NOAA's Science on a Sphere Celebrates 10 Years

NOAA's Science on a Sphere Celebrates 10 Years

Technology Transfer Success Story

Researchers at NOAA developed Science On a Sphere® as an educational tool to help illustrate Earth System science to people of all ages. Animated images of atmospheric storms, climate change, and ocean temperature can be shown on the sphere, which is used to explain what are sometimes complex environmental processes, in a way that is simultaneously intuitive and captivating.

NOAA Researchers and Partners Document Rise in Great Lakes Water Levels

NOAA Researchers and Partners Document Rise in Great Lakes Water Levels

Levels expected to stay above-average through winter and spring of 2015

Scientists at the Army Corps of Engineers, Environment Canada, and NOAA recently documented a record-setting surge in water levels on Lakes Superior and Michigan-Huron that began in January 2013, and has continued through November 2014. The United States and Canadian federal agencies expect water levels to stay near or above average on all of the Great Lakes over the next six months.

Multiple- Radar, Multiple Sensor System Now Operational

Multiple- Radar, Multiple Sensor System Now Operational

System Developed at the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory Transferred to the National Weather Service

The Multiple Radar Multiple Sensor (MRMS) system combines data streams from multiple radars, satellites, surface observations, upper air observations, lightning reports, rain gauges and numerical weather prediction models to produce a suite of decision-support products every two minutes. Because it provides better depictions of high-impact weather events such as heavy rain, snow, hail, tornadoes, and other threats, forecasters can quickly diagnose severe weather and issue more accurate and earlier forecasts and warnings.

Researchers at NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory designed the MRMS system to improve decision making within NOAA and other agencies – marking another NOAA research to operations success. Implementation of the system into NWS operations was funded in part by the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013

NOAA Announces Novel Feeder for Juvenile and Larval Fishes

NOAA Announces Novel Feeder for Juvenile and Larval Fishes

NOAA Fisheries researchers have developed a fish feeder that allows fish farmers to automatically feed young fish on a recurrent basis while protecting the feed from oxidation and clumping. The patent-pending Microparticulate Feeder for Larval and Juvenile Fish was developed at NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, Washington and is now available for licensing by a qualified U.S. company.
