LDM 6.12.6 Released

Version 6.12.6 of the LDM has been released.

Besides supporting the new NOAAPORT channels (like version 6.12.5) this version understands how to handle HRRR and ESTOFS data-products that will soon be added to the NOAAPORT broadcast.

Support for two additional channels will be added for the GOES-R satellite sometime before it's launched (currently scheduled for the second quarter of 2016).

Additional information about this release is available on the LDM 6.12.6 page. You can find a link to the source download area on the main LDM page.

HIWPP Aims to Improve High Impact Weather Forecasts

HIWPP

The High Impact Weather Prediction Project (HIWPP) is a collaboration between a dozen or more organizations led by the NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) and the OAR/Office of Weather and Air Quality. Funded as part of the Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Supplemental Appropriations, the project aims to improve near term (from “now” to several weeks or months in the future) prediction of dangerous weather events including hurricanes, floods, and blizzards.

Rich Signell

Richard Signell of the United States Geological Survey has been awarded the 2014 Russell L. DeSouza Award by the Unidata Users Committee. The DeSouza Award honors “individuals whose energy, expertise, and active involvement enable the Unidata Program to better serve the geosciences.”

Dr. Signell is a research oceanographer at the US Geological Survey in Woods Hole, MA. He has been a tireless proponent of Unidata software tools for more than twenty years; in 1992 he co-authored a paper titled “NetCDF: A Public-Domain-Software Solution to Data-Access Problems for Numerical Modelers” for a conference of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Dr. Robert Hetland of Texas A&M University, who nominated Signell for the award, says “I believe that the general adoption of netCDF as the standard way to store numerical ocean model information is due to Rich's early efforts to promote netCDF.”
