  • The weather warning system was set up by the Hungarian Meteorological Service (HMS) in 2006. The first system was capable to provide warnings and alerts for the 7 administrative regions of the country. In 2011 as a result of scientific
  • and methodological development and infrastructural investment, financed by a competition support, the old system was replaced with a sub-regional weather warning system providing weather warnings towards the public, the disaster management and other decision-makers
  • Community-based strategies for coping with food scarcity : a role in African famine early-warning systems
  • of information which has the potential for improving the spatial specificity of early-warning systems.
  • Famine and famine early warning : some contributions by geographers
  • After the famines in sub-Saharan Africa in the 1970s, the international community developed early warning systems of food security emergencies. Much of the theory employed to operationalize the information technology has come from geographers

  • Worldwide disaster warning with satellites
  • The Swedish Road Weather Information System is a tool for road winter maintenance giving warnings about risk of slipperiness and severe weather conditions. The system is based on climatological research at the University of Göteborg. Knowledge about
  • micro- and local climate variations is crucial when it comes to forecasting and giving warnings about different kinds of weather-related traffic disturbances. The progress of climatological research has made it possible to increase the use of road
  • France's heat health watch warning system
  • This paper deals with a statistical model to define warning thresholds for shallow and deep-seated landslides in Emilia-Romagna, Italy. The study was performed in the framework of a joint research project with the aim of implementing a warning
