INCLIMATE: The Storms of Massachusetts
Interactive Database Concept | Spring 2015
The winter of 2015 was one of much discussion in the New England region of the U.S. But there was more than just snow occurring. INCLIMATE is an interactive database concept highlighting major storms to hit the state of Massachusetts since the 1870’s, when the first severe weather warning system was established in the United States.
Intended to be a resource for storm information and forecasting history, INCLIMATE has the potential to be an ongoing database and archive beyond the state limits. Each passing year would introduce new storms into its collection and include photo documentation and forecasting milestones as well as preparation tactics for major storms. One of the goals of INCLIMATE is to preserve historical information on storms and forecasting, as it tends to get lost or lose value as time goes on.
