DOST's Project NOAH integrated into Pagasa
MetadataShow full item record
The new weather and hazard modeling technologies developed by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) will be transferred to its weather arm. Projects NOAH (Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards) and DREAM (Disaster Risk Exposure Assessment for Mitigation) are expected to be fully integrated into the system of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) to improve the state weather bureau’s capabilities. “Three years since DOST launched Project NOAH in July 2012, we have created a great number of disaster management tools and science-based tools like flood hazard maps that we are now using to help identify risk-prone areas near the 18 major river systems in the country,” DOST Secretary Mario Montejo said.
