On the subcontinent of India, monsoon rainfall provides water for drinking, agriculture, and hydroelectricity, but it can also cause deadly floods and landslides. Professor Joe Fernando measures oceanic and atmospheric wave patterns to develop models that will predict monsoons up to several weeks in advance. By knowing when and where the rains will come in, planners can better manage the water as a resource and help prevent destruction.
