  • Patent number: 6850184
    Abstract: A system and method to build a radar reflectivity forecast mosaic from a collection of radar sites. The radar data from multiple radar sites is processed to create movement information for all of the precipitation areas. The movement information and precipitation areas are then mosaicked in a common geographical framework to create forecasted radar reflectivity mosaics. By using the reflectivity information and movement information from multiple radars, a wider scale, more coherent radar forecast can be generated.

  • Patent number: 6562904
    Abstract: The residual chlorine content of a polyolefin-substituted carboxylic acylating agent formed by a chlorine-assisted reaction of a polyolefin and an &agr;,&bgr;-unsaturated carboxylic reactant can be reduced by heating the polyolefin-substituted carboxylic acylating agent having a residual chlorine content in the presence of an &agr;,&bgr;-unsaturated carboxylic reactant, optionally in the further presence of a sulfonic acid. Residual chlorine content can be further reduced by using, in the reaction of the polyolefin &agr;,&bgr;-unsaturated carboxylic reactant, a high speed mixer provided with a dual pitch blade.
