NSSL’s Dusan Zrnic was awarded the 2010 Technology Transfer Award by NOAA for “developing a novel way to measure linear orthogonal polarimetric variables without a switch that was patented and transferred to the private sector producing significant savings in the implementation of commercial dual polarization radars.”
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.”
The collaborative Coastal and Inland-Flooding Observation and Warning Project (CI-FLOW) released a new video demonstrating how their prototype total water level simulation system can help improve NWS flood forecasting and save lives of people residing and working in coastal watersheds.
The NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) deployed a mobile radar near Durango, Colorado, during the month of August to collect data on thunderstorm rainfall and resulting flash flooding.
