PHOTOS: Inside the ULM Doppler Radar

The University of Louisiana Monroe held a ribbon cutting to announce the full operation of its new Doppler radar system. 

The weather tracking system fills a void between current National Weather Service radar locations in Shrevport and Jackson, Mississippi.   The radar system was acquired by a $3 million dollar grant through the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.

Assistant Professor of Atmospheric Sciences Dr. Todd Murphy says the Doppler system is an invaluable resource during severe weather events affecting northeast Louisiana.
