An NSSL scientist is joining forces with the Department of Energy and NASA in a field campaign to gather perhaps the most complete data set ever obtained for studying continental…
The NSSL/CIMMS radar clutter filter is being transferred to the National Weather Service (NWS) for engineering evaluation as a complete ground clutter removal solution for future upgrades of the WSR-88D…
NSSL scientists are preparing to host dozens of researchers, modelers and forecasters from around the world to work side-by-side on improving severe weather forecasts and warnings.
Dr. Astrid-Christina Koch, the Science Counselor for Science, Technology and Education of the Delegation of the European Union in Washington D.C. will be meeting with NSSL scientists on Wednesday April…
The first annual workshop for the Warn-on-Forecast project was held on 23 February 2011 in Norman, Oklahoma, on the University of Oklahoma campus.
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.
NOAA World online magazine posted an article called “The Hazardous Weather Testbed: Incubating New Ideas for Better Storm Forecasting” in their latest issue under the “Science and Technology” category.
The cornerstone of the testbed is the annual NOAA HWT Spring Experiment that attracts 50-60 researchers and forecasters to Norman each year.
NSSL researchers are partnering with the National Weather Service (NWS) Warning Decision Training Branch (WDTB) and National Sea Grant at the University of Oklahoma to facilitate a training session called “Communicating/Interpreting Crucial Weather Info During a Hurricane Impact” at the 2010 National Hurricane Conference in Orlando, Fla. on March 30, 2010.
Researchers from NSSL’s Radar Research and Development Division are perfecting their radar relay handoff as they rotate through Birch Bay, Washington to operate the NOAA-Xband dual-POLarized (NO-XP) mobile radar in support of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
