2012 CSTAR Virtual Workshop

On 16 November 2012, a total of 45 meteorologists from the National Weather Service (NWS) as well as faculty and students from NC State University (NCSU) gathered via a virtual workshop to continue implementation of an ongoing Collaborative Science, Technology, and Applied Research (CSTAR) project. Despite travel limitations, 17 different offices or organizations participated virtually or in person with 13 attendees participating on site in Raleigh.  Participants were from 11 different WFOs, 1 RFC, 3 national centers, 1 regional headquarters, and NC State University with 14 offices or organizations having at least 2 participants.

The CSTAR project is entitled Improving Understanding and Prediction of Hazardous Weather in the Southeastern United States: Landfalling Tropical Cyclones and Convective Storms. Currently there are four primary focus areas including tropical cyclone (TC) and boundary precipitation, TC initialization, TC wind forecasts and high shear low CAPE severe weather.

The workshop’s goal was 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. Several action items have been identified and look for additional information on these in forthcoming blog posts.

The agenda and presentations from the workshop are available at the links below.  Audio versions of the workshop presentations are currently being edited and should be available soon.
