Paper Abstract

In the 1990s, significantly powerful new instruments will be available for the observation, processing and analysis of environmental and meteorological events. The Next Generation Radar (NEXRAD), Atmospheric Profiler (PROFILER), and Vertical Atmospheric Sounder (VAS) will provide timely data to the environmental observer, analyst and forecaster. This data, after processing, will provide the opportunity to: * forecast for time and place at accuracies of less than an hour and locations less than one mile * provide timely tornado warnings before as opposed to during and after an event * continuously annd thoroughly meet the needs of the aircraft meteorlogist for severe weather prediction around airports * provide reliability beyond the capabilities of today's systems.1
