A bird’s eye view!. NSSL is working on an experimental instrument train attached to a weather balloon that includes a radiosonde (temperature, relative humidity, wind, altitude), an electric field meter, and a PArticle Size, Image, and Velocity probe (PASIV). The PASIV has an HD camera and a disdrometer. New though, is a GoPro camera attached to the train above the radiosonde looking down as the balloon rises. Excerpts from the video coming soon!
An NSSL/CIMMS team has been honored with the 2013 NOAA Technology Award for the development of the Warning Decision Support System – Integrated Information On Demand (WDSS-II: On Demand).
NSSL’s Bob Rabin was a volunteer judge at the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) National Conference in Denver, Colo., earlier this month. Rabin judged both oral and poster presentations.
NSSL, CIMMS and University of Oklahoma researchers have launched a new project to collect public observations of flooding that will help improve flash-flood prediction and warning tools in the US.
Weather radar research is a key part of NSSL’s mission in support of the NOAA National Weather Service (NWS). This week, NSSL/CIMMS scientists will share the latest in weather radar research at the American Meteorological Society’s 2013 Conference on Radar Meteorology in Breckenridge, Colo.
A team from NSSL will partner with the NOAA Hydrometeorological Testbed at the Weather Prediction Center to host the 1st annual Flash Flood and Intense Rainfall Experiment (FFaIR).
