Starting today, researchers, modelers and forecasters from around the world will work together in a simulated operational forecasting environment to improve severe weather forecasts and warnings during the 2012 NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed Spring Experiment.
A new outreach video about the NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed Spring Experiment was just released on YouTube. Created with a video game theme, the video opens with “Top weather minds unite in the quest for a better forecast.”
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.
NSSL scientists presented current research at the American Meteorological Society’s Severe Local Storms Conference Oct. 11-14 in Denver Colo.
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.
A brewing winter storm was the main topic at the “Map Discussion” on Monday during the last week in January, 2010.
NSSL scientists will present current research at the National Weather Association Annual Meeting to be held in Norfolk, VA from October 18-22, 2009. The theme of the meeting is: “The Future is Now: New Technologies and Techniques to Support the Weather Enterprise and Society: 2010 and Beyond.”
A new program to extend the use of geostationary satellite data in the operational environment has kicked off this spring in the NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed at the National Weather Center in Norman, Okla.
The Experimental Forecasting Program (EFP) branch of the NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed conducted its annual 2009 Spring Experiment, organized by the SPC and the National Severe Storms Laboratory, from May 4 through June 5.
