Forensic Meteorology Services

December 5, 2023

The experts on the Rimkus Meteorology team analyze meteorological data related to weather and climate to reconstruct and assess conditions surrounding a particular event.

A thorough understanding of weather conditions can be a key component in matters requiring scientific investigation, and although weather conditions can be the single factor relating to a scientific investigation, more commonly, they are contributing factors relating to an assessment conducted by our consultants practicing in other services areas.

Details matter. Simply providing “numbers,” for example, estimated hail size or maximum wind speed, oftentimes gives only a piece of the investigative puzzle and does not offer the scientific insight and meteorological experience our clients require. Rimkus experts provide the details of a weather event, including the magnitude, direction, and duration of the weather conditions. This critical data analysis allows our clients to make informed decisions.

By examining factors like wind patterns, precipitation, and temperature change, our meteorologists can provide valuable insights to clients as well as aid other Rimkus experts in the determination of causation and the assessment of damage in various cases, such as property loss, mechanical/electrical failures, personal injury, and traffic accidents.
