OU to be partner in $40 million engineering research center

Ground-breaking sensing technology that will improve forecasts and warnings of such weather hazards as tornadoes and flash floods will be the focus of a new $40 million research center in which the University of Oklahoma is a primary partner, the National Science Foundation announced Oct. 1.

Funded in part with a five-year, $17 million grant from the National Science Foundation, the Engineering Research Center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere - one of only four new ERCs - is expected to increase the warning time for tornadoes, flash floods and other severe weather disturbances, and provide more accurate forecasts than ever before. The center will be based at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. More on OU weather research.
