Utilization of Weather Radar for Hydrologic Forecasting
New technologies to collect, analyze, store, retrieve and display hydrologic data offer significant improvements to conventional methodologies used for predicting hydrologic events. Computer...

NOAA's Coastal Ocean Database and FOCOS Program
The NOAA Center for Ocean Analysis and Prediction (COAP) was recently formed in Monterey to support collection, distribution, and analysis of marine data for application to coastal ocean...

HF Radar Ocean Surface Mapping in Monterey Bay as a Prototype for California Coastal Environmental Monitoring and Governance
A network of coastal HF radars is being established to provide real-time coverage of ocean surface currents, onshore waves, and ultimately wind fields over Monterey Bay. Data products...

Gas Transfer Velocities and Radar Backscatter from the Water Surface
Gas transfer velocities of sulfur hexafluoride, methane, and nitrous oxide were determined in two different wind-wave tanks and related to friction velocity and radar backscatter from...

Subsurface Pavement Structure Inventory Using Ground Penetrating Radar and a Bore Hole Camera
The Pavement Management System (PMS) is now a necessary pavement evaluation tool. The PMS data base has been historically fed with surface inspection data, but increasing demands for accurate...

Remote Sensing and the Coastal Management in Brazil
This paper intends to demonstrate the possibility of employing remote sensing techniques in the Brazilian Coastal Management Program (Programa Brasileiro de Gerenciamento Costeiro). It...

NEXRAD Input to Real-Time Reservoir Regulation
The Corps of Engineers has a need for radar information to enhance rain gauge measurements in determining average rainfall over a particular basin for hydrological forecast models used...

Computer-Aided Structural Design of a Lunar Radio Telescope

Application of Remote Sensing to Flood Forecasting
Forecasting flood flows caused by severe rainfall events relies heavily on a knowledge of the surface characteristics of a watershed and precipitation inputs. This information can be obtained...

Remote Sensing of Rainfall with NEXRAD
In utilizing the Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) for remote sensing of rainfall, three stages of precipitation processing have been developed by the National Weather Service's...

A Multi-Level Contour Method for Tracking and Forecasting Rain Fields of Severe Storms by Weather Radars
A new automated method is developed in order to track and predict in short-term (15 min-1 hr lead times) the evolution of rain fields in time and space, as observed by weather radars....

Remotely Sensed Input Data for Real-Time Flood Forecasting
The WATFLOOD flood forecasting system has been developed to use a variety of remotely sensed data, namely weather radar for precipitation, Landsat MSS imagery for land cover classification,...

Results from Three Rain/Snow Enhancement Cloud Seeding Programs in the Southern Sierra Range of California

Radar Rainfall Measurements and Runoff Forecasting
Rainfall varies in intensity and depth over time and space. Weather radar systems can provide estimates of rainfall at points in space with nearly continuous coverage with respect to time....

Analysis on SLAR Images of Internal Waves

The Effect of Seeding on Convective Cells in West Texas
The effect on convective cells of randomized seeding for dynamic effects in the Southwest Cooperative Program is addressed. Analysis of three-dimensional, volume-scan, radar data using...

Utilization of Ground Penetrating Radar to Conduct Sediment Surveys of Frozen Reservoirs
The ground penetrating radar (GPR) system consisted of a control unit, antenna, recorder, a power supply on a sled towed by a snowmobile. A 120 Mhz antenna was utilized and gave excellent...

Measurements of Near-Survface Current in Inlets and Bays with Synthetic Aperture Radar
Synthetic Aperture Radar, SAR, provides images of land and ocean surfaces irrespective of solar illumination, and practically under all weather conditions. Developed originally for land...
