NSSL’s Robert Davies-Jones received the 2010 NOAA Distinguished Career Award for scientific achievements in the application of observations and theory to the understanding of the dynamics of severe convective storms and tornado genesis mechanisms.
NSSL and NSSL/CIMMS scientists will be presenting their work at the 46th annual Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union next week in San Francisco, Calif. They will also be available in the NOAA booth to answer questions and display their research data.
NSSL’s Bob Rabin was a volunteer judge at the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) National Conference in Denver, Colo., earlier this month. Rabin judged both oral and poster presentations.
The Hazardous Weather Testbed Spring Forecast Experiment was in full operation on May 20, 2013 as the tornado tore through Newcastle and Moore, OK.
The experimental Tornado Debris Signature algorithm uses dual-pol radar data to map areas of debris.
Scientists have re-examined the March 18, 1925 Tri-State Tornado was unusually severe, killing 695 people while it was on the ground for a record 219 miles crossing parts of Missouri, Illinois and Indiana.
Today, researchers launched the Mesoscale Predictability EXperiment (MPEX) field project to collect data on pre-storm and post-storm environments in an effort to better predict where and when thunderstorms will form. MPEX runs from May 15 – June 15, and is funded by the National Science Foundation.
