Guest Blog Post - PIRE fellows in Namibia

PIRE Fellows Race Clark and Zac Flamig (meteorology PhD candidates at the University of Oklahoma) traveled to Windhoek, Namibia in the spring of 2015 to work with government officials and other local stakeholders to improve forecasting and monitoring of flood and drought impacts within the country. Namibia is a stable and prosperous middle-income country in an arid and semi-arid region with highly variable rainfall. Many citizens are heavily dependent on agriculture, which increases the need for accurate flood and drought monitoring. For all these reasons, Namibia has been an ideal place to build local capacity to effectively use hydrological models, remote sensing platforms, and cloud computing.
