CSTAR Virtual Workshop Scheduled for Friday November 16, 2012

Because of travel and funding complications, the CSTAR workshop has been rescheduled for Friday November 16, 2012. An outline of the agenda and time-frame of activities is shown below. Note that some of the agenda items and especially the approximate order and times are subject to minor changes, but in general the flow from TC Precipitation, to TC Initialization, to High Shear Low CAPE, lunch, TC Winds, High-Resolution Mid-Atlantic Ensemble, and the New CSTAR Proposal should remain constant.

Our goal for this workshop is to share activities and results since the last workshop,  outline plans for the next year, and discuss mechanisms to implement these research results into operations. The workshop will be shared via a GoToWebinar. Details on the GoToWebinar and conference call information will be released next week.
