Beach Advisory Decision Making

Beach Advisory Decision Making

In partnership with the Southeast Coast Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA) and the University of South Carolina, IAN automated and improved the accuracy of beach advisory decision making for Myrtle Beach South Carolina. The improvements resulted from integrating information from Ocean Observing Systems and radar-based rainfall data from the National Weather Service to improve bacteria concentration predictions. Results are presented in an easy to use, visual format for beach managers.
