Collaborative Research between the National Weather Service and North Carolina State University

In recent years, collaborative research with North Carolina State University has expanded to include other National Weather Service Forecast Offices including those located at Greenville-Spartanburg and Columbia South Carolina, Wilmington and Newport North Carolina, along with Blacksburg and Wakefield Virginia.

The purpose of this collaboration page is to share applied research findings and training materials on forecast topics important to the Southeastern and Mid Atlantic regions of the country. Recognizing that the infusion of science into forecast operations is a collaborative process requiring time and revisions, we do not limit the posting of materials to completed works. Rather preliminary drafts are posted seeking ideas and comments from other operational forecasters. It is our desire to work together toward producing training materials which can provide a means to add value beyond current operational forecast practices.

We invite you to be a part of this science infusion collaborative process by sending your comments to Dr Gary Lackmann or Jonathan Blaes.
