About the research
The purpose of this research is to outline a path forward for the creation of a working group of experts to serve to advance the state-of-the-practice of weather severity indices (WSI).
To accomplish this task, the following will be completed:
- Create a white paper on the current state-of-the-practice
- Identify issues with WSIs
- Identify lessons learned in the process of development
These lessons learned will serve as the basis for identifying individuals and agencies to be invited to participate in the working group. Finally, the effort will result in the coordination and assembly of a volunteer working group to review the state-of-the-practice of WSIs, known issues, and work to identify methods to solve these issues.
