This research involves utilization of Phased Array Radar (PAR) observations to better understand atmospheric convective events and the utility of PAR in weather observations. This research includes all aspects of convection, including supercell thunderstorms, tornadoes, wind, hail, heavy precipitation, and other severe/winter hazards. We are primarily interested in using data collected by the Advanced Technology Demonstrator (ATD; a dual-pol PAR at NSSL) to explore new and novel ways to use radar meteorology to accomplish basic research and to improve the operational feasibility of PAR as a potential future national radar network. Related work focuses on exploring various aspects of radar algorithm development (including machine learning) with PAR data and developing new tools for PAR technology.
