Brian Etherton (GSD) and Gerry Creager (NSSL) are co-chairing the first Symposium on High Performance Computing associated with an AMS Annual Meeting.
NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) forecasters will test how lightning data impacts the warning process during convective events in the NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed from July 21-August 29. The project is a collaboration between NSSL and Earth Networks, Inc., a private weather company.
A research team from NSSL is leading the NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed – Hydro 2014 (HWT-hydro) project from July 7 – Aug. 1 to evaluate and improve experimental products used…
More than 200 national and international lightning experts have gathered this week in Norman, Oklahoma, for what organizers have called “the most important international conference on atmospheric electricity in the world.”
Bob Rabin participated in a field project in Goose Bay, Labrador in late February. The Satellite Applications for Arctic Weather and SAR (Search and Rescue) Operations (SAAWSO) was sponsored by Environment Canada and lead by Dr. Ismail Gultepe from the Cloud physics and Severe Weather Research Division.
Through June, NSSL is partnering with the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology EXperiment (IPHEX) to understand warm season precipitation caused by complex terrain in the area, and the relationship between precipitation patterns and hydrologic processes.
As severe weather approaches central Oklahoma this spring, NSSL/Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies researchers will be using a new version of the operational software that runs on the National Weather Radar Testbed Phased Array Radar (NWRT PAR) to study fast-changing storms.
NSSL scientists Jidong Gao, David Stensrud and the University of Oklahoma School of Meteorology professor Xuguang Wang have received a significant research grant from the National Science Foundation to develop new techniques that will help improve convective-scale (1km) weather prediction.
NSSL scientists Jidong Gao, David Stensrud, and Louis Wicker were among five invited guest editors for a special issue of Advances in Meteorology, an open access international journal.
Weather radar research is a key part of NSSL’s mission in support of the NOAA National Weather Service (NWS). This week, NSSL/CIMMS scientists will share the latest in weather radar research at the American Meteorological Society’s 2013 Conference on Radar Meteorology in Breckenridge, Colo.
