  Low-cost weather sensors and 3D-printing technology may provide an alternative for research looking to make a big impact. University of Oklahoma Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies research associates are conducting a year-long data comparison of a low-cost weather station with an Oklahoma Mesonet site in Norman, Oklahoma. The CIMMS station measures temperature, relative […]

Project using unmanned aerial systems started May 8

Meteorologists are always looking for better ways to measure the lower atmosphere. This spring, researchers from NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) will join with others to test the value of airborne, mobile observing systems for observing important changes in the local environment that can spawn severe thunderstorms in a new way. EPIC, the Environmental […]
