OWAQ Funded Researchers Present Findings at AGU and AMS Conferences

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

The Office of Weather and Air Quality (OWAQ) supports research conducted by NOAA scientists and partners that focuses on high-impact weather and air quality events including: hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, heavy precipitation, air pollution, and the social science behind how the public processes weather forecast information and products.  OWAQ uses its hallmark US Weather Research Program (USWRP) to fund research for the purposes of improving the understanding of high-impact weather events, sharpening the capabilities of numerical weather and air quality forecast models, bettering the understanding of atmospheric processes associated with high-impact weather and air quality events, and enhancing forecasting and analysis techniques for more accurate forecasts.  The ultimate goal is to transition this valuable research into NOAA operations to help save lives and reduce property damage. 

Researchers of OWAQ funded programs routinely present their findings at various scientific conferences.  The following is a list of presentations from the 2014 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Conference and 2015 American Meteorological Society (AMS) Conference:
