Project Rough Rider (Jean Lee, c.a.1960s-80s)
- FAA supported research to relate radar measurements to aviation hazards
(e.g., hail, turbulence, etc.)
- This research lead to FAA advisories to the aviation industry for avoidance
of thunderstorm hazards to safe flight
This was one of the earliest practical applications of weather radar research at NSSL. The early work utilized the WSR-57 data, and then the Doppler data.
