Special Weather and Climate Seminar Firm Behavior in the Face of Severe Weather: Studying the Effects of Deterministic and Probabilistic Warning Systems Alison Boehmer Friday, April 26th NWC 1350/11:00 am In the face of increasing severe weather, particularly tornadoes, it is necessary to understand how firms process and react to information related to storms. […]
Abstract: In the southern great plains, winter weather can have large impacts due to heavy icing and inadequate mitigation resources. The boundary between cold arctic air from the north and warm gulf moisture to the south is a consistent forecasting challenge for models even in the short-term.
Tropopause-penetrating convection is capable of rapidly transporting air from the lower troposphere to the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere (UTLS). Since the vertical redistribution of gases in the atmosphere by convection can have important impacts on the chemistry of the UTLS, the radiative budget, and climate, it has become a recent focus of observational and modeling studies.
Quantifying Precipitation Efficiency and the Drivers of Excessive Precipitation in Post-Landfall Hurricane Harvey Weather and Climate Systems Noah Brauer April 10, 2019 3:00pm/ NWC 5600 Abstract: Hurricane Harvey produced widespread rainfall amounts over 100 cm to portions of Southeast Texas, including Houston from 26-31 August 2017. The highly efficient and prolonged warm rain processes associated […]
