Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA WX) Donation
Quantity in Basket: None
The Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA WX) project is a multi-sector partnership dedicated to engineering revolutionary weather-sensing networks. The CASA WX project is setting up a network of eight radars, called the CASA DFW Urban Demonstration Network, in the North Central Texas region. The main purpose of the CASA WX project is to save lives and minimize injuries and economic losses due to severe weather.
The North Central Texas region is the fourth largest metropolitan statistical area in the nation and one of the most susceptible to severe weather. The area is located entirely in what is known to many as Tornado Alley and has a history of violent storms, which have caused tremendous damage including the loss of human life. The New York Times recently published a study naming the Dallas Fort Worth area as being the number one most vulnerable area in the country to natural disasters. High winds, hail, tornados, and flooding cause widespread damage every year; the ability to forecast and analyze these weather events is vital to keeping the public out of harm's way as severe weather strikes the region. For more information visit the CASA WX Website.
Your donation to the Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA WX) project will go toward installation and operation of a network of high-resolution radars in the North Central Texas Region.
