Abstract
The National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL), in collaboration with the NWS Office of Hydrologic Development, is currently establishing a national hydrometeorological test bed for the research and development of multi-sensor precipitation applications. A key component of the test bed is the National Mosaic and Quantitative precipitation estimation (NMQ) system. The NMQ will allow the creation and deployment of high-resolution quantitative precipitation estimation applications over North America for flash flood detection and prediction, fresh water resource management. The NMQ project will function as a community based research and development program that encompasses integration of multiple observational data streams, prototype and technique development environment, and real time verification and performance assessments on a national scale across small time and space resolutions. The NMQ system will capitalize on the rapid real-time communication of base-level WSR-88D radar data, satellite, surface, and NWP data, with the addition of Canadian radar data. The NMQ system will utilize two high performance Linux computer clusters connected to a large bandwidth data hub. One cluster will serve as a development and testing platform within a Joint Applications Development Environment (JADE) that will allow field personal, university researchers and NOAA scientists to develop and assess, in real time, new QPE and short-term QPF techniques. The second cluster (currently deployed) is considered to be a pseudo-operational environment providing QPE products with a minimum resolution of 1 km updated every 5-10 minutes seamlessly across the CONUS. The seminar will provide an overview of the objectives as well as the current capabilities, techniques and products being generated as part of the NMQ project. Specifically, NMQ products will be made available to the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) in real-time. NSSL and GLERL scientists have plans to collaborate to fine-tune precipitation estimates for application to Great Lakes forecast models.
