Weather Hazard Information Project (WHIP) involves the utilization of platforms such as television (DOSTv) and a web portal (a), which display real-time satellite, Doppler radar
, data to empower LGUs and communities to prepare against extreme natural hazards.
Its maintenance free solid state micro Doppler radars
are deployed in 33 countries to deliver round the clock all-weather protection along borders, for coastal facilities, at military bases, and to guard critical national infrastructure such as airports, oil and gas facilities and palaces.
There would be Doppler radars
, automated surface stations, next-generation sounding systems, lidars, acoustic sounders, and new airborne instruments, including an airborne Doppler radar
Science Secretary Mario Montejo said the Doppler radar
and synoptic station at the Western Visayas Agricultural Research Center in Jaro district in Iloilo would help the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) provide more accurate weather data for the Visayas that would ensure the safety of communities from typhoons and floods.
A lightning sensor, he said, costs only 1 percent of the cost of a Doppler radar
A satellite photograph and a Doppler Radar
image do not represent temperature.
Coupled with real time information provided by our Doppler radars
on the amount of rains we can expect, we are now better equipped to map out courses of action and strategies whenever there is a serious weather even," Aquino said.
The National Weather Service has already begun installing this "dual-polarization radar" upgrade to Doppler radar
systems across the United States.
Different human body parts create unique images, or "signatures," on Doppler radar
images showed that a storm was producing a great deal of heavy snow over the incident location, though the storm did not actually reach JFK Airport.
The two institutes set up the doppler radars
in Tokyo's Bunkyo Ward, Yokosuka and Ebina in Kanagawa Prefecture, Kisarazu, Chiba Prefecture, and Hanyu, Saitama Prefecture, in collaboration with the National Defense Academy of Japan and Chuo University.
are working to develop a polarimetric NEXRAD Doppler radar
