Interactive Radar Workshop

The radar workshop is held at the beginning of the conference and lasts for about three hours. Attendees are split into approximately 25 small groups/teams. Each team will have its own laptop loaded with a small program to create/issue/expire polygon warnings using the Gibson Ridge Radar software. The GR radar software will be configured to poll archived radar data as if it were live. A three hour period from an archived severe weather event will be sped up into a 90 minute warning session. Instructions and situational awareness given beforehand.

Immediately following the warning session, we will review the event and teams will be provided statistics, such as POD, FAR, and CSI. Teams will be ranked accordingly with the members of the winning team will be awarded a prize. We hope to see you there!
