Working to improve flood prediction in maritime mountain ranges

The North Fork (NF) of the American River Basin, California, has been selected as NOAA's Hydrometeorological Testbed (HMT), where NOAA's top radar meteorologists are working with the Sacramento River Forecasting Center on river forecasting issues associated with western mountain watersheds. HMT focuses on intensive measurement and modeling of the meteorological characteristics of land-falling storms.
