CIMMS and NSSL Researchers Make Advances Toward Storm-Scale Forecasts of Supercells

Researchers conducted two storm-scale experiments using model jumping off points from either a fixed physics (same sets of physics schemes) or a multiple physics (different combinations of physics schemes) mesoscale ensemble system to see which method better predicts a tornadic supercell storm. Their results show that the ensemble with jumping off points from the multiple physics ensemble forecast provides more realistic forecasts of the significant tornado parameter, dry line structure, and near surface variables.

CINAR Researchers Deploy Automated Plankton Microscopy on Recent EcoMon Survey

CINAR Researchers Deploy Automated Plankton Microscopy on Recent EcoMon Survey

Cooperative Institute for the North Atlantic Region (CINAR) researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) collaborated with the Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) to integrate continuous automated microscopic analysis of plankton with a recent Ecosystem Monitoring (EcoMon) program cruise aboard the R/V Okeanos Explorer. The successful deployment produced millions of high resolution plankton images that are providing taxon-specific information about spatial distribution patterns in waters of southern New England and the Gulf of Maine.

High Tropospheric Ozone Concentrations Due to Stratosphere-to-Troposphere Transport Reported

High Tropospheric Ozone Concentrations Due to Stratosphere-to-Troposphere Transport Reported

The journal, Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, just published results of a recent experiment examining two stratosphere-to-troposphere (STT) events observed over California. NOAA/NESDIS researchers at the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS), University of Wisconsin-Madison, are collaborating with NASA scientists, university researchers and air quality and public health scientists to analyze airborne and in situ measurements of ozone and other trace gases that accompany STT events. STT events are of concern because the ozone may increase to dangerous levels, triggering public health warnings.
