The Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), a member of the Verisk Insurance Solutions group at Verisk Analytics, and the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) announced an alliance today that supports the research and development of operational weather risk management solutions for insurance and other industries affected by severe storms.

The alliance combines NSSL’s research and development in weather radar technology with AER’s expertise in providing data-driven solutions that improve industry practices. As part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, NSSL will provide AER with access to high-resolution radar data across the continental United States. AER in turn provides critical insurance industry feedback and quality control assessments to NSSL for inclusion back into their radar algorithms.
