Tool for Storm Analysis Using Multiple Data Sets
This note describes a web-based tool for storm analysis using multiple data sets developed for use in research of thunderstorms and forecasting applications. The tool was developed for users to monitor atmospheric changes along the path of storm systems. It demonstrates the use of the Thematic Real time Environmental Data Distributed Services (THREDDS) being developed by University Corporation for Atmospheric Research's UNIDATA. However, the data sets currently available with THREDDS are still somewhat limited. For this reason, the data used are from a variety of sources including the NOAA/Storm Prediction Center. The functionality of integrating and overlaying data from multiple sources (radar, satellite, lightning, model) in Lagrangian (moving) reference systems is not fully available to the research or operational community and will be demonstrated here.
