Maximize Control Effect
In order to implement weather control, it is necessary to be able to discuss and examine quantitatively on a bottleneck of decision-making factors: the ways to maximize the effect of weather control.
To achieve this, a comparative study of the “cost of weather control” and the “damage reduction effect of weather control” is essential. The following goals were set to make a comparison in this project.
Quantifying Weather Controllability
Clarifying whether there is a separatrix that separates disaster and non-disaster regimes from historical disastrous events. Through deep learning, can smaller operations control disasters?
Quantifying Avoidable Damage by the Weather Control
Estimating economical damage and affected populations throughout Japan under controlled and non-controlled scenarios.
To achieve the goal, we set three [R & D tasks] and three “research teams” who drive each task as follows.Task 1[Quantification of weather controllability] driven by the “Mathematical Research Team,” Task 2[Large ensemble data assimilation experiment] by the “Data Assimilation Research Team,” andTask 3[Estimation of avoidable damage] by the “Economic Damage Research Team."
