    Detecting Roost Rings on Doppler Radar

    As birds leave their 'roost'… the doppler radar beam detects them up until they are out of reach. These rings are called roost rings.As birds leave their 'roost'… the doppler radar beam detects them up until they are out of reach. These rings are called roost rings.
    The radar signature on the left… known as a "roost ring”… occurs as birds leave their roost and fly into the air. The roost ring expands until the birds begin foraging after dispersing. Often… just before sunrise…you might notice a curious doughnut pattern has appear over locations on doppler radar imagery. This roost ring occurs when the radar beam detects thousands of birds simultaneously taking off.

    Each and every day… waves move sand back and forth… onto and away from beaches. The thin ribbon of sandy barrier islands and beaches along our coastline shifts constantly… especially during hurricanes… nor’easters and other extreme storms.How vulnerable is your favorite beach if a hurricane like Katrina... Ike or Sandy paid a visit? What did your beach at Tybee or Hilton Head look like 50… 100 or 150 years ago?

  • GPM Satellite Sees First Atlantic Hurricane

    GPM Satellite Sees First Atlantic Hurricane

    The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory flew over Hurricane Arthur five times earlier this month… between July 1 and July 5. Arthur was the first tropical cyclone of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season. GPM began its prime mission on May 29… just in time for the hurricane season. The five GPM passes over Arthur are the first time a precipitation-measuring satellite has been able to follow a hurricane through its full life cycle.
