RIS-ID

{{risid}}

Synergistic long-term observations of vertically resolved cloud properties using a novel microwave radiometer/radar for Arctic clouds (SYNCLOUD)

The overarching goal of this project is to characterize in detail clouds on a long–term basis at AWIPEV exploiting the synergy of various remote sensing instruments. In order to gain high quality vertically resolved cloud information, a novel combined microwave radiometer/cloud radar will be installed, calibrated, and continuously operated.

Summary

The main goal for this season is the installation and continuous operation of a novel 94 GHz Frequency Modulated-Continuous Wave cloud radar (JOYRAD-94) at AWIPEV in order to continuously observe Arctic clouds with temporally and vertically highly resolved information on the cloud vertical structure. On the basis of the measured cloud radar Doppler spectra, procedures for radar data processing will be developed. The dependence of the quality of the radar measurements on instrument configuration will be analyzed and an optimum setup found. Absolute calibrations of the passive 89 GHz channel of JOYRAD-94 will be performed. The JOYRAD-94 measurements will be synergistically analyzed exploiting the information of the collocated instrumentation at AWIPEV, e.g. microwave radiometer (MWR), radiosondes, ceilometer, to retrieve a continuous, long-term data set of cloud macro- and microphysical properties.
