The Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) at UNC Asheville will host an open house for attendees of the American Meteorological Society’s 19th Conference on Applied Climatology. The open house will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Monday, July 18, at the RENCI at UNC Asheville Engagement Site, located in the Grove Arcade in downtown Asheville. The RENCI at UNC Asheville Engagement Site provides leading-edge technology for area decision makers and other collaborators in the areas of disaster research, mitigation, and preparedness, taking advantage of Western North Carolina’s expertise in weather and climate modeling, visualization, and public outreach.
Conference attendees will see a 16-foot visualization wall, an immersive GeoDome, and 3-D visualizations in action as they learn about projects such as the Urban Growth Model for the Asheville region, the Buncombe County Multi-Hazard Risk Tool, geographic information systems (GIS)-based analysis of threats to eastern forests, flooding impacts and mitigation, and geospatial climate information viewers.
