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.
Cleaning up the clutter on radars
NSSL/CIMMS researchers have developed a novel ground clutter filter that was just endorsed by the NEXRAD Technical Advisory Committee for an engineering evaluation by the NWS Radar Operations Center.
New enhanced radar scanning strategy to be tested
Focused observations of storms lead to faster updates since the radar does not waste time scanning clear-air regions.
