the east coast of U.S. in 2012 and posed immense threats to businesses, human lives and properties. In order to minimize the consequent loss of a catastrophe like this, a critical task in disaster management is to understand situation updates about the disaster from a large number of disaster-related documents, and obtain a big picture of the ...

  • Weather and Climate Engineering

    In this chapter I present an overview of the concepts and status of the science of weather and climate engineering. I begin by discussing the concepts of seeding clouds through glaciogenic and hygroscopic seeding. I review the status of research on these concepts for increasing rainfall, decreasing hail damage, and reducing hurricane intensity. Thereafter I present an overview of the concepts for climate engineering to counter greenhouse warming. These include seeding in the stratosphere with sulfate-producing gases and aerosols, and carbonaceous aerosols. I also consider hygroscopic seeding of marine stratocumulus boundary layer clouds to enhance their albedo and cause a cooling effect. Also considered is seeding mid-level stratus clouds to enhance their albedo during the day and increasing outgoing longwave radiation during the night time. Cirrus clouds present a major obstacle to climate modification owing to their widespread global coverage and their tendency to warm the surface, thus reinforcing greenhouse warming. Speculations on the seeding of carbonaceous aerosols to clear cirrus through a semi-direct effect are presented. Most of the proposed concepts require a great deal of research to quantify their impacts and potential adverse consequences. I include a long list of the reasons as to why we should not apply climate engineering. Despite these, I anticipate that if we find ourselves in a true climate crisis, politicians will call for climate engineering measures in an attempt to alter adverse climate trends. If this should ever be the case, let us be sure that we do so with the most advanced level of knowledge of the climate system and the full consequences of our actions.

    In the present work, the growing awareness in engineering of the profession's responsibility towards the environment and the poor is considered. The following approach is taken: a brief overview of the issues of poverty particularly in the U.S. and the deterioration of the natural world with a focus on the Arctic is provided. Case studies involving New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the status of polar bears in a time of shrinking Arctic ice cover are detailed. Recent developments in engineering related to the issues of poverty and the environment are discussed. A new paradigm for engineering based on the works of Leonardo Boff and Thomas Berry, one that places an important emphasis upon a community, is explored.

    This book offers the definitive guide to the theory and practice of disaster robotics. It can serve as an introduction for researchers and technologists, a reference for emergency managers, and a textbook in field robotics. Written by a pioneering researcher in the field who has herself participated in fifteen deployments of robots in disaster response and recovery, the book covers theory and practice, the history of the field, and specific missions. After a broad overview of rescue robotics in the context of emergency informatics, the book provides a chronological summary and formal analysis of the thirty-four documented deployments of robots to disasters that include the 2001 collapse of the World Trade Center, Hurricane Katrina, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, and numerous mining accidents. It then examines disaster robotics in the typical robot modalities of ground, air, and marine, addressing such topics as robot types, missions and tasks, and selection heuristics for each modality. Finally, the book discusses types of fieldwork, providing practical advice on matters that include collecting data and collaborating with emergency professionals. The field of disaster robotics has lacked a comprehensive overview. This book by a leader in the field, offering a unique combination of the theoretical and the practical, fills the gap.
