OAR-Mobile Scanning Hydro-Radar (NOAA/D)
browse graphic NOAA/ETL has long operated a pair of transportable X-band Doppler radars for observing storm kinematics, boundary layer airflow, ocean surface features and tracking air parcels with chaff. One of these radars was outfitted in 1985 for circular dual-polarization measurements. More recently, that radar has been retired while the other, named NOAA/D, has become the focus of extensive hardware and data system upgrades.
