Environment Canada scientists visited NSSL on June 7 and 8 to learn more about dual-polarization research in preparation for the dual-polarimetric upgrade to their weather radar network.
NOAA World online magazine posted an article called “The Hazardous Weather Testbed: Incubating New Ideas for Better Storm Forecasting” in their latest issue under the “Science and Technology” category.
The cornerstone of the testbed is the annual NOAA HWT Spring Experiment that attracts 50-60 researchers and forecasters to Norman each year.
NSSL researchers are partnering with the National Weather Service (NWS) Warning Decision Training Branch (WDTB) and National Sea Grant at the University of Oklahoma to facilitate a training session called “Communicating/Interpreting Crucial Weather Info During a Hurricane Impact” at the 2010 National Hurricane Conference in Orlando, Fla. on March 30, 2010.
Researchers from NSSL’s Radar Research and Development Division are perfecting their radar relay handoff as they rotate through Birch Bay, Washington to operate the NOAA-Xband dual-POLarized (NO-XP) mobile radar in support of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
