Weather forecasting is one of the crucial things a nation or a country must give much attention. With an insufficient weather forecasting, an incorrect detection may lead to a chaotic nation once a natural disaster occurs.
That is why technology is quite important in the field of weather forecasting. A single mistake could cause the lives of so many people.
Thanks to our technological advancements, forecasting can now be done accurately in a timely manner before any hurricane, storm, earthquake or whatever disaster could hit us.
One important contribution and importance of technology in weather forecasting is the invention and use of barometer. Using this technological tool, one can detect if people in a certain area will experience a sudden change in temperature.
Another important tool in predicting hurricanes is the use of the so called “SE Technology”. This technology helps one to detect and measure specific hurricane, its speed, its temperature, its direction, height and a lot more which is really important to alert people and secure their safety.
Radars are also developed by meteorologist and even improved as human technology becomes more and more advanced. Radars are widely used to detect not just thunderstorms but also hurricanes and storms.
Prediction of earthquakes is now possible with the use of our high technology.
There’s what you call InSAR or Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar technology that is used to measure tectonic movements on Earth which is also very important to detect possible earthquakes.
It has been used since the year 1990 and it is only a proof that as years goes by, technology also improves and more and more people are becoming more aware of any possible dangers and natural disasters.
Because of technology, many lives are saved and will continue to be saved. It is therefore undeniable that technology is one of the most important things humans have.
Now, weather forecasting is more specific and more reliable. Different machines and tools are now being used to help predict upcoming weather as accurately as possible.
Thermometers that are well improved are also used in areas that are prone to thick ice of snow, tools to measure the heat and cold waves are now invented.
Obviously, humans have gone way far as compared to before when it comes to weather forecasting and that is all because of the use of technology. Without it, human race may have a slim chance of surviving.
