During the next decade, the National Weather Service (NWS) will be upgrading its meteorological instrumentation and data dissemination procedures. Because these changes will affect the operation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) air pollution models, the project has been undertaken to report on proposed changes and to recommend how to make optimal use of the new NWS data products. New instrumentation will include automated surface observation systems, next generation radar, and remote profilers. Data dissemination is being upgraded with an automated weather interactive processing system.
