Radar Simulator to Aid Characterization of Scattering Debris Particles in Tornadoes

first_imgA team of researchers from University of Oklahoma’s Advanced Radar Research Center have jointly developed the world’s first numerical polarimetric radar simulator. The simulator will be used to study and characterize scattering mechanisms of debris particles in tornadoes.Scattering debris from a tornado is known to cause most of the damages. A tornado’s debris characteristics are generally poorly understood even though the upgradation of the radar network to a dual polarimetric radar offers potentially valuable capabilities for improving tornado warnings and now-casting. According to the team these results are important for operational weather forecasters and emergency managers as an improved understanding of what weather radars tell about tornado debris can help provide more accurate tornado warnings, and quickly direct emergency personnel to affected areas.Numerous controlled anechoic chamber measurements of tornadic debris were conducted at the Radar Innovations Laboratory on the OU Research Campus to determine the scattering characteristics of several debris types – leaves, shingles and boards. The simulator was developed by the team of Robert Palmer, D.J. Bodine, B.L. Cheong, C.J. Fulton, S.M. Torres, ARCC team, and the OU Schools of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Meteorology, to provide comparisons for actual polarimetric radar measurements.There have been many unanswered questions until now, related to tornado debris scattering, such as knowing how the size, concentration and shape of different debris types affect polarimetric variables. How the radar identifies the debris is equally as important. Orientation of debris makes a difference as well as how the debris falls through the atmosphere. The recent study will now help in understanding debris scattering characteristics and subsequently aid in the discovery of the relationship between debris characteristics, such as lofting and centrifuging, with tornado dynamics.OU team members were responsible for various aspects of this study. Coordination of damage surveys and collection of debris samples were led by D.J. Bodine. Field experiments were designed by team members in collaboration with Howard Bluestein from OU School of Meteorology. The electromagnetic simulations and anechoic chamber experiments were led by C.J. Fulton. The signal processing algorithms were developed by S.M. Torres and his team. B.L. Cheong was in the lead of the simulation development team.The study, “SimRadar: A Polarimetric Radar Time-Series Simulator for Tornadic Debris Studies,” will be published in the May issue of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing. The work is supported by the National Science Foundation.last_img read more

