Advanced Weather Systems for Mining Operations

1 076 vues

Publié le

Presented at the 2013 Society of Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration Annual Meeting (SME 2013). Severe weather conditions can affect several aspects of the mining operations including blasting, planning and scheduling, people safety, and flooding. An advanced weather system should deliver real-time critical weather information able to support mining operations and people safety through weather forecast, lightning information, precipitation forecasts, and alerts.
