WSR-57 display with signal integration (and on color display)

[The image shows a large area of relectivity with lower values in green and yellow, progressing to higher reflectivities in orange and red indicative of storm severity]

Radar research at NSSL, and continued by NSSL engineer Dale Sirmans, leads to the development of weather signal integrators and color displays that show in real time the level of the storm’s reflectivity—an indicator of storm severity.
