UAS Weather Technology Forum
The goal of this workshop is to highlight the state-of-art in UAS/drone research and development in meteorology and atmospheric science, including platforms, diagnostics, instrumentation, and logistics. Participants will discuss various ways that UAS can be used to improve observations leading to better forecasts and warning, as well as how UAS data can be used for other scientific studies and applications, including improving severe weather response and better understanding of climate change impacts. The goal is to identify how UAS data can be acquired and utilized in the atmospheric science community, to identify impediments in their use, and highlighting what can be done to overcome current and future issues in their implementation. The symposium will culminate with a workshop setting to discuss development of a national center on UAS in Weather. Results from the first two years of the NASA ULI WINDMAP program will be highlighted.
The event will be hosted on the OSU Tulsa campus in the OSU Helmerich Research Center. OSU Tulsa is located in the historic Greenwood district and is home to a number of attractions, including the Greenwood Cultural Center, the Bob Dylan Center, the Woody Guthrie Center, and home to a number of music venues highlighting Tulsa’s rich music heritage. Tulsa attractions include the Gathering Place, the Blue Dome District, and numerous museums such as the Philbrook and Gilcrease Museums and nearby casinos.
