A Brief History - Our Story

In 2013, our founder, Dr. Jason Caldwell, had the pleasure of sitting down with several experts from Tennessee Valley Authority over lunch – discussing the grand plans of full quantitative risk analysis for hydrologic hazards analysis efforts forthcoming across the entire river basin. This conversation provided the impetus to consider branching out from State and Federal government into the realm of private consulting – and Weather & Water, Inc. was born in early 2014. Recognizing a need for real-world experience, Dr. Caldwell explored opportunies in water rights modeling and extensive work in precipitation-frequency at small-to-medium-sized firms – finding the missing link to use of complex data in the “language barrier” between engineers and scientists. As a multi-disciplinarian, he sought to overcome this limitation through quantitative methods (i.e., statistics). Hence, today Weather & Water allows the power of cloud computing to perform the work of many frustrated data clerks, while focusing on the ease-of-use and applicability of tools like DAART and CRAFTEA. Because, at the end of the day, as my mom bore into Jason’s skull – “Customer Service = Company Success” – and that is what we live to achieve!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower businesses with the high-quality data, products, and services necessary to exceed the standard in water resources projects for the benefit of every citizen that may be impacted by weather- and climate-related disasters.

OUR SOLUTIONS

Our services cover a wide range and we encourage you to explore our website for specifics for your industry.  That said, we are proud to offer two unique, state-of-the-art data acquisition, pre-processing, analysis, and post-processing solutions that serve as the basis for our flexible framework for custom client-based products and services:

Comprehensive Reanalysis, Analysis, and Forecasting Tools for Engineering Applications

(CRAFTEA)

This set of tools takes output from DAARTT and provides post-processing to craft products for meeting specific user needs, ranging from historical time-series to frequency-based grids to impacts-based alerts – and many, many more services in between.

Data Acquisition and Archival in Real-Time Tool (DAARTT)

This aim of the DAART tool is to collect observational, reanalysis, and forecast data – from meteorological, climatological, and hydrological sources – then apply high-performance quality control filters prior to archival in a relational database for rapid retrieval by modules within the CRAFTEA architecture.
