CPS: Cloud and Precipitation Study 2008


The Cloud and Precipitation Study (CPS) was a project aimed at examining shallow and deep convection, as well as stratiform precipitation, in a tropical/subtropical environment in an attempt to better understand cloud and precipitation processes.  The CPS project took place between August and September 2008 in Miami, Florida and was equipped with an EOL Integrated Sounding System (ISS).  The ISS included a 915 MHz Multiple Antenna Profiling Radar (MAPR), a radiosonde sounding system, a surface meteorology tower, and a ceilometer for measuring cloud base heights.
