Every spring, researchers and forecasters have come together in the NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed but this year they’re trying something new.
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.
NSSL’s Dave Stensrud, Ph.D., recently gave a Short Course on “Parameterization Schemes for Numerical Weather Prediction Models” at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics in the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing.
