SPoRT Visit to Morristown NWS Office

SPoRT members Dr. Geoffrey Stano and Kristopher White made a visit to the Morristown NWS office to meet with forecasters and discuss recent and potential future collaborative projects.  The Morristown office is a particularly heavy user of the North Alabama Lightning Mapping Array (NALMA) and the SPoRT ADAS product.  They are interested in future modeling collaborations with SPoRT and in helping to evaluate RGB and VIIRS products after the office transitions to the AWIPS II platform.  It was a very productive visit and we look forward to future work together with their office and with some of the Emergency Management officials in their County Warning Area.  We would like to extend a special thanks to the Morristown office for their kind hospitality and taking the time to interact with us today!
