Codiac Project: Datasets

CPS project description

Cloud and Precipitation Study


The Cloud and Precipitation Study (CPS) will examine convective storms in the Miami area, such as thunder storms originating in the Everglades, sea-breeze initiated convection, and outer rain-bands of passing tropical storms. A variety of radars at various wavelengths will be used, allowing, for example, the relationship between up and down drafts and rain drop-size distributions to be examined, with the aim of improving the understanding of sub-tropical/tropical precipitation.
