Collaborative Science, Technology, and Applied Research Program (CSTAR)
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has had a long history of entering into cooperative activities with colleges and universities. As the Modernization and Associated Restructuring (MAR) of the National Weather Service (NWS) progresses, the number and types of interactions have been growing steadily. As a result, the Collaborative Science, Technology, and Applied Research (CSTAR) program has been established by the Office of Meteorology to bring the current variety of NWS-supported collaborative activities with the academic community into a structured program and to create a cost-effective transition from basic and applied research to operations and services. This service-science linkage provides a foundation for the ongoing modernization of the NWS.
The benefits derived from collaborative research activities initiated in CSTAR are numerous. NWS and university resources are leveraged, which will accelerate application of new science to operational forecasting. Collaborative research enables mutual sharing of information and data that may have been previously unavailable. Numerous opportunities for diverse partnerships are created, and these opportunities contribute to the scientific education of current and future workforce.
All CSTAR efforts are geared toward enhancing scientific interactions leading to a transfer of improved scientific understanding and technological advancements into the total forecast system. These efforts support the United States Weather Research Program's (USWRP's) goal of advancing weather observing capabilities and fundamental understanding of weather and using this understanding to improve numerical weather prediction and enhance weather services provided to the Nation. In close association with the USWRP, the NWS has established a set of science priorities in support of the Advance Short-Term Forecast and Warning Services element of the NOAA Strategic Plan around which research in the CSTAR program is currently focused. These NWS Science Priorities are as follows:

    WMO Contribution Multilateral Activities Meeting Australia's international obligations Bilateral Activities OBJECTIVE To meet Australia's international obligations, advance Australia's interests and support the operations and services of the Bureau through participation in international meteorology. OUTPUT Effective Australian participation in the various constituent bodies, programs and activities of the World Meteorological Organization including the provision of data, products and services to overseas National Meteorological Services and overseas user communities; along with participation in the international meteorological and related programs of other international organisations; and bilateral cooperation with other advanced countries and bilateral cooperation with, and assistance to, developing country National Meteorological Services in the South West Pacific. OUTCOME International cooperation and goodwill including the benefits of global meteorological cooperation under the Convention of the World Meteorological Organization and related international meteorological treaties and agreements. Meteorology is one of the most inherently international of all fields of science and human endeavour and international cooperation plays a vital role in the operation of the Bureau, enabling it to draw on, and benefit from, scientific, technological and operational developments and expertise in other countries while contributing, within its own capability, to the effectiveness of the total international effort from which all countries benefit. This helps to ensure that the Australian community receives the best services possible within the limitations of available resources and the international state of the art in meteorological science and technology.

    Mailbase lists
    electronic discussion lists for the UK higher education and research community. However for those of you new to academia or the wonders of electronic communication we have compiled a list of discussion groups that should be of some relevance to geographers. Mailbase discussion lists allow you to talk with other academics via electronic mail, to collaborate on projects, announce conferences, arrange meetings, or just keep in touch with colleagues in your subject area. Once established they work by someone sending an email message to the list which is then sent to all list members. They are very simple to use, all you need is email. The administration of the list is carried out by the list owner (who will also be able to provide more information about the remit of the list) and supported by the mailbase service which is located at the University of Newcastle. You can find out more about Mailbase at . It is worth noting that some of the lists appear to have similar remits, a brief glance through the list archives should help you to determine which list will be of most relevance to you. List archives can be accessed via: This page provides a search device, type in any of the list names below and you will have access to information about the list and its archives.

  • Meteorology: Does Weather Happen Randomly? - Richard Levine, Tefft Middle School, Streamwood, IL
    Does weather happen randomly or are there patterns that can be recognized? If there are patterns, what are they and how can we use them? Scientific skills involved are: collecting, recording and analyzing data; thinking creatively and critically, and communicating results. Students use graphs and spreadsheets to do investigations on the relation between altitude and temperature, latitude and temperature, the direction weather moves, atmospheric readings, the relation between dewpoint temperature and actual air temperature as a storm approaches, and atmospheric readings as a line of storms approaches and departs a reporting station, predicting the weather. more>>

    COMET Postdoctoral Fellows
    As part of their effort to support partnerships among university researchers and forecasters at NWS offices, NCAR's Cooperative Program for Operational Meteorology, Education and Training (COMET) provides postdoctoral fellowships for a period of one to two years. While involved in these fellowships, the participants will broaden their understanding of issues related to operational forecasting, and they can contribute to solving meteorological problems by applying results of their applied research. NWS Southern Region offices recently hosted two individuals as part of COMET's postdoctoral program: At NWSFO Lubbock Dr. Arthur L. (Tim) Doggett, IV (Texas Tech University) worked on convective initiation along the dryline and investigating the role of symmetric instability in elevated convection. He used the Local Analysis and Prediction (LAPS) model in his research at the NWSFO. At NWSO Tallahassee Dr. Chris Herbster (Florida State University) showed how a well established mesoscale model can be used to enhance local forecasts for a coastal environment, including the effects of the seabreeze in the initiation of convection and distribution of showers.

    Operation Pathfinder:
    "Precision Approach" - An Initiative to Develop and Test an Accurate and Efficient Aviation Forecast System Leaders: Tom Hicks (ZFW) and Steve.Amburn (TSA) Description: This is one of the most ambitious, yet vital, initiatives to the aviation program enhancement effort. In the very near future, changing customer requirements (e.g, anticipated Traffic Management Unit Requirements Document) will make it necessary for both automation and collaboration among all organizational elements (the AWC, CWSUs, WFOs, and the Spaceflight Meteorology Group [SMG]) to play key roles in producing what can be termed "ramp-to-ramp" aviation weather forecasts: ramp-to-terminal-to-departure zone-to-center airspace-to-approach zone-to-terminal-to-ramp.
    The result of the automation and collaboration process will be to generate forecasts that are consistent, accurate, timely, and tailored to the specific needs of the various aviation customers. While automation will be critical to the success of this effort, it will not eliminate the need for the aviation forecaster. Indeed his/her role may become more important, but likely will need to be redefined.
    A typical forecast scenario of the future might proceed as follows:
  • A resolute national grid of "aviation impact variables" is produced through automation and made available for forecaster review.
