A study of tornadoes in the southeast begins its second year as NOAA Research announces awards of $2.5 million in grants. Scientists from more than 20 organizations are part of VORTEX-Southeast, a program to understand how environmental factors characteristic of the southeastern United States affect the formation, intensity, structure and path of tornadoes in this region.
A new program supported by NSSL is testing the use of stream radar to improve flood forecasting. Learn more.
The conference is still several months away, but check out the work NSSL researchers will present at AMS 2017!
Researchers with the Coastal and Inland Flooding Observation and Warning (CI-FLOW) project are preparing for Tropical Storm Hermine to test their total water level system in North Carolina. The CI-FLOW system captures the complex interaction between rainfall, river flows, waves, tides and storm surge, and how they impact water levels in coastal North Carolina.
This paper describes how NSSL scientists and NWS forecasters evaluate new tools and techniques through real-time testbed operations for the improvement of flash flood detection and warning operations.
This paper investigates flash flooding fatalities from 1996 to 2014 across the United States, providing insight into the circumstances and context of the flooding.
This paper reports elucidates three-dimensional features thought to play an important role in creating and maintaining the tornado vortex.
Airborne measurements from the NOAA P-3 aircraft provide valuable new insights into distinct atmospheric characteristics.
This paper provides a comprehensive description of the initial operating capabilities of the MRMS QPE system.
A diverse group of scientists is coming together to improve how severe weather information is conveyed to the public.
