Abstract:

The objectives are to provide a testbed to develop and evaluate urgently needed state-of-the-art measurement capabilities and accurate now- and forecasting techniques. No one instrument or model is currently available with the capability to characterize propagation conditions on the necessary spatial and temporal scales thought to be typical of the coastal regions. Therefore, sensing information from a variety of sourcesinstruments are to be combined with high-resolution meteorological mesoscale models to provide a better description of the propagation environment than either sensing or models alone. COVAMP is divided into 2 tasks 1 Electrooptical Propagation Assessment in Coastal Environments EOPACE, and 2 Remote Sensing.
