  1. 8.4.1W: Comprehensive Analysis of Lower Atmosphere for Support to Firefighting

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    Wildfire-suppression costs are estimated at $3B per year, with additional costs for damage to property, infrastructure, health, and natural resources. More importantly, many firefighters and homeowners lose their lives during evacuations and when fires make unpredictable movements. Many researchers have focused on the surface conditions that affect fires, but there is increasing recognition that ...

  2. 8.4.2W: Probabilistic Tool for Improving Weather Decision Services

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    Goal #1 presented in the NWS Strategic Plan (2011) is to “Improve weather decision services for events that threaten lives and livelihoods.” This will involve an effective application of probabilistic forecast information to greatly benefit many areas of government and industry, to include firefighting, emergency management, commerce, energy planning, and agriculture (NRC 2006). One key to m ...

  3. 8.4.3W: Standardized Rip Current Forecasting and Dissemination

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    According to the U.S. Lifeguard Association, rip currents cause approximately 100 fatalities per year in the U.S. The NWS has enhanced its rip current program over the last several years by: - including rip current science and forecasting into training - developing a rip current awareness website (http://www.ripcurrents.noaa.gov) - designating a yearly rip current awareness week (first week of ...

  4. 8.4.4W: Reducing Impact of Severe Space Weather on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Satellite Signal Users

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    The Nation’s critical infrastructure and economy are increasingly dependent on high accuracy GPS positioning, navigation, and timing services. Severe space weather can result in degradation or disruption of the GPS signal which in turn can prevent dual-frequency GPS receivers from locking onto the GPS satellite signal and from determining position at all (denial of service). High latitudes such ...

  5. 8.4.5D: Development of a Prototype Hyperspectral Microwave Sensor

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    Modern passive microwave space-borne sensors have only a limited number of channels available, totaling anywhere between 5 and 30 channels. This limited number of channels has been shown to be insufficient to solve for the ill-posed nature of the inversion of the geophysical state from space-borne measurements. This is especially true for cases where cloud, rain and/or ice are present in the atmos ...

  6. 8.4.6D: Low-Cost High Frequency Passive Microwave Radiometer for Ground Measurements

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    Passive microwave sensors are key sensor payloads on many operational satellites, including those operated by NOAA and EUMETSAT – the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) and the Microwave Humidity Sounder (MHS). Over the past decade, satellite-based high frequency measurements at and above 150 GHz (including those near the 183 GHz water vapor absorption band) have become extremely useful fo ...

  7. 8.4.7D: Enhanced Geospatial Query Support for Oceanic Data Discovery

    Release Date: 11-16-2011Open Date: 11-16-2011Due Date: 02-01-2012Close Date: 02-01-2012

    This subtopic focuses on development of a web service to transform a rich textual description of a geographic area into a geospatial object such as a polygon or set of polygons. This new capability will greatly enhance ease of use as well as improve people’s success in locating geospatial data. The initial domain is oceanic geospatial data at the NOAA National Data Centers (Oceanographic, Geophy ...
