Session 8B Advances in Radar Usage for Weather Analysis and Forecasting - I

Wednesday, 15 January 2020: 10:30 AM-12:00 PM
258A (Boston Convention and Exhibition Center)
Host: 30th Conference on Weather Analysis and Forecasting (WAF)/26th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP)
Gregory J. Stumpf, CIMMS/Univ. of Oklahoma and NOAA/NWS/Meteorological Development Laboratory, Norman, OK

This session will be hosted by the 30th Conference on Weather Analysis and Forecasting (30WAF). We welcome abstracts on the use of new radar data (mobile radars, phased-array, dual-polarization products, etc.) and novel applications of pre-existing radar data.
