IMPACTS_2020: Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms 2020


IMPACTS will determine how multi-scale dynamical and microphysical processes in winter storms interact to produce banded regions of snowfall, and will provide knowledge that informs remote sensing of snow from space and improves US storm prediction capabilities. The IMPACTS airborne instrument suite provides a synergistic range of measurements for snow process studies. It combines advanced radar, lidar, and microwave radiometer remote sensing instruments on the ER-2 with state-of-the-art microphysics probes and dropsonde capabilities on the P-3 to sample US East Coast winter storms.
