Digest: Recent Data-Driven Research and Innovation


The realms of industry and academia can often feel like separate worlds. On one hand, industry can offer the promise of rapid innovation, personable products, and eye-catching marketing techniques. Meanwhile, academia can provide thoughtful ideological development, thorough research, and groundbreaking discoverings. However, both of these realms, especially in the fields of climate and environment, have been steadily integrating available data towards finding cutting-edge scientific discoveries and innovations.


Snow Hypothesis for the Holidays


In the last two years, we applied Planet OS data sets to visualize the snow conditions before Christmas. This year, we decided to take a look into snow conditions again to find out whether or not we will have a snow-filled holiday season. For this analysis, we used a high-quality snow cover dataset and the Planet OS API.


Hurricanes and Disaster Resilience: Does Data Present New Solutions?


On August 24, 2019, a tropical wave in the Central Atlantic developed into an extremely powerful, long-lived cyclone, Hurricane Dorian. Hurricane Dorian caused catastrophic damage to the northwestern Bahamas and caused significant destruction in the southeastern United States, and later Atlantic Canada. The hurricane left an estimated 70,000 people homeless and caused billions of dollars in material destruction.
