    The changes in clear-sky and all-sky top of the atmosphere aerosol direct radiative effect (DRE) and cloud radiative effect (CRE) using CERES derived fluxes were found to be ~7?10% different during weekends with respect to weekly means. Similarly, the change in longwave cloud radiative effect is double that of the shortwave CRE. Three radar wind profilers and the University of Wyoming King Air research aircraft measurements were used in their work. A time–height cross-section of vertical air velocity and horizontal winds are shown in Figure 16(a)–(c). They found out that vertical air velocity sign changes over this site 2 by: 8.

    Extremely cold air comes every winter to at least part of the United States and affects millions of people. Arctic air and brisk winds can lead to dangerously cold wind chill values, resulting in frostbite and hypothermia. About 63% of weather-related deaths in the U.S. result from exposure to excessive cold and/or hypothermia. 19th Coherent Laser Radar Conference, CLRC 18thst June , Okinawa, Japan Conference overview The 19th conference on coherent laser radar technology and applications is the latest in a series beginning in , which provides a biannual forum for the exchange ofFile Size: 45MB.

Since the 's, radar meteorologists have studied clear-air turbulence as a natural, meteorological phenom-enon (ref. In recent years, some of the theory devel-oped for meteorology has been applied to the study of aircraft wake vortices.

For example, Tatarski. Get this from a library. Measured changes in C-band radar reflectivity of clear air caused by aircraft wake vortices.

[Anne I Mackenzie; Langley Research Center.]. Anne I. Mackenzie has written: 'Measured changes in C-band radar reflectivity of clear air caused by aircraft wake vortices' -- subject(s): Aircraft wakes, Microwave devices, Microwave frequencies. However, the radar monitoring of wake vortices in clear air for operational application is far from being effective.

First, the radar reflectivity of wake vortices in clear air is extremely low and extremely high transmitted powers should be envisaged, leading thus to high infrastructural by: The first observational and theoretical efforts on ground-based radar detection of wakes were in the context of clear atic tests by Gilson () showed that the wake of a C-5A aircraft could be detected by radars having 2–7 MW of peak power at frequencies from to GHz, with no return at 35 GHz.

Shariff and Wray () analyzed the reflectivity in Gilson’s test using a Cited by: 2. To detect wake vortices in all weather conditions, lidar and radar sensors are complementary.

It is important to determine accurately the limitations of the radar detection in clear air and to.

Roeder and Todd M. McNamara. EXAMPLE: What is the frequency of a radar with a 3 centimeter wavelength. Because our wavelength is centimetric; we must insert the speed of light in centimeters/sec; thus: (3 x 10 10 cm/sec divided by 3 cm) = 10, Hz = 10, MHz. The frequency of a 3cm radar is approximat MHz.

ROI, Cressman () weighting • Use Cape WINDS and 45WS-WSR composite Z h to identify cell responsible for threshold-level winds.

During clear air mode, the radar antenna ROTATES MORE SLOWLY. This allows for a finer resolution and heightened sensitivity of the radar. The goal of clear air mode is to detect "clear air echoes".

Clear air echoes include dust, insects, birds, and even subtle reflection differences produced along boundaries in the troposphere due to.
