Hydrometeorological Test Bed at WPC
The Hydrometeorological Testbed (HMT) at the Weather Prediction Center (WPC) was established by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in order to accelerate the assessment and implementation of new technology, research results, and other scientific advancements from the research and development communities to enhance WPC products and services. The HMT-WPC is designed to enhance and extend forecast skill for high-impact weather, especially precipitation, by facilitating interactions among researchers, operational forecasters, and users. Ultimately, project proposals related to this mission will be solicited from both the meteorological and hydrological communities.
Please note that the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center (HPC) changed its name to the Weather Prediction Center (WPC) on March 5, 2013.
