NOAH (Nationwide Assessment of Hazards) is an advance warning service developed by the Phillipines to manage the risk of natural disasters such as typhoons, floods, landslides, and volcanos – the Philippines is a country that has it all. Ranking 3rd place on the World Risk Index, behind Vanuatu and Tonga, the Philippines is heavily exposed to extreme weather.
The Philippines’ research, education and government information network PREGINET plays a vital role, reliably interconnecting the NOAH infrastructure of water level and landslide sensors, rain gauges, satellites and radars, and making data accessible to a wide range of users.
The In the Field site is a global collaboration showcasing fascinating stories about people and projects making a difference and connected by research and education networks worldwide.
