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 […]
Several researchers from The University of Oklahoma Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies recently took their meteorological knowledge to the opposite side of the world to help train others in the field. CIMMS researchers with NOAA’s Warning Decision Training Division participated in the International Symposium on Earth-Science Challenges in Kyoto, Japan. They taught a short […]
Weather doesn’t stop at borders. Nowhere is this more clear than in Europe, where two researchers working at the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory went shoulder to shoulder with researchers in the European Severe Storms Laboratory Testbed this summer. The goal was to collaborate on forecast products and learn how NSSL technologies are used abroad. […]
The following significant paper publication was reported to headquarters the week of May 19. NOAA and CIMMS authors are bolded. “Collaborative Efforts between the United States and United Kingdom to Advance Prediction of High-Impact Weather” By John S. Kain (NSSL) , Steve Willington, Adam J. Clark (NSSL), Steven J. Weiss (NWS SPC), Mark Weeks, Israel L. Jirak […]
CIMMS’ Dale Morris and Alex Zwink, associates with WDTD, traveled to Boulder, Fort Collins, and Kansas City this month to install WES-2.
The Advanced Radar Techniques (ART) team at CIMMS/NSSL has been collaborating with UK Met on weather-radar signal processing techniques.
