This program examines how electronics systems monitor the environment to help scientists influence certain weather conditions and understand the impact on humans and animals in a variety of scenarios. One example is the unique electronic systems developed to regulate humidity and temperature in a biome designed to emulate the Amazon Rainforest. With advancements in science and engineering, not only can we predict and limit the impact of environmental disasters, but we can imitate nature itself. Flooding is a natural disaster that affects people all over the world. Electronic river management systems are being put in place so potential flooding can be identified and possibly controlled. This program shows how we are utilizing electronics to understand environmental conditions and help to avoid disaster. As more biomes across the planet experience extremes in weather and as more natural disasters such as hurricanes and tsunamis affect densely populated areas, this technology will increase in importance.
