Temperature Climatology

NEXRAD radars can measure radial winds when the temperature is above 50 F. This analysis shows the areas and months for which this condition is met over the continental US.

Continental US

Operational forecasts have been produced for predicting the possible transport and diffusion of hazardous material released into the atmosphere.

OKC Joint Urban

The Joint Urban 2003 Dispersion Experiment, which was conducted in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in July 2003, was the largest urban dispersion experiment in history with over 150 participants from a number of Government agencies, national laboratories, and universities.
