Storm Prediction Center Severe Thunderstorm Forecasting Video Lecture Series
"We present a video lecture series on severe thunderstorm forecasting, a collaboration between the NOAA Storm Prediction Center, The University of Oklahoma, the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory, and the NOAA Warning Decision Training Division. This is based on a three-semester-hour graduate-level course offered at The University of Oklahoma about applications of meteorological theory to the forecasting of severe thunderstorms (Meteorology 5403/4403: Applications of Meteorological Theory to Severe-Thunderstorm Forecasting). This course is led by SPC forecasters Ariel Cohen and Richard Thompson, and University of Oklahoma faculty member Steven Cavallo. During each spring semester from 2015 to 2017, this course has provided an opportunity to bridge the academic and operational disciplines of meteorology, allowing students to learn from experienced forecasters who have performed research on a variety of topics. During spring 2017, many lectures comprising Meteorology 5403/4403 and other related lectures relevant to severe thunderstorm forecasting were recorded. YouTube links to these recordings and accompanying descriptions are provided below as an educational resource. "

Home | International Cloud Atlas
"Welcome to the official site of the World Meteorological Organization’s (WMO) International Cloud Atlas. This Atlas describes the classification system for clouds and meteorological phenomena used by all WMO Members. The classifications also describe meteorological meteors other than clouds – hydrometeors, lithometeors, photometeors, and electrometeors."

Water Data Portal
"The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) has been doing research on water for the last 30 years. Being a non-profit research organization all the research outputs and data used for the research are shared with researchers across the globe as a global public goods (GPGs). The Water Data Portal (WDP), following "one-stop shop" approach, provides access to a large amount of data related to water and agriculture. WDP contains meteorological, hydrological, socio-economic, spatial data layer, satellite images as well as hydrological model setups. The data in the WDP, both spatial & non-spatial, are supported by the standardized metadata and are available for download by user including academia, scientists, researchers and decision makers. However, access is provided in compliance with copyrights, intellectual property rights and data agreements with our partners."

"Doppler weather radar imaging enabled the rapid recovery of the Sutter’s Mill meteorite after a rare 4-kiloton of TNT–equivalent asteroid impact over the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in northern California. The recovered meteorites survived a record high-speed entry of 28.6 kilometers per second from an orbit close to that of Jupiter-family comets (Tisserand’s parameter = 2.8 ± 0.3). Sutter’s Mill is a regolith breccia composed of CM (Mighei)–type carbonaceous chondrite and highly reduced xenolithic materials. It exhibits considerable diversity of mineralogy, petrography, and isotope and organic chemistry, resulting from a complex formation history of the parent body surface. That diversity is quickly masked by alteration once in the terrestrial environment but will need to be considered when samples returned by missions to C-class asteroids are interpreted."

Guest Commentary: Climate spin is rampant - The Denver Post
"Along with colleagues around the world, I've been studying climate change and disasters for almost 20 years, and we just had a scientific paper accepted for publication this week on damage from U.S. tornadoes since 1950. What we found may surprise you: Over the past six decades, tornado damage has declined after accounting for development that has put more property into harm's way. Researchers have similar conclusions for other phenomena around the world, ranging from typhoons in China, bushfires in Australia, and windstorms in Europe. After adjusting for patterns of development, over the long-term there is no climate change signal — no "footprint" — of increasing damage from extreme events either globally or in particular regions."

Does All Science Need to be Preserved? Do We Need to Save Every Last Data Point? « The Scholarly Kitchen
"There are at present few best practices for managing and curating data. Libraries have developed, over the decades, processes and plans for how to curate an information collection and to “de-accession” (i.e., discard) unwanted or unnecessary content. At this stage in the development of an infrastructure for data management, there is no good understanding of how to curate a data collection. This problem is compounded by the fact that we are generating far more data than we have capacity to store or analyze effectively."

STAR CITY SCENE • View topic - Non-meteorologist's guide to meteorology (for NERDS!!!!!!)
Why do they call it meteorology if it's the study of the atmosphere and not the study of space rocks? Because 'meteor' refers to things in the atmosphere called hydrometeors (water vapor, ice, hail) and lithometeors (non-water things - dust, ash, sand) and how they change forms and interact in different ways to rain on your golf game. It's an ungodly communistic Frankenstein-like amalgamation of math, chemistry, physics, geography, intuition, experience, and gut feelings.

NCAR / SIP The Societal Impacts Program
"The Collaborative Program on the Societal Impacts and Economic Benefits of Weather Information (SIP), better known as the Societal Impacts Program (SIP), focuses on improving societal gains from weather forecasting by infusing social science research, methods, and capabilities into the Weather Enterprise. SIP serves as a focal point for developing and supporting a closer relationship between weather researchers, operational forecasters, relevant end users, and social scientists concerned with the impacts of weather and weather information on society. Program activities include primary research, outreach and education, the Weather and Society*Integrated Studies (WAS*IS) program, and development and support for the weather societal-impacts community."

Anthropogenic greenhouse gas contribution to flood risk in England and Wales in autumn 2000 : Nature : Nature Publishing Group
"Here we present a multi-step, physically based ‘probabilistic event attribution’ framework showing that it is very likely that global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions substantially increased the risk of flood occurrence in England and Wales in autumn 2000."

Human contribution to more-intense precipitation extremes : Nature : Nature Publishing Group
"Here we show that human-induced increases in greenhouse gases have contributed to the observed intensification of heavy precipitation events found over approximately two-thirds of data-covered parts of Northern Hemisphere land areas. These results are based on a comparison of observed and multi-model simulated changes in extreme precipitation over the latter half of the twentieth century analysed with an optimal fingerprinting technique. Changes in extreme precipitation projected by models, and thus the impacts of future changes in extreme precipitation, may be underestimated because models seem to underestimate the observed increase in heavy precipitation with warming."

Citizen Weather Observer Program
The Citizen Weather Observer Program (CWOP) is a public-private partnership with three main goals: 1) to collect weather data contributed by citizens; 2) to make these data available for weather services and homeland security; and 3) to provide feedback to the data contributors so that they have the tools to check and improve their data quality. In fact, the web address, wxqa.com, stands for weather quality assurance.
