CIRA Blended TPW and Anomaly Products

This 30 minute module presents the CIRA Blended TPW and associated TPW Anomaly products. SPoRT provides the experimental version of these products to its WFO partners at the request of CIRA to evaluate their application to forecasts of precipitation and flooding potential, to tracking tropical waves, for comparing with model initialization, and to monitoring low level moisture flow. Experts from CIRA, NESDIS/SAB as well as forecasters from SPoRT WFO partners have directly contributed to the content and operational case examples. This module is intended for the products directly created at CIRA, which continue to improve with additional and new TPW data sources, including microwave retrievals of TPW over land via MIRS.
