In July, Under Secretary of Commerce Kathryn D. Sullivan announced the award of a NOAA Silver Medal for engineering/science achievement to the team that worked on the Multi-Radar Multi-Sensor program at NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory. While only Federal employees were named on the award, many CIMMS researchers were involved in this collaboration, and we recognize their hard work!
CIMMS co-authors on the paper “Multi-Radar Multi-Sensor (MRMS) Quantitative Precipitation Estimation: Initial Operating Capabilities”:
