DELTA: Detecting and Evaluating Low-level Tornado Attributes


DELTA (Detecting and Evaluating Low-level Tornado Attributes) is a NOAA campaign that takes many of the assets from the PERiLS campaigns to examine three overarching storm modes QLCSs (Quasi-Linear Convective Systems), supercells, and supercell/QLCS mixed mode in the southeastern United States. DELTA is a mobile campaign with mobile radars (NOXP, RaXPol, and two SMART-Rs, MAX, and SKYLER), mobile lidars (NSSL and ULM), mobile mesonets (NSSL), mobile soundings (NSSL, ULM, and UAH), UAS, UAH RaDAPS, and the Purdue PIPS systems. Additionally NOAA/PSL will operate several fixed wind and thermodynamic profiler sites.
