As an operational meteorologist, have you ever thought, “I have a great idea to improve weather forecasting and decision support, but I need someone to help with science, research, and/or development?” Or, as a research meteorologist, have you ever thought, “I have a great idea to improve weather forecasting and decision support, but I need
A Balloonborne Particle Size, Imaging, and Velocity Probe for in Situ Microphysical Measurements. Authors: Waugh, S.M., Ziegler, C.L., MacGorman, D.R., Fredrickson, S.E., Kennedy, D.W., Rust, W.D. Journal: Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology Publication Date: Online 7/29/15 Important Conclusions: Researchers at the National Severe Storms Laboratory have developed the PArticle Size, Image, and Velocity (PASIV) probe, an instrument attached to a balloon that measures
NSSL scientists Jidong Gao, David Stensrud and the University of Oklahoma School of Meteorology professor Xuguang Wang have received a significant research grant from the National Science Foundation to develop new techniques that will help improve convective-scale (1km) weather prediction.
A new video traces NSSL’s legacy of life saving weather radar research from the development of Doppler weather radar to the most recent research with phased array radar.
