Weather Hazards

The prediction of extreme winds, hail, heavy snow, frost, freezing rain, and fogging is important when evaluating potential impacts resulting from vapour emissions from power plants and other industrial facilities that release significant amounts of water vapour into the air. It is equally important to evaluate the significance of such weather hazards on buildings, hydro transmission lines, roadways, airports, as well as impacts to the agricultural sector.

Novus’ climate change experts develop predictions of weather hazards using models such as WRF, MM5, and GEM-LAM with a specific plug-in based on the desired meteorological output.
