Abstract:

The long term goal of this project is to develop inversion approaches that enable the estimation of refractivity profiles and the associated uncertainty. Furthermore, we will develop methods for mapping the refractivity parameters and their associated uncertainty into propagation. The objective of this proposal is the development of parametric approaches for the inversion of radar clutter data to estimate atmospheric refractivity over land and sea. Refractivity inversion algorithms using land clutter with and without radar phase will be developed. Over the sea we will further develop our approaches to carry out estimation in time and space of the refractivity.
