W hile the observational study of mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) has been active since the 1940s (e.g., Newton 1950 and references within), until the Bow Echo and Mesoscale Convective Vortex Experiment (BAMEX) there were no studies designed to sample multiscale aspects of these systems throughout the majority of their life cycles.

Conventional transportation planning is often focused on improving movement (or mobility)—most often by the automobile. To the extent that accessibility, a well-known concept in the transportation planning field since the 1950s, has been measured or used in transportation planning, such measures have also been auto-based. Broadening the scope of(More)
Piscine reovirus (PRV) is a double stranded non-enveloped RNA virus detected in farmed and wild salmonids. This study examined the phylogenetic relationships among different PRV sequence types present in samples from salmonids in Western Canada and the US, including Alaska (US), British Columbia (Canada) and Washington State (US). Tissues testing positive(More)

During the International H2O Project (IHOP) the NOAA Forecast Systems Laboratory (FSL) in Boulder played a significant role in the planning and implementation of forecasting and nowcasting support. In part to aid the nowcasting and short-range forecasting efforts, FSL ran several configurations of the Rapid Update Cycle (RUC) model, the Mesoscale Model(More)
