"It’s not just the data that’s important," Fuqing Zhang, professor of meteorology and director of ADAPT said. "It’s how we design very sophisticated numerical mathematical algorithms to ingest that satellite data into the model. This is really our expertise and our pride. Our team is the first to be able to effectively take in this high resolution satellite data and prove it can be useful in real-case scenarios."
