Abstract:

Over the past year, we have concentrated on analysis of FMCW radar data obtained during the CASES99 experiment. Collected data have been quality controlled and processed to 5 second averaged profiles. Both radar images GIFs and data NetCDF format were provided to the NCAR JOSS data archive in May 2000. Since then, we have been working with other CASES investigators in studying particular events in various lOPs. Preliminary results were reported in two conferences, IGARSS 2000 and the AMS Boundary Layers and Turbulence Symposium. We are currently coauthoring two manuscripts with other CASES investigators that will.be submitted for publication in 2001.
