MIPS on Exhibit - AMS Annual Meeting
The Mobile Integrated Profiling System (MIPS) is a unique ground-based remote sensing platform, which is used to study a variety of severe and hazardous weather phenomena by researchers in the Severe Weather Institute – Radar & Lightning Laboratories (SWIRLL) at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. The MIPS routinely participates in studies of land-falling hurricanes, winter cyclones, severe thunderstorms, lake effect snow, and tornadic environments. The new SWIRLL at UAH will build on the excellent collaborative severe weather and radar expertise already in place on campus and in the technology-driven region around Huntsville. These facilities are operated within the UAH’s Department of Atmospheric Science and Earth System Science Center, which are nationally recognized academic and research organizations. The faculty and students at UAH work closely with partners co-located in the National Space Science & Technology Center and Cummings Research Park, such as the National Weather Service, NASA Earth Sciences, Alabama State Climatologist, and Baron Services.
