A TAPPAS visualization was created to determine if an exotic pest found in Kalumburu, Australia, could have travelled from Indonesia on the wind.

A TAPPAS visualization was created to determine if an exotic pest found in Kalumburu, Australia, could have travelled from Indonesia on the wind.

A collaboration among Australia’s national science agency (CSIRO), Bureau of Meteorology and Intersect created TAPPAS (Tool for Assessing Pest and Pathogen Aerial Spread), an online software tool for modeling the wind dispersal of living organisms.

Modelling wind dispersion involves combining outputs from global wind-circulation models with dispersion models and knowledge of the biology or properties of the organisms or particles. Results can be used to better prepare and respond to threats as well as design surveillance or monitoring programs.
