Economy, social structure, and civic services. It is reasonable that the federal government continue to provide a service that benefits so many of its citizens. S. citizens. It is, therefore, necessary that these services be of uniformly high quality. 2. The NWS and its parent organization NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) will retain responsibility for an observational and data collection infrastructure that includes satellite, radar, surface, and upper air observing systems and the government applications from this infrastructure.

Downward-looking remote sensors that can measure soil moisture or snow pack water content from commercial aircraft may also become practical. They will become more important as the capabilities evolve for modeling coupled atmosphere-surface processes. Radar Systems Ground-based and airborne Doppler radars provide a wide range of observations. These systems include the Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) systems and wind profilers, which have demonstrated their ability to detect localized phenomena, such as downbursts near airports and mesoscale cyclonic rotations, which are precursors to the development of tornadoes.

The evolution of atmospheric phenomena depends on the state of the entire, coupled system of atmosphere, oceans, ice, and land, including the fundamental quantities needed to define that state at a given time. By contrast, some of the events most critical to human affairs in the near term—severe local storms and their consequences, such as tornadoes and lowlevel wind shear—are extremely localized in space and time. They require extremely detailed observations for analysis and prediction in near real time.
