Researchers study lower atmosphere to answer remaining questions
While scientists have learned a lot about our planet, questions remain about the lowest part of the atmosphere where we live. Researchers at the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory are looking for answers.
NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed starts with HS-PHI experiment
The NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed is once again busy buzzing with activity as researchers kick off the year’s first research activities. From March 12-16, participants will assess a new tool using rapid-updating, high-resolution Probabilistic Hazard Information, known as PHI. HS-PHI is testing an experimental concept for delivering information to the public in a way that simulates how National Weather Service forecasters would use it within their software.
Probabilistic Hazard Information experiment completes second week
The NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed, a joint project of the National Weather Service and the National Severe Storms Laboratory, is buzzing with activity again as the Experimental Warning Program focuses on its second of three…
