RELAMPAGO 4th workshop completed

The RELAMPAGO scientific steering group met at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO this week to continue planning for field operations during the campaign.

Cold pool simulation from DOE MC3E field campaign

DAS Grad Student Geoff Marion created this high resolution simulation of cold pools emanating from the 23 May 2011 case in MC3E in north-Central Oklahoma.  Using python, Steve Nesbitt produced this animation.  The structure of the cold pool is amazing – hoping to have observations of these structures in RELAMPAGO!

Interesting QVP animation

Grad student Randy Chase made this cool animation of the Chicago snowstorm from the KLOT WSR-88D using py-ART!
