The development of mobile radar: Doppler on Wheels

The DOW radar facility has served the NSF community as part of the LAOF program since 2008. Prior to then, the DOWs operated as a de facto NSF-community resource, participating in many scientific and educational field programs not led by the DOW PI. The DOWs have been among the most widely used facilities, participating in over 30 field campaigns since VORTEX1. DOWs have been requested for several planned future field programs [e.g., PECAN (2015), SNOWIE (2015/2016), Victoria (2016), RELAMPAGO (2016) and OLYMPEX-NSF (2015)]. DOWs have been the most frequently requested and allocated LAOF facility for education and outreach, have deployed at 18 universities, and participated in extensive nationwide outreach tours impacting over 100,000 students.

Terri Wright has held the position of General Manager at WFIT since 1998.
