Abstract:

An S-Band FMCW atmospheric radar was constructed, tested, and operated during the 1999 Cooperative Atmosphere Surface Exchange Study nocturnal boundary layer experiment CASES-99. There the radar system provided real-time guidance to research aircraft and other sensors in locating gradients and turbulent layers. We participated in three subsequent CASES workshops and submitted a journal paper describing the instrument and initial CASES results. Finally, we have performed coordinated observations with the TEP radar at Amherst during 2001 and 2002.
