Robin Tanamachi, Ph.D., assistant professor at Perdue University, used Skyler instead of a typical Doppler radar for this class. With Skyler, data refreshes every 30 seconds. This faster speed produces 10x more data about the atmosphere moments before a tornado forms. Skyler technology features a 3-D scanning, dual-polarization radar pencil beam that provides localized high-resolution weather data. Skyler could revolutionize tornado prediction, leading to radically improved extreme weather watches and warnings.
