browse graphic The network consists of fixed weather radar systems and acoustic sensors (sodars) to measure wind and temperature fields in the lower atmosphere, scanning weather radar systems that provide the real-time capability of mapping out radial velocity and reflectivity of cloud particles, high speed instruments to measure turbulent heat, moisture, and momentum fluxes, ceilometers to measure cloud base height and to estimate cloud fraction, GPS rawinsonde systems, a tethered meteorological balloon that provides boundary layer profiles to 3 km, as well as in situ instrumentation to measure the radiative and sub-surface components of the surface energy balance in addition to the standard meteorological parameters.
