Title: Webinar #65 - CoCoRaHS WxTalk: Into the wind…Oh, the places mobile radars will go!
Date: Thursday, March 21, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM Eastern, Noon Central, 11:00 AM Mountain, 10:00 AM Pacific

”The Doppler on Wheels (DOW) mobile radars have been used, often in tandem with other instrumentation, to study tornado formation and structure, the boundary layer of landfalling hurricanes, the internal structure of lake effect snow bands, the gust front structure of potentially severe-wind producing MCSs, and other mesoscale phenomena. Some key findings include the existence of rear-flank downdraft surges, which may impact tornadogenesis, the existence of strong winds in tornadoes very close to the surface, small scale structures that may impact energy distribution and wind speeds in the near surface hurricane boundary layer, and the existence of misovortices in intense lake-effect snow bands. As part of this webinar, Karen will share with you the adventures (and misadventures!) of learning about tornadoes, hurricanes, winter storms, and other high impact weather from over a decade of field work...and discuss what projects are on the horizon.
