NSSL/CIMMS phased array radar team awarded DOC Gold Medal
The Secretary of Commerce has awarded a Gold Medal to the NSSL/CIMMS Radar Research and Development Division for “scientific and engineering excellence in adapting military phased array radar technology to improve U.S. weather radar capabilities.”
Study cautions use of lightning trends alone to diagnose severe weather potential
Researchers from NSSL and CIMMS have published the first study to combine rapidly-updating phased array radar data with high-resolution lightning data to study lightning behavior in a hail storm.
Spring 2011 data collection
Severe weather in Oklahoma this spring has offered opportunities for collecting data.
NSSL scientists study tornadoes in their own backyard
Seven destructive tornadoes struck Oklahoma on May 24, 2011. The tornadoes were well forecast by the National Weather Service (NWS), and NSSL was in position to capture the storms in several ways.
PAR Captures Long-lived Tornado in May 24, 2011 Outbreak
The tornado outbreak forecasted by the NOAA Storm Prediction Center and the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Norman, Oklahoma became a reality as five damage-producing tornadoes struck central Oklahoma between 3 pm and 7…
New technique cuts radar update times in half to speed up warnings
As severe weather approaches central Oklahoma this spring, NSSL/Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies researchers will be able to study fast-changing storms using a new radar processing technique.
