Rainfall scarce resource in opportunity country

, : Rainfall scarce resource in opportunity country. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London B Biological Sciences 278(962): 439-455

The rainfall of semi-arid lands [Sahara, Arabia, Indo-Pakistan] represents a major resource where contemporary and traditional technologies have increasing parts to play in more effective utilization. Though infrequent, rains can be heavy and widespread even in regions normally arid, as a result of major disturbances of global systems of winds and weather which are typically recognizable in the course of routine synoptic weather analysis.

Conventional triage algorithms assume unlimited medical resource availability. After a nuclear detonation, medical resources are likely to be particularly limited, suggesting that conventional triage algorithms need to be rethought. To test variou...