Jones led all Argonaut selections with her 3.83 GPA, followed by Codner’s 3.64 GPA.  First time selections include midfielder Marcela Franco (Sao Paulo, Brazil/Colegio Visconde de Porto Seguro) and defender Kaley Morris (Gulf Breeze, Fla./Gulf Breeze HS).  All-GSC first team selection Rafael Segal (Rishon Lezion, Israel/Mercer County CC) represented the men’s soccer team with his 3.33 GPA in International Relations.Sophomore Andrew Maedel (Orange Park, Fla./Ridgeview HS) earned the selection for the men’s cross country team, sporting a 3.52 GPA in Business Administration.  Maedel was the top UWF runner at three different meets in the 2008 season, including a 23rd place finish at the GSC Championships, leading the Argos to a 5th place team finish.  The sophomore was one of two underclassmen selected to the All-Academic Team for men’s cross country.Senior Jerica Carter (Gainesville, Fla./Gainesville HS) of the UWF volleyball team rounds out her four year career at West Florida with a GSC All-Academic Team selection, representing the East Division. Carter, an Elementary Education major, holds a 3.70 GPA after playing a vital role in the success of West Florida volleyball. The defensive specialist holds both the single-season (569) and career (1,706) records in digs.  This season, Carter was again the team’s dig leader, tallying 415 over the course 39 matches. She also provided consistency through her serving game, serving for as many as 14 consecutive points in a single set.  This accolade marks Carter’s first time on the All-Academic Team.The GSC Fall Academic Honor Roll was also announced, with 36 total UWF student-athletes making the grade.  Women’s soccer had 14 honor roll members, followed by volleyball with nine, men’s soccer with six, women’s cross country with four, and men’s cross country with three.  To qualify for the honor roll, student-athletes must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and must compete as a member of the team.Academic All-GSC Teams are selected by the Gulf South Conference Sports Information Directors (SIDs) and Faculty Athletic Representatives (FARs) in a joint vote. Nominees must have an overall grade point average (G.P.A.) of 3.20 or better on a 4.00 scale for their entire academic career and may not be freshmen or first-semester or quarter transfers. The student-athlete must be a significant contributor to the squad. Other factors include leadership, community service and extra-curricular activities. SIDs and FARs are not allowed to vote for their own student-athletes. The number of student-athletes selected in each sport is determined by the number of positions normally involved in the playing of that sport. Ties are not broken.GSC Fall All-Academic TeamsGSC Fall Academic Honor RollUWF Honor Roll MembersName, School YR GPA MajorMen’s Cross Country:Tyler Bowman, West Florida FR 3.54 Computer EngineeringAndrew Maedel, West Florida SO 3.52 Business AdministrationPeter Orgass, West Florida FR 3.08 Athletic TrainingWomen’s Cross Country:Shannon McDougall, West Florida SR 3.88 Comprehensive MarketingStacy Paton, West Florida FR 3.83 Criminal JusticeTaryn Pomerantz, West Florida FR 3.60 ArtRobin Thompson, West Florida FR 3.33 UndecidedMen’s Soccer:Curtis Brashear, West Florida SO 3.33 UndecidedDavid McNally, West Florida SO 3.02 Engineering PhysicsKian Mikhchi, West Florida FR 3.18 BusinessRafael Segal, West Florida SR 3.33 International RelationsMarquel Waldron, West Florida FR 3.15 AccountingPaul Willoughby, West Florida FR 3.75 Pre-MedWomen’s Soccer:Connie Boisseau, West Florida FR 3.43 UndecidedLauren Byrd, West Florida FR 3.71 Athletic TrainingSheka Codner, West Florida SR 3.64 Hospitality ManagementTori Fish, West Florida FR 3.18 UndecidedMarcela Franco, West Florida JR 3.59 Business FinanceCourtney Jones, West Florida JR 3.83 Athletic TrainingCourtney Kolloff, West Florida FR 3.00 UndecidedKristina Menendez, West Florida FR 3.77 UndecidedKaley Morris, West Florida JR 3.46 Pre-MedTaylor Murphy, West Florida JR 3.75 UndecidedNaila Owens, West Florida JR 3.24 PsychologyNoelle Robles, West Florida FR 3.70 UndecidedCholena Russo, West Florida FR 3.61 UndecidedJordan Stone, West Florida FR 3.43 Elementary EducationVolleyball:Valissia Brathwaite, West Florida JR 3.53 Physical EducationJerica Carter, West Florida SR 3.70 Elementary EducationPatricia Gandolfo, West Florida JR 3.10 AdvertisingMadeline Gonzalez, West Florida SR 3.16 Pre-Professional BiologyJessica Keroack, West Florida JR 3.92 PsychologyCalli Kovel, West Florida SR 3.72 Broadcast JournalismJamie Nichols, West Florida SO 3.50 MarketingMaddie Staub, West Florida FR 3.53 Athletic TrainingChelsea Wilhoite, West Florida SO 3.08 UndecidedPrint Friendly Version UWF Stars in GSC Fall All-Academic Teams Sharelast_img read more

Osanai claims Acom International

first_imgOMITAMA, Ibaraki Pref. – Mamoru Osanai saved par on the first playoff hole to win the Acom International on Sunday, his third tour victory and first in seven years.Osanai birdied the par-4 18th to force a playoff against Taichi Teshima, who shot the day’s best score with a 63 on the par-71 Ishioka Golf Club course but had to settle for a runnerup finish in this tournament for the second straight year. On the playoff hole, Teshima’s second shot missed the green and went into the deep rough. He then failed to chip his third shot close enough to make a par putt.It was the only bogey Teshima had on the day. Osanai, meanwhile, was safely on the green in two and just missed a birdie putt, leaving him with the simplest of putts to secure victory.

Guyana lands its first UCI Commissaire course

first_imgGuyana will once again make another stride in the world of cycling this time off the track with the inaugural International Cycling Union (UCI) Commissaire programme on the country’s soil. Commissaire is a generic term used in cycling for officials similar to that of an umpire or referee and most cycling events require two or more.President of the Guyana Cycling Federation, Horace Burrowes informed Stabroek Sport of the historic opportunity while pointing out that there is no one that is qualified at that level in Guyana.Burrowes explained, “UCI has a solidarity programme for a lot of different things and I see the need for having Commissaires in our country because we never had a programme or a Commissaire in our country… so I sat and filled it [the application] out and sent it before the deadline and they had the management committee meeting and they responded back to me very good stating that they granted us that Commissaire programme.” He added that he will be notified by the Head Commissaire when the programme will be held but said it should be by the end of the month.According to Burrowes 20 persons are expected to take part in the programme.Usually, when races are held locally Joseph Briton or William Howard functions in the capacity of race officials. When Guyana hosted the Junior Caribbean Cycling Championships last weekend, Commissaires Henry Bonafacio and Neves Viceate officiated.Guyana is earmarked to host the Senior Caribbean Cycling Championships next year.last_img read more
