Title: Early Doppler Radar (circa 1975)
Concept: This dome houses the prototype of today's NEXRAD systrems
Detail: This huge dome housed the 30 foot dish of the experimental Doppler radar at the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman,Oklahoma. This was the prototype of the NEXRAD radars specifically designed to measure not only precipitation intensity, but also the motion of the air within the rain and snow clouds. In tests during the latter part of the 1970's, NSSL meteorologists, along with others, showed that Doppler radar had a great potential for detecting either tornadoes, or at least the rotary circulations within thunderstorm clouds that give birth to them. The Doppler radar, however, was more expensive and difficult to operate than conventional radar. It was not until the mid-1990s that testing was completed, and budgeting secured, allowing the deployment of over 100 NEXRADs which now blanket the US. Doppler is one of the key reasons for the continuing increases in tornado warning reliability and lead times.
