A Hurricane Decision Simulator for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Forces in New Orleans
MetadataShow full item record
We build a computer-based tool to help train U.S. Marine Forces Reserve (MARFORRES) decision makers prepare for a hurricane affecting New Orleans. The hurricane decision simulator shows the user simulated hurricane forecasts, including track and wind-speed probability forecasts, stepping through the evolution of a storm. The hurricane forecast is updated at time steps corresponding to six hours of real- world time beginning 120 hours or more before expected landfall, and the user is asked to make decisions regarding preparation and evacuation based on the forecasts.
