Advancements in Radar Technology to Detect Severe Local Storms
The second aspect discussed are the trade-offs and limitations of current and future radar technologies and their applications. These trade offs and limitations are driven by several elements, such as radar engineering design, scanning strategy design, radar coverage, and signal processing techniques. The third aspect discussed is assessment of the current challenges and how future advancements in radar technology may improve detection and warning for severe local storms over the next 5 to 10 years. This part of the presentation will explore how advancements in radar technology and the assimilation of radar observations into models could transform our warning paradigm from one in which we warn-on-detection of severe storm precursors, to one where we warn-on-forecast.
