Radars are a vital tool for weather forecasters because they provide a detailed picture of storms as they’re happening. A new radar technique is improving the picture for forecasters, helping them provide more accurate information about rain and snow storms. Developed by researchers at University of Oklahoma Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies supporting NOAA’s […]
Ever wonder how a radar functions and gets those colorful images seen on tv and the internet? As part of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Oklahoma, Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies researchers are teaching a class on NEXRAD Weather Radar. The nearly month long class — “NEXRAD Weather Radar: How it […]
The national weather radar system used throughout the United States by NOAA National Weather Service forecasters to “see” weather across the country is unique because it can be upgraded and modified with the newest capabilities, unlike other systems worldwide. Because of this, and the need to work with experts in radar signal processing for improving […]
