FMCW S-band Data



The University of Massachusetts FM-CW radar was deployed at IHOP 2002 to provide verification information of wave structures within and atop the ABL. This vertically pointing, high resolution (2.5 m range resolution) radar has shown its capability in discerning small scale wave motions like internal gravity waves and Kelvin-helmholtz waves. The radar was operated almost continuously from 13 May to 13 June. The radar was located at the "Auxilliary site" approximately 20 km east of the NCAR S-Pol radar site in the Oklahoma panhandle.
