Abstract:

New developments in atmospheric sensing and modeling present the opportunity for significant advancements in local weather modeling and forecasting. New sensors include wind radar, microwave profiler and GPS networks. These sensors provide continuous wind,temperature and humidity measurements. We propose in Phase I to demonstrate the assimilation of these data into high-resolution weather models and to evaluate the potential of the resulting weather forecasts for military and commercial applications. If theresults are promising, we will propose in Phase II to develop a turnkey system using these new data types for local weather modeling and forecasting.Turnkey systems for local weather modeling can be used to improve artillery and rocket accuracy, to predictatmospheric dispersion of chemical, biological and nuclear materials, and for battlefield visibility and weather forecasting. Similarly, commercial and civil applications include local weather forecasting for efficient and safe management of sporting andother outdoor events, construction projects, airports, space ports, and ground transportation.
