University of Tennessee Signs Memorandum of Agreement with Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Division of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Feb 21 17
University of Tennessee has signed a memorandum of agreement with the Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Air Resources Laboratory to advance collaborative research in atmospheric sciences. The agreement, signed February 15 at ATDD headquarters in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, will facilitate joint efforts to advance understanding of air pollution, atmospheric transport processes, and weather on a regional and national level. It will also create educational opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to collect scientific data, develop models and simulations, and transition research to applications and commercial use. The University of Tennessee continues to develop strategic collaborative opportunities with federal research and development partners, said David Millhorn, UT senior vice president and vice president for research and economic development. The agreement formalizes the working partnership between NOAA and UT and will open new avenues for research on how Earth's atmosphere affects society. Over the past two decades, ATDD and UT have partnered on joint air-surface exchange measurements, forest canopy studies, airborne remote sensing, and severe weather research.
NOAA Releases First GOES-16 Image from Harris Corporation-Built Imager, Ground System
Jan 24 17
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released the first image taken by Harris Corporation's Advanced Baseline Imager onboard their next-generation weather satellite. The image taken from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-16 (GOES-16) is of Earth's full western hemisphere with detailed cloud and water features. The Harris ABI, the main payload on the satellite, is a high-resolution digital camera with image resolution of one-tenth of a square mile, or four times better than current imagers. Additional filters, or spectral bands, on ABI will detect more information about volcanic ash, dust, clouds, winds, fires, rainfall rate, and hurricane intensity than previous generations of geostationary weather satellites. Critical information about severe weather events can come as fast as 30 seconds, five times faster than previous technology.
NOAA and Swift Bio Scientists Partner to Create DNA Libraries of Endangered Vaquita Porpoise
Aug 5 15
NOAA and Swift Bio Scientists Partnered to Create DNA Libraries of Endangered Vaquita Porpoise. As part of a larger conservation effort, researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have collaborated with Swift Biosciences to create DNA libraries for the critically endangered vaquita porpoise, a small porpoise species that can only be found in the northern Gulf of California.
