This website is designed to give you more insight into the systems that are apart of the severe weather group here at UAHuntsville. Currently we operate four main platforms; the MIPS, MAX, ARMOR, and the NOWCASTR. Each platform is covered in greater detail throughout this site, as well as access to real time data from the MIPS, ARMOR, and NOWCASTR.
Each platform we operate takes part in different research projects throughout the year including hurricane landfalls, winter weather research, severe thunderstorms, and boundary layer studies. Many of this studies are performed in our own backyard as part of the ABIDE project.
The MIPS & MAX systems and personnel participate in many different types of research projects when they are not researching and publishing journal articles pertaining to measurements obtained by the MIPS & MAX. Some of the areas of research include:
