WISP94 project description

Winter Icing and Storms Project, 1994


The Winter Icing and Storms Project, 1994 (WISP94) was conceived, organized and managed by the NCAR Research Applications Program (RAP). Many other entities participated in the Project, including the University of Wyoming, Colorado State University, the University of Illinois, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, MMM and ATD (Divisions within NCAR), and a few others. Funding was provided by the Federal Aviation Administration and United Airlines, with facility support and additional grant support from the National Science Foundation.

WISP94 was a carry-on, and an evolution, from the earlier RAP WISP experiments: WISP90, WISP91, and WISPIT. Experimental goals were more sophisticated than in the earlier endeavors, and the WISP94 instrumentation expanded upon capabilities available in those previous experiments.
