AtmosNews: MPEX field project, carbon dioxide milestone

Targeting severe storm prediction
To help better predict where spring thunderstorms will rip across Colorado’s Front Range and the adjacent Great Plains, researchers have launched a major field project with the NSF/NCAR Gulfstream V aircraft and fine-grained computer simulations. The month-long Mesoscale Predictability Experiment (MPEX) includes participants from NCAR, NOAA, and several universities. more>
