Convection on a Computer Screen
The Power of Technology
Scientists at NOAA use special techniques and instruments to look at convection on a computer screen. They study radar images and create computer models of convection to gather clues about how convection affects weather and climate. The use of technology helps us gain a better understanding of convection.
