David Warde

Scientist/Research Associate II

Mr. Warde conducts research and development of innovative signal-processing and adaptive sensing techniques to improve the quality, coverage, accuracy, and timeliness of meteorological products from weather radars. In addition, he is involved in the exploration and demonstration of unique capabilities offered by multifunction phased-array radar for weather observations; and the transfer of technology to existing radar systems in government, public, and private organizations. He contributes in national and international conferences and has over 40 conference and journal publications on advanced signal processing techniques for Doppler weather radar. He is co-inventor of automated ground clutter detection and filtering technique (CLEAN-APTM 2009) used on the National Weather Radar Test bed (NWRT) Phased Array Radar (PAR) at the NSSL, C-band weather radars throughout the U.S. and U.K., and tested for future operational use on the U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) S-band, Weather Surveillance Radar-1988 Doppler (WSR-88D) network.
