Meteorological Technology World Expo to feature NSSL researcher

NSSL’s Kurt Hondl will be a featured speaker at the first Meteorological Technology World Expo on Tuesday, October 18 2011 in Brussels, Belgium. Hondl is one of eight speakers from the U.S., and the only one to represent NOAA.

Hondl will speak on “Rapid sampling of severe storms by phased array radar.”  The National Weather Radar Testbed phased-array radar in Norman, Okla. has unique electronic scanning capabilities that can reveal the detailed evolution of severe weather precursors to potentially extend warning lead-time. The presentation was co-written with NSSL’s Pamela Heinselman.
