Hyperspectral modeling during severe weather

Hyperspectral soundings — for example the Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) on NOAA-20/Suomi-NPP and the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) on MetOp — observe the atmosphere at thousands of wavelengths in the near-infrared and infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The excellent spectral resolution allows for good vertical resolution of temperature... Read More

Forecasting storms with AI

Severe weather season is underway across the southern U.S. NOAA and CIMSS are using satellite, radar, and lightning observations of thunderstorms to develop and evaluate artificial intelligence (AI) tools that forecast and diagnose convection.The NOAA/CIMSS ProbSevere portfolio has several such tools to help forecasters keep tabs on storms.
