Windswept – Research Awakens

Tracing the thread of research connections from the past to the present, and perhaps beyond. By Kenneth Rancourt

MWISP cloud imaging radar.

The points that I would like to address in particular in this article revolve around some of the people involved in the Observatory in earlier times, the links between the Observatory and other research establishments, and the programs that have been developed, based in part on those links, to move us forward to the year 2000, and beyond.

A key to the future is found in a number of strategic relationships that the Observatory is building. We have already noted that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is funding AIRMAP, GroundWinds, and the Weather Discovery Center. But equally important, NOAA officials have repeatedly shown deep interest in utilizing the summit's unique climate and facilities to increase understanding of various atmospheric phenomena, and doing so in ways that enhance the Observatory's long-term capabilities. The Federal Aviation Administration has likewise shown remarkable creativity in designing thoughtful projects to make aviation safer through the study of such serious problems as in-flight icing and air turbulence.
