Our Core Mission:
“Provide valuable hydrometeorological products and services to meet the complex needs of our clients seeking to determine the rarity of extreme weather events, quantify hydrologic risk, develop design criteria, optimize water supply operations, operate hydrologic models, and monitor precipitation in real-time while maximizing public safety through lasting, honest, and reliable business relationships.”
MetStat is a specialized meteorological consulting company in Fort Collins, Colorado, home of Colorado State University.
We are committed meteorological engineers and leaders in detailed precipitation analysis, real-time gauge-adjusted radar rainfall products, weather frequency analysis, weather event reconstructions, forensic meteorology, and the spatial interpolation of meteorological and climatological variables. For over 20 years, we have provided accurate, innovative, and detailed meteorological and hydrometeorological information to the private and public sectors. The technical expertise of MetStat and its partnering companies provides the comprehensive technical knowledge required to complete tasks effectively and efficiently. The MetStat team has over 100 years combined meteorological experience, multiple-degreed employees, and several organization affiliations that makes us highly qualified and capable of a wide variety of meteorological services.
MetStat has proven history of providing accurate, high-resolution data products to hydrologists for hydrologic model calibration and validation. In fact, MetStat is the U.S. leader in providing the necessary components (dew point climatologies, extreme rainfall analyses, depth-area-duration curves, sea surface temperature climatologies, and surface analysis) for Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) estimation. Our strong Geographical Information System (GIS) emphasis allows us to develop output compatible with our client needs. For 11 years, MetStat supported NOAA’s National Weather Service precipitation frequency Atlas 14 development and now supports hydrologic risk and probabilistic precipitation studies supporting infrastructure design, licensing and/or operations. MetStat has also developed the unique capability of translating near real-time gauge-adjusted radar precipitation into precipitation frequency estimates.
MetStat brings a new, innovative and powerful new tool to the industry (MetStorm) that provides an objective perspective of precipitation intensities for past events as well as in near real-time. Our comprehensive understanding of precipitation has allowed us to develop reliable techniques to blend weather radar data together with observed data to reconstruct weather events to support a wide variety of purposes, including legal, insurance, modeling and design. Given our extreme rainfall/precipitation specialty, we are on the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) extreme precipitation evaluation committee, which is responsible for assessing the validity of potentially new world record rainfall intensities. MetStat has provided data and analyses for several legal cases involving flooding and wind damage, as well as snow climatologies to support the structural design of buildings.
