Hazard Forecasting Methods Could Revolutionize Hydrology Monitoring
Researchers have adapted remote, mobile methods to monitor waterways, potentially revolutionizing how hydrology monitoring takes place before, during, and after storms....

The Hail Problem
Unlike some other forms of precipitation, hail comes in bursts of short duration, falls over isolated and unpredictable locations, and usually occupies only a small percentage of the total...

Hail Concepts
Hail, the product of vigorous deep convection, requires those same conditions that are conducive to the development of thunderstorms. These conditions include water vapor, especially in...
