PRECIP98 project description

Precipitation Project, 1998


PRECIP98 (also called TEFLUN-B by NASA) was an experiment in the Melborne, FL area.

TUFLUN-B was the study of stratiform systems within close range of the S-POL radar, which were sampled with downlooking radars and radiometers. Comparisons were done  of the vertical hydrometeor profiles, and their relation to the vertical velocity structure deduced from the ER-2 Doppler Radar (EDOP) measurements and S-Pol. Rain rates in the stratiform rain derived from EDOP and S-POL were compared.

The corresponding Principal Investigator for the S-Pol component is Dr. Edward Brandes, NCAR Research Applications Program. Many other investigators were involved with this program. The S-Pol component of PRECIP98 was sponsored by the U.S. National Science Foundation.
