Subtle features in thunderstorms captured by rapid scanning phased array radar could alert forecasters to the potential of severe weather.
Radar Research News
The American Red Cross of Central Oklahoma is using a suite of tools developed by NSSL to revolutionize the disaster assessment process following severe weather.
A team of NSSL/CIMMS scientists were awarded the prestigious Professor Dr. Vilho Vaisala Award for their Outstanding Research Paper, “Rapid Sampling of Severe Storms by the National Weather Radar Testbed Phased Array Radar.”
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.
Focused observations of storms lead to faster updates since the radar does not waste time scanning clear-air regions.
