Researchers with the Coastal and Inland Flooding Observation and Warning (CI-FLOW) project are preparing for Hurricane Irene to test their total water level prediction system in North Carolina later this week.
Monthly Weather Review has published the results of an observation system simulation experiment (OSSE) that shows how measurements from various hypothetical remote-sensing networks would impact weather analyses and forecasts.
An NSSL algorithm developed in collaboration with Arizona’s Salt River Project (SRP) alerts the power company of the potential for a dust storm.
NSSL’s dual-polarized mobile Doppler radar was used to study the skies during dust storm events in Arizona.
Researchers from NSSL and CIMMS have published the first study to combine rapidly-updating phased array radar data with high-resolution lightning data to study lightning behavior in a hail storm.
Severe weather in Oklahoma this spring has offered opportunities for collecting data.
Seven destructive tornadoes struck Oklahoma on May 24, 2011. The tornadoes were well forecast by the National Weather Service (NWS), and NSSL was in position to capture the storms in several ways.
The NSSL/CIMMS Severe Hazards Analysis and Verification Experiment (SHAVE) are collecting hail, wind damage and flash flooding reports through phone surveys from now through mid-August.
NSSL scientists have begun the 2011 Phased Array Innovative Sensing Experiment (PARISE). PARISE runs from May 2-June 19. During PARISE, teams of NSSL scientists will operate the National Weather Radar…
NSSL scientists will be launching instrumented balloons into thunderstorms this spring to learn more about storm electricity and how it relates to different kinds of precipitation. The project runs from…
