TestBeds Linking Research and Forecasting

A new article written by Marty Ralph and colleagues was recently published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society focusing on the emergence of weather-related test beds. The paper provides a brief background on how these test beds successfully bridged the gap between research and forecasting operations; summarizes test bed origins, methods and selected accomplishments; and provides a perspective on the future of test beds. A personal use copy of the paper can be obtained here.
