This training session will build on data fusion methodologies from the Data Fusion section of the WOC Severe Course (updated in FY21). We will apply these data fusion concepts to a flash flood case. We highlight contrasting scenarios, one with a nearby radar and the other where the closest radar was unavailable due to a recent lightning strike. Data fusion techniques are utilized to learn how to blend all available data which can be applied to short-term forecast and warning operations of flash flood events.
NOAA/NWS students – to begin the training, use the web-based video, YouTube video, or audio playback options below (if present for this session). Certificates of completion for NOAA/NWS employees can be obtained by accessing the session via the Commerce Learning Center.
The Data Fusion section of the WOC Severe Track is a prerequisite to this training. Under the Data Fusion section, see the two “Practice and Applications from Multiple Data Sources” training sessions.
