Disaster mitigation Competence Centre
- Eric Yen (AS)
Disaster Mitigation Competence Centre (DMCC) is building an open platform for open collaboration on Asia Pacific regional natural disaster mitigation by making use of e-Science methodologies. Scientific gateways of tsunami and weather simulation and analysis are the focuses of the first project year. iCOMCOT and gWRF are the primary application portals for the tsunami waveform transmission and analysis and the weather analysis respectively. Use cases driven approach dominates the workflow, components, and computing models of the system design. Potential hazards of tsunami sourced from the Manila trench, historical tsunami sources identification in the South China Sea, Thailand flood in 2011 and Malaysia flood in late 2014 are the target cases proposed by the members of DMCC in the first year.
