Innovator: National Digital Twin
Met scientist involved with The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago's Adopt a River Program in Dec 2019, asked to volunteer ideas to assist the water authority through the seven years of lower than expected annual rainfall, daily temperatures of 35°C, water rationing nationwide, ideas including collecting and simple water saving methods and education projects in schools. (the root cause being leaking ailing infer-structure)
National Digital Twin programme (NDTp) link, created by the Centre for Digital Britain at the University of Cambridge and housed at the Connected Places Catapult. improving resilience of vital infrastructure Water, Power and communications to the extremes of climate change. Auditing the network and Plan built in tolerance, servicing PM preventative maintenance, using PLM Product Lifecycle Management.
A free collaborative, data-sharing approach designed to improve resilience to climate change, Examining the impact of extreme weather on energy, water and telecom's networks, the Climate Resilience Demonstrator (CReDo) now adopted by 77 countries around the World. (see conservation)
Reduce Energy use and Light pollution
2019 submitted Proposal to the STFC, ground measurements of the position and physical illumination of Moonlight, for planning solar farms the latest generation of solar panels work at night, to monitor light pollution and reduce power consumption of Smart Cities.
Creating a CIE Moon sky dome link, As their is for the Sun recorded at key locations including major airports around the globe, used in Physically Based Render (PBR) lighting environments.
The health of the Rain Forrest was monitored using a plate camera, ground based photograph taken through the Forrest Canape.
Spent time studying the British library's finest treasures, Leonardo da Vinci's: Codex Arundel, at A Mind in Motion exhibition link. sketchbooks containing studies of the Moonlight and its cause and effects on water,
visited museum in Arabia of the early studies of algebra and astrology, scholars where some of finest mathematicians.
Light pollution monitoring
Dr Christopher Kyba, a scientist from the German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam, told the BBC: "Our view of the stars is disappearing". 2023 conclusion of 12 years of amateur astronomers and citizen scientists going out at night to count the stars, almost 10% annual increase in sky brightness every year. According to a 2022 study by the European Space Agency link the relatively low cost of LED lighting is also contributing to the problem.
Digital Twins smart city reduce power consumption and Light pollution* enjoying viewing the Milky Way with the naked eye, Provided details of free Architectural lighting design software RELUX which contains a library of two million luminaires from manufactures used by architectural planners to prisoner reform at RSA.
Oceanographic and Climate Research
Computational ocean modeling key tool in oceanographic and climate research, and python code for validation of oil spill modelling are carried out by the STFC Hartree centre. link
Dec 2019 met Trinidadian scientist, requesting assistance with water authority project, seven years of lower than expected annual rainfall and daily temperatures of 35°C, leading to national water rationing and flash flooding from tropical storms. (see Eng) (carried out for free)
While designing the interior of two floors of Doha Tower Dubai, The owner of the engineering company which build the Burj Al Arab Dubai presented me with dishdasha infused with Arabian Oud.
Built in the shape of the sail from traditional pearl diving boats, filled with winds created from cycle of warm sea air cooling in the mountains, creating breeze over the land into the Arabian gulf, bring with them sand storms collecting participial and depositing them at distance.
Wadi's are the dry river beds running down from the maintains which fill when there are flash floods, rain fall has increased compared to the first British person to cross the desert around the UAE known as the empty quilter, rains didn't return for the next 10 years, before records where kept.
Sustainability: Renewable energy
Solar panels generated the majority of electricity in our home, with feed in tariff paid to exported electricity to the national Grid (in England), using electricity smart meter managing kW kilowatt-hours used, using power hungry electrical appliances only on Sunny days.
Volenteer: Trust for Urban Ecology
Volunteered for a year with the trust for Urban Ecology, steward of the woodland space surveying birds and insects loping tree's and replanting native species in a sustainable woodland. Maintaining urban Woodland spaces for the public to relax and enjoy tranquil Nature and escape the hectic Modern Metropolis, protecting Biodiversity and native species, in a pocket of the Great North Woods in London.
