As demand for microwave bandwidth increases, meteorological radars must
balance the benefits of utilizing a large spectrum with the significant cost of
reserving such a large bandwidth. With increased crowding of the frequency
spectrum, interference from other transmitters will become more prevalent,
affecting the integrity of meteorological data. This problem has already arisen at
the National Weather Radar Testbed's Phased Array Radar. This presentation
introduces a new algorithm known as the Interference Spike Detection Algorithm.
The Interference Spike Detection Algorithm is intended to mitigate the effects of
this interference, and early results from application of this algorithm to theoretical
and real radar data afflicted with this interference will be presented.

For accommodations based on disability, or more details, please call 325-6561. All visitors without NOAA or University of Oklahoma identification must register at the registration desk on arrival. Visitor parking is available for all University visitors. However, faculty/staff/students must have a current multi-purpose parking permit. Additional parking is available at the Lloyd Noble Center (LNC) for those individuals who do not have a parking permit. You do not need a permit to park in one of 1,200 spaces reserved for CART bus riders, although you must ride the CART shuttle to park in the reserved area. This area is on the north central side of the Lloyd Noble Center. Elsewhere at the LNC, permits are required.

The University of Oklahoma is a smoke-free / tobacco-free campus.
