July 1, 1988 to August 29, 1991
Project Location: 
Stapelton Airport, Denver Colorado
Project Description: 

Terminal Doppler Weather Radar Nowcasting Experiment was organized in association with the TDWR program to make forcasts of convective weather within 10km of Denver's Stapleton International Airport.  Results showed that forecast accuracy went beyond simple extrapolation to include instances of storm initiation and dissipation.  Necessary for this success was a Doppler radar that could detect boundary-layer convergencve lines and a prototype workstation that could combine and display mesoscale and synoptic scale data.
