Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS Study and develop advanced approaches for radar data quality control QC and assimilation that will not only optimally utilize Doppler wind information from WSR-88D and Terminal Doppler Weather Radar TDWR but also take full advantage of rapid and flexible agile-beam scans from the phased array radar at NWRT. OBJECTIVES Develop new variational methods to improve the existing radar wind analysis system so it can be applied to any radar scans to produce real-time vector wind displays and monitor data quality. Study radar data quality problems and develop statistically reliable quality control QC techniques. Explore new data assimilation techniques to optimally utilize the phased array scan capabilities.
