The Princeton Hydrological Engine provides a platform for high quality climate data feeds and analysis
The Princeton Hydrological Engine
Our engine combines data modeling and analysis across all time scales to provide comprehensive products
Crop quality and production can be affected by poor or heavy soil moisture, droughts, increased handling and storage because of transportation weather delays, and other factors. Accurately predicting and preparing for these factors through better meteorology and hydrology data can make a significant difference in crop yields. By tapping into the power of PHE, farmers and agribusinesses are able to obtain the data they need for precision agriculture decisions.
Finance & Trading
Financial institutions, such as hedge funds and insurance companies, and utility corporations in energy and power sectors, and even farming businesses, trade in weather derivatives to mitigate the negative impacts of inclement weather on their bottom line. No other outside variable shifts consumer buying behavior or supply chain management as frequently, directly, or meaningfully as the weather. PCA provides state-of-the-art weather and climate datasets that deliver an industry edge for trading with confidence in derivatives marketplaces.
In the U.S. alone, over one-third of the United States’ GDP is impacted by weather. Insuring, planning, and minimizing risk is an integral part of a reinsurer’s business intelligence. Fusing the sophistication of the Princeton Hydrological Engine with our clients’ claims and loss data, we are able to build comprehensive predictive models that optimizes risk assessment and provides insights about threats to property, casualty, crop, and specialty markets.
Development Banks & Governments
Investment programs for development depend on hyper accurate assessment of climate risk variables. Partnerships with organizations like The World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank leverage PCA’s data platform to bring as much information as possible to sustainable development initiatives. Planning for long term economic growth depends upon being flexible for a changing climate. With trackable, responsive, user-friendly data, PCA delivers tailored data products that are effectively translated for on-the-ground use.
