Big data analytics and machine learning provide intelligence and play a pivotal role in driving Internet of Things (IoT) devices. This chapter introduces the fundamentals and anatomy of IoT and data analytics technologies. Within each group, different sectors and potential applications are suggested. It discusses creativity, invention, and innovation as well as disruptive innovation (DI) and considers_How to Solve It_to fuel new products and new processes in the IoT ecosystem. The IoT technology concentrates on two broad types of standards, namely, technology standards and regulatory standards related to security and privacy of data. The IoT is no longer a buzzword; it is a fact of life. The cycle starting from creativity to invention to innovation is a compulsory backbone to flourish products applying IoT technology. A cloud model consists of five essential characteristics: on‐demand self‐service, broad network access, resource pooling, rapid elasticity, and measured service.
A nation whose coastal areas, offshore as well as onshore, are becoming more intensively developed and utilized must recognize the potential property damage as well as loss of life and cost of injuries that may result from increasing vulnerability to natural hazards such as hurricanes, accompanying tornadoes, and other storms. These will have an impact on communications as well as boat and vessel accidents, also on near-shore and offshore installations. The conclusions of this paper underscore the importance of safe and effective use of the marine environment and the need for increasing attention and analysis. Perhaps nowhere is our need for environmental data and analysis so great as it is in dealing with environmental hazards. As our growth continues are we still at the mercy of our physical environment?
Wind-wave interaction at extreme wind speed is of special interest now in connection with the problem of explanation of the sea surface drag saturation at the wind speed exceeding 30 m/s. The main objective of this work is investigation of factors determining momentum exchange under high wind speeds (up to U<sub>10</sub>>;40 m s<sup>-1</sup>) basing on the laboratory experiment in a well-controlled environment. Air flow velocity measurements were complemented by measurements of the wind wave spectra. The tendency to saturation of the surface drag was observed for wind speeds exceeding 25 m s<sup>-1</sup>, accompanied by the saturation of wind wave slopes. The effect of surface drag saturation can be explained quantitatively within the quasi- linear model of the air boundary layer above the waved water surface, when the contribution of the short-wave part of the wind wave spectrum to aerodynamic resistance of the water surface is taken into account.
NOAA is evaluating the potential of over-the-horizon (OTH) defense radars for providing surface-wind data over very large data-sparse ocean areas. Tests with the U.S. Air Force OTH-B east- and west-coast radar systems have mapped surface wind direction over areas as large as 20 million square kilometers, revealing synoptic weather patterns. The east-coast radar in Maine has also focused on smaller areas to track hurricanes Claudette and Andrew more than 2000 km away. With the end of the Cold War, routine ocean-monitoring tasks could be added to military OTH radars at modest incremental cost.<<ETX>>
The Hurricane Imaging Radiometer (HIRAD) is an experimental C-band airborne microwave radiometer developed by NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) to provide hurricane's surface wind speed and rain rate. It is intended to expand the current NOAA and US Air Force hurricane surveillance capability by extending the operational Stepped Frequency Microwave Radiometer (SFMR) measurements to a wide-swath hurricane image. This paper discusses the evaluation of HIRAD radiometric brightness temperature images on a relatively uniform ocean scene during the unmanned Global Hawk scientific flight over the Pacific Ocean in 2012. The objective of this analysis is to assess the accuracy and stability of HIRAD Tb measurement. This objective is accomplished by comparing HIRAD measured and theoretical Tbs.
A mesoscale modeling investigation of tropical cyclone/hurricane forecast over the Gulf of Mexico has been established under the NASA/HBCU Renewable Energy and Technology Project to adopt the numerical weather prediction model for possible use in regions where solar equipment will be used. Accurate and reliable forecasting is crucial in regions that have limited resources where renewable solar energy can be utilized. Devices such as solar cookers and solar Sterling engines can be effectively operated under adequate sunlight in converting solar energy to cook food. The study also involves in understanding the structure and dynamics of land falling tropical cyclones over the Gulf coast under the project - Diversity in Atmospheric Science through Research Application and Partnership (IDAS-RAP) with NWS/NOAA. Cloud cover, temperature, radiation, and precipitation are major factors that help the operation of such devices; therefore weather conditions must be predicted fairly well in advance so that appropriate measures may be taken to protect solar assets. A case study on Hurricane Lili 2002 (September 21-October 4) has been modeled to show changes in weather conditions that could affect solar- energy utilization. The PSU/NCAR Mesoscale Model (MM5) is used to simulate the storm's formation and development, and predict its track and intensity change. The simulation was for a period of two days during October 3 and 4 when hurricane Lili made landfall over the coastal areas of Louisiana and Mississippi. Model configuration includes two nested domains of 85×85 and 91×91 dimensions respectively. Inner domain is two-way. The outer domain of grid size 27 km is positioned over the Gulf of Mexico region, and the nested domain of grid size 9 km closer to the coast of LA-MS. Objective analysis is done using NCEP ADP Global Surface Observations. Model predicted compared with aircraft observations taken by the National Hurricane Center and noted reasonably good agreement. The present study will aid in determining weather conditions well in advance so that early warnings can be issued and damage to life and property can be averted.
In early September 2017, when the rains from Hurricane Harvey finally subsided in Houston, Texas, Seth Pedersen loaded up his pickup truck with sample collection kits, waders, rubber boots, buckets, and a small aluminum fishing boat. On that particular day, Pedersen, a second-year graduate student in environmental engineering at Rice University, was-along with a fellow graduate student-on a mission to test the water in homes flooded by Hurricane Harvey. He was looking specifically for E. coli bacteria, chemicals, heavy metals, and other pathogens (Figure 1).
Events such as hurricanes, severe icing events, and tornados clearly show that a significant number of customer outages are related to the interruption of power on the service end of the delivery system (i.e., at the customer's place of business or residence). Experience shows that these extreme events typically cause outages that are the result of impacting trees and branches on the service side support wires. An electromechanical protective overload device has been developed that can be installed in line with the service drop support wire to limit the maximum tension that can be exerted on the service installation on the customers place of business or residence. This device acts as a mechanical fuse that allows the connection to be severed (i.e., both mechanically and electrically) on the transformer side before tensions increase far enough to cause any damage on the dwelling.
A DETAILED STUDY of how sea surface temperatures influence hurricane birth, growth, and decline will be made by New York University (NYU) meteorologists for the next 12 months under a $17,500 grant from the United States Weather Bureau.
SKYLAB II S193 Scatterometer data for the passes of June 5, 1973, over the Gulf of Mexico and June 6, 1973, over Pacific Hurricane AVA were analyzed. These two passes were chosen since it was possible to correlate the scattering data with simultaneous measurements of the local ocean wind conditions. The S193 scatterometer measured the radar cross section of the ocean at 13.9 GHz (Ku-band) as a function of incidence angle. The S193 data of June 5, 1973, when a practically uniform wind field was present, show reasonable agreement with the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) empirical and theoretical models. The data of June 6, 1973, are more complex, due to rapid variations in wind speeds and directions around Hurricane AVA. The NRL empirical model was interpolated to account for variation in wind heading relative to the S193 antenna pointing direction; a reasonable comparison could then be made with the corresponding S193 data of June 6, 1973.
