The MRMS project is a joint initiative between the National Severe Storms Laboratory, Federal Aviation Administration,
National Weather Service/Office of Hydrologic Development, the Office of Climate, Water and Weather Services and the
University of Oklahoma Cooperative Institute in Mesoscale Meteorolgical Studies.
MRMS is an automated system that rapidly and intelligently integrates data from multiple radars and radar networks,
surface and upper air observations, and numerical weather prediction (NWP) models. It serves as an international
testbed for research, development, evaluation and science to operations infusion of high resolution 3D radar mosaic
for NWP model data assimilation and aviation applications. It also generates a suite of quantitative precipitation
estimation ("Q3") products for the monitoring and warnings of floods and flash floods and in support of comprehensive
hydrologic and ecosystem modeling.
