Extreme Weather Team
Implementation of Upper-Air Profiler
The Extreme Weather Team piloted a sodar, a type of upper-air profiler, to measure winds 80–600 meters above ground level.
We found that strategically located sodar could help predict the onset of surface winds several hours in advance, enabling officials to take critical mitigation measures.
