Most people are familiar with Doppler radar from television newscasts because it shows where it is raining. However, Doppler radar, also known as Weather Surveillance Radar — 1988 (WSR-88D), is much more valuable to experienced meteorologists because it can confirm whether a tornado is on the ground, whether hail is present in a thunderstorm, where smoke and chemical plumes from large fires are spreading, and other potentially dangerous weather events.
