Kent is involved with two major research efforts at CIWRO/NSSL, the NOAA Warn-on-Forecast (WoF) project and the Hazardous Weather Testbed – Spring Forecasting Experiment (HWT-SFE). His WoF-related research includes serving as a co-developer and real-time run manager of the NSSL WoF System (WoFS), a prototype, storm-scale, ensemble data assimilation system designed to improve the prediction of hazardous weather phenomena, such as thunderstorm rotation, hail, high winds, and flash flooding. He has a multi-faceted role in the HWT-SFE, including managing the real-time flow and the archive of the various numerical weather prediction model data used during the experiment and facilitating the various activities completed. He also manages the daily NSSL-WRF and NSSL-FV3 runs.
