Session 3A Quasi-Operational Products You Can Use Now—The View from The Dry and Wet Side

Monday, 13 January 2020: 2:00 PM-4:00 PM
157C (Boston Convention and Exhibition Center)
Host: 36th Conference on Environmental Information Processing Technologies
Tiffany C. Vance, NOAA, NOS/IOOS, Silver Spring, MD and Jennifer Mahoney, NOAA/OAR/ESRL/GSD, Boulder, CO

This session aims to bring attention to those applications, technologies, or techniques that are well advanced with respect to the Technology Readiness Level continuum. These applications, technologies, or techniques have not yet been made officially operational by organizations such as the National Weather Service, but are being produced regularly in an "operational like" manner and made available for general use. Historical examples are the HRRR forecast model, the MRMS precipitation and severe weather analysis/nowcasting system, harmful algal bloom (HAB) forecasts, high frequency radar (HFR) wave and current estimates, and the MADIS repository for surface observations and other observations.
