Abstract:

Beginning in 1979 Cornell University was funded for the purpose of analyzing the high time-resolution measurements provided by the Poker Flat VHF Doppler radar. The research emphasized applications of the technique to investigations of synoptic and mesoscale dynamics. The primary research areas included determining the characteristics of mesoscale turbulence in the range of periods from a few hours to several days and determining the extent to which the geostrophic balance condition is satisfied at time scales of a day or less.
